TAS Member Mike Wheeler shared this picture on the TAS Facebook Group.

Howard Hill 1961, Forksville PA, bow festival. Howard is shown shaking hands with my good friend Jeff Musser from Lock Haven, PA who was 16 at the time. They use to release wild boar they trucked in from Florida and had a hunt. Jeff made a perfect running shot on the boar you see hanging in the tree and Howard was congratulating him and then offered Jeff the chance to shoot a round with him.

How cool is that to have been congratulated by Howard Hill.

HUD,

Yes he did. He told Mike he was as good as of a shot as he heard. The targets were made out of some kind of paper mache and burlap. There was a turkey target at about 25 yards. Howard said he was going to shoot it in the head. He put one just at the base of the head. He then said one good arrow deserves another and did it again and put the second arrow beside the first.

Mike, I agree It’s really cool to hear these stories about how well Howard shot even in his later years. I’ve heard a few that in his 60’s and later he still shoot amazing. Roy Hoff made similar remarks about Howard’s shooting.
