Below is a link to the stand-alone web version of this entire part one topic.

It is a HUGE file that contains THOUSANDS of images!  This file resides on Trad Gang but it is NOT part of the Trad Gang FORUM.  It's totally separate and private.

***BE AWARE!*** Even with fast broadband Internet access, and a fast computer, it will take MINUTES for the file to load, it's THAT LARGE!

Once the page FULLY loads, use your BROWSER to search the entire page for keywords.  If you view the page with FireFox, click on the menu item "Edit" and then "Find" and a search dialogue will pop up on the bottom of your screen. It's very similar when using Windows Explorer.

Sorry fellas, I just had to laugh! Jason told me yesterday my new Tembo was finished and to look for it early next week. This will give me an all Howard Hill line up with the exception of my Maddog recurve.

It bit me too. Got a Wesley about a month ago and see a Big 5 in my near future. Just a little heavier than 56@28. I have started making POC arrows again like crazy. I shoot during the day and even again at night in the basement. Every day!!!

The HH bug has bitten me as well!   It all started when I bought a Wesley Special off of Mike "GRAPES" Vines.   After shooting it for the first time, my Black Widows have gathered dust ever since.   With the right arrow, these things hit right where you're looking!   I gave in to this new malady when I snagged the HH Black Bear off of the classifieds this morning!   Thank God the wife gave an enthusiatic blessing to proceed!  
     Which bow and what kind of riser wood did you order Ben?   I really liked the ebony riser on the bow you unveiled to us on Christmas!   Sharp!

You gotta love it!!!  I`ve said this many times, A Hill bow may not be the fastest,easiest to master or short and easy to move around in a blind in but they are the most enjoyable killers to shoot.RC

KPaul that's easy, "every man has to have a back up bow" Wives have back up pocketbooks don't they?

I just got off the phone with Craig and he's doing the final spray on my "Robin Hood" special.

I've got to get on the ball and sell some bows!...lol

I'm not sure the word "pumped" rises to the level that correctly reflects my mood...lol

God bless, Mudd

KPaul you've got good taste. I have a TD "RedMan" with an extra lam of yew, 64", 53@28 with Ebony riser and tips. It is something special. My "Wesley Special" is 66", 50@28, carbon backed lambo, with ebony riser, and elk horn tips and riser overlay. Oh yea, it also has a black ostrich stitched grip. Hard to beat the clean look of ebony on a Hill bow.

My HH bite is still itching. That's because I still have another month to go until I'll be able to place my orded.

Kpual, I also plan to order a 68" Redman. I'd love to see pics of your bow if you have any.

i saw a fleeting post about a yew Pete George at the Footed Shaft and jumped all over it.  i guess the appropriate word is "shocked", man what a bow. My wife said "You better get it before someone who does not know what it is gets it."  Can i pick 'em or what.

I have a 68" Redman and a 70" Wesley Special. I have to say the Wesley is my favorite. I own many different types of bows and the Hill's are my favorite. Light as a feather...
