    Howard Hill

    Just watched, "The Adventures of Robin Hood," with Errol Flynn (1938) and they showed a film clip of Howard Hill and how he did all the trick shooting for the movie. I looked him up on Findagrave.com and found some pretty impressive stuff about him and his shooting skills.

    What I find really impressive was that he used a 90 lb. pull longbow. That took some serious strength.

    I've included some info about him and some of the videos of his shooting. For the younger people, you have to remember that he did much of this stuff from the 20's-60's.

    My hat's off to Howard!

    There are a short series of videos at this site:

    Howard Hill was amazing. I have a bow built by his bowyer. Great shooting longbow. I remember a lot of old timers talking about him...Howard was a legend.
