1,000 pages is pretty ridiculous.  I guess the rumors about the sickness are true.  Think this thread will make it to 2,000?

Ron I had an Owl that was IMHO the best looking Hill I have owned. Unfortunately the pics of it were on my phone and it is no longer working. As far as performance, it was right up there with the all bamboo bows but with a little more thump at release.

Most of you have seen 'La Grange' the phenolic Big River, but here she is again:

 
 

Also, I couldn't resist, I bought Joe's righty 70" 105@30 Bama Tribute:

 

Tendonitis be damned!!!

I already commissioned a lefty one with Nate, should be done in about 3-4 months.  Wenge riser blacked out beauty 70" 100@30..she'll be named 'Werewolf'.

Danny,
That is one of my favorite, if not favorite lines ,paragraphs about the longbow and my love for it. When I was reading Instinctive Shoooting 2 and got to that point it blew me away at the truth behind it and how he captured it into words.

I was a member of Dick Wightmans Howard Hill email list until it was finally ended. About that time this thread started and I have read every single post since the day it started. Thank you all for giving me something to feed my daily addiction.

Thanks Brian. That's a section of his book that has stuck with me. Fred autographed my copy at Pope & Young earlier this year. He and his bride Teresa are great folks to be around and just sit and talk.

Beautiful display of your Hill's, Arne.  True inspiration.

My list ebbs and flows, and am on the hunt for another Wesley at the moment, but here's my Half Breed "Second Chance", which is where I rest my tab and my hopes with season now only 12 days away.
