Congrats!  We assume you will have the decency to post copious pictures once you have the new Hill.   :D

I don't want to talk about it.   :saywhat:  

200 Hills! Man! Can you take a photo of them all?   :clapper:  

I'll just say that those bow stringers I mentioned aren't coming over here all by themselves...

And, I reckon I hinted at it to my wife, but when she finds out... well, she'll let me know that merely hinting and talking hypotheticals isn't the same as actually asking.   :goldtooth:

And I thought I was the only one with a HH itch. I have been resisting scratching but I think I am weakening. You guys are sure making it hard.

Hill shooters coming out of the woodwork. Hope you all enjoy as much as I have all these years. Get used to longer bows w/straight grip & shame on you.

I will have to get some pictures to go with this post but I just picked up from the P.O. a "new-to-me" sweet shooting Big 5 66' 51@28.

Ah ha! I found some online but I'll take some of my own later.

Ben...I'll gladly take the blame mate !
I reckon you'll find the longer length all the sweeter and ebony and 'boo under clear glass is about as good as it gets .

I shoot a league in winter, some technohunt. I shot my personal best yesterday and was within many wheelie bow shooters' scores!  A 202. I didn't miss a target. 68" 45# redman. I did get antler tips and ebony riser. I like the darker risers but have seen some w snakewood too that r cool! I am finding that I shoot lighter and longer bows about 50 and less easier and more accurately. I can handle more, but not for long
