I was looking through the Bob Stotler file and found a few photos I hadn't posted. Some of you will recognize the Stotler name. Think Stotler Archery. Bob and his brothers worked for Howard Hill building longbows. Bob also helped Howard build personal bows including the first bamboo bow. Wayne Stotler went to Africa with Howard to film Tembo.

Tonto Rim, Arizona late 1930's.

More interesting photos.  Thank you Ira. As I looked over the photo with his bear, it struck me that Howard's quiver has only one or two arrows in it.
Today our quivers tote more on any given day while hunting.  I wonder what the story about that is about. Hmm....

From what I've seen, Howard wernt afraid to shoot no arra's.  I expect that quiver was full-up in the morning and the empty quiver is sign of much mischief 😎

Anybody else notice that this forum and others have done away with their cool emoji's and adopted these crappy generic excuses-for-emoji's?  Half the fun in posting is putting a fun emoji in it and that's gone now.

I’ve seen a picture of Howard with a bear kill but not the one above. Depending what month that picture was taken Howard would have been 29 or 30 years of age. The arrow is still in the bears chest.

He was trick shooting in my back yard in Satasota Fl. in about 1952 ?   He stayed for dinner.  Darn !! didn't take any pics.  Turned 80 and had to drop down to a 30lb. recurve.  Have a Ben Graham LH Bamboo Red Elm 54lb Longbow for sale, and a 48lb Dan Quillion LH recurve.

Yeah, saw that. 650#?  Ol Howard might have exaggerated a bit.

Hello everyone. Just thought I would share something myself. My grandfather is Donald Dobbs and has this signed and autographed picture that Howard Hill gave him and he has kept it safe for very many years. Thought everyone would enjoy seeing this!

Arizona picture looks like an ocelot to me rather than jaguar. Are ocelots ever found in Arizona?

Arizona is home to the bobcat, puma or mountain lion and ocelot, although the ocelot is not as plentiful as the others. Occasional, unconfirmed, sightings of jaguarundi have been reported. Jaguars are rarely seen in Arizona today. In 1938 that would not have been the case. Efforts have been made to increase the jaguar population.

That was cool 😎. Only one arrow left in his quiver while taking a bear? I agree with Graff, he was up to some mischief in them thar woods. I wish I had his hair.
