Byron is a great shot and a really nice guy.

But Howard Hill was THE man with a longbow. Not only did Howard do all the trick shooting that Byron did but he also was an honest to goodness world champion target shot and a highly accomplished big game shot as well.

I love shooting traditional bows and especially love Hill style longbows. It takes practice but its not hard. It takes about as much skill as throwing a baseball well if you think about it. Not that throwing a baseball accurately is easy. But if you practice enough you can do it--and nobody puts sights on a baseball.

There are some good vids of Howard on Youtube.
