Paul,
I'll have to ask my mom, there may some more somewhere, but Im sure there where some weird years there after he died and things get buried you know.  My whole life the only pics I've had of him were whats in Saggitarius and his other book In Africa.  People on the internet seem to have more pictures than I do.  I seem to find new ones I've never seen every time feel like digging into history.  What I have never seen and would love is footage.  
When I find free time Im slowing adding and improving BobSwinehartArchery.com   I've paid very little attention to all this most of my life, and for some reason its intoxicating this year.  Please email me anything that isnt in the books, Id be much obliged.  

In addition to this, maybe this is for another thread, but I would like to see that Bob is inducted to the Hunting Hall of Fame.  Does anyone out there agree it is deserved?  It was far too long after he died that The Archery Hall of Fame inducted him.  Its my opinion that hunting tip their hat his way as well.  Howard Hill has said some tremendous compliments about Bob as a hunter and there is plenty of evidence in his books.  Here's three pics that happen to be on my desktop at the moment that I recently stirred up somewhere online.  All Bob Swinehart and Howard Hill.  Finally ordered my first Hill bow and I'll be waiting by the mailbox for the next five weeks like a kid at Christmas.

You might try contacting the "Professional Bowhunters Society" your father was one of the founding fathers. They might try getting him inducted for you. That would be cool.

As Im looking into it Im not sure there even is a hunting hall of fame.  The bowhunters hall of fame looks very inactive.  Is it even something anyone is keeping alive or finds interest in?  The number on the website doesn't work and it says copyright 2009.  

Info on past legends and recognition of the greats by other greats is a thing to preserve for future bowhunting enthusiasts.  Keeps me inspired to geek out on this stuff anyway. 

What does it matter really at the end of the day.  Id rather be shooting myself than talk about those who did, but damn its fun and glad to know there plenty of folks on this site who do too.

Eventually.  I can't promise when yet, but I'll be putting some treasures up there.  I'll keep you posted.  Hit me first if you find a way to put a few more hours in a day.

  In order to get someone entered into the Archery Hall of Fame someone is going to have to nominate him. After that someone is going to have to be his "champion" in that they are going to be required to make a case for why he should be nominated. Then, from nomination to induction if it happens can be a considerable amount of time.

OK, here are a few things I found out when talking to a gentleman that had Bob stay at his house and hunt with him on several occasions.  The man was friends with my great uncle and was involved with an archery club here in MD.  The club heard about Bob's African adventures and his affiliation with Hill.  The club invited Bob to come and give a presentation and talk about his Africa trip which he did and it was well received.  The club took him on a hunt where he killed a deer using deadheads.  The deer was not a trophy, but Bob made a clean kill.  No one saw him shoot so I have no info. of his form.

The following year Bob apparently invited himself down again to hunt.  The gentleman helped him build a very large treestand.  Bob apparently had a large bag full of telephone pole spikes and a heavy hammer.  It was sturdy!  Bob commented that a treestand should be comfortable.

Of course he always had his pretzels with him. 

He also said that Bob was featured in a 1962 PA game news publication.  I would like to get a copy of that.

Bob told him that When Howard Hill put on a demonstration, he would have warmed up by shooting for the crowd in the parking lot!  This gentleman had a good friend that shot with Hill at Forksville.  He commented that the guys would shoot at leaves on the ground....Hill would shoot at spots on the leaves.
