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.

This is my first Wesley special. And i cant wait for the new one.I couldnt believe how easy it was to shoot a D bow with a straight grip.And all this talk about hand shock is   :dunno:  I must be holding it right.

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

I know all about it. My favorite at the moment is a 66" Wesley drawing 58@28. In fact, most of my bows are within a pound or two of that draw. Nothing feels like bamboo, whether in a bow limb or a fly rod.

I think every one who buys, sells or trades bows has the one that they wish they had back. Mine was a 68" 58@28 Wesley with clear glass, an ebony riser, dished grip and no tip overlays. That one ended up going to a new home when money was tight way back in the mid '90s and I still miss it.

Right now, the stable is down to the Wesley, a Cheetah and 10 or 11 other assorted longbows, all similar in profile to a Hill. Add in a couple of '50s style recurves and my project next week is to make some racks for bows and flintlocks.

Good choice    :thumbsup:

African Blackwood makes a great contrasting riser wood against lighter colored limb cores. Here is my "Owl" that is Osage/African Blackwood.

Here's a couple more Ebony ones for you guys! It looks really nice with clear glass, but I prefer black glass with mine!

   
   
   

The Hill bug bit me several years ago but he was nothing compared to the latest one that got me - the Sunset Hill Bug....a vicious little critter whose bite causes severe anxiety, hair loss, nail biting, and a rapid loss of available funds!   :help:    Thank goodness the treatments aren't TOO expensive LOL!
