Found this trophy at an antique store in Southern California. It’s inscribed 

V.B.H. Clout shoot Oct. 22,1961.             I’m thinking Verdugo a club Howard Hill was a member at. If any one would know it would be Ugly Coyote. Can’t wait too hear from him

mojave, I'll have to defer to someone else on this one. The club you refer to is The Verdugo Hills Archers in Tujunga, CA. They were founded in 1953 by Ted Ekin and Dick Garver, Sr. and they are still active. Howard Hill definitely had a connection to the club. He was often a speaker at club events and along with Elizabeth donated a trophy for a shoot named in his honor.

With all that being said, it appears the V.B.H. is not connected to the Verdugo Hill Archers.

Found out 2 things.

1. Howard Hill was an honorary member of the Verdugo Hills Archers, according to an article in the May 1961 issue of Archery magazine.

2.  VBH appears to be Valley Bow Hunters in Upland, CA. They don't come up in an online search. Who knows what happened to them?

Article from the August 1961 issue of Archery.

Cool find! 

There was a fella from England that posted a video today shooting clout on the TAS Facebook page.

I would have had to decline. That would have fallen into into the third week of our deer season here.

Ugly coyote Upland Ca. Is my place of birth. Lived in Upland and neighboring city Ontario. Never knew Upland had a club back in the day. I’ll have to ask my Dad if he knew of VBH. Thanks for the research and info. I always read your post and you are a walking encyclopedia archery. Thanks Jon
