HH BUG GOT ME - Part Two!
« on: September 18, 2013, 09:27:00 PM »
After over 1000 pages and 15000 posts, the original ""HH bug got me" thread hit a forum software threshold and refused to work, so that thread has been fixed and this one continues the great tradition of the original American flatbow, the Howard Hill Longbow!

... please continue that great conversation!

       :campfire:       

        :shaka:   

PART ONE IS    HERE   

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Below is Pokerdaddy's "Echo" that's being referenced in the other posts below.

"Met Chuck Deshler from Two Tracks yesterday.  Picked up an Echo that ya'll gotta see.  66" 54@28.  All Walnut limbs with clear glass.  Beautiful Myrtle riser with exposed fades.  Got her dialed in today, and I gotta say she's a shooter!"

This pic is from Chuck, before she was finished up.
    

Here she is all dolled up.

We finally got some cooler weather and it sure is nice to be out shooting more then just a few shots before the heat ran me back inside. My Hill style BBO I built sure is a pleasure to shoot.

Saturday I also received a new-to-me JD Berry Morningstar from member lineman72.  Sweet reverse-handle with a touch of backset.  66" 51@27, so also roughly 54@28.  Haven't had a chance to take any pics of it yet, but it can be seen in the thread, "Elegance, JD Berry Morningstar".

Good weekend!

Great looking bow, Andrew! And a Morning Star too? Wow!

How do you like the feel of those 66"ers?

Tracy... VERY NICE!!! I think you are getting the hang of it and glad to hear you're getting out and shooting. The weather does make it easier.

I got out after deer last night but didn't see anything except a fox squirrel that really didn't like the looks of me.
If I'd have had a squirrel arrow with me I'd have settled his rant. As it was after a half hour straight of his chattering, I cut a sapling that was nice and straight, trimmed the bumps and limbs, cut a nock in it and shot it at him. (left handed pinch draw) That made him leave even though it was flying sideways when it went past him.

Looking for the mother load of white oak acorns for now so I'll be moving around a lot.

My homemade longbow worked very good first Morning on the stand.

It was a bit shiny so I put some paint on it.RC

We can all safely assume that RC is in no way a vegetarian...I have a feeling he's providing protein to a small nation from the swamps of GA...

Very Nice RC!
