Howard Hill himself was born in 1900 and died at the age of 75, in 1975. Howard Hill’s archery legacy includes the incredibly impressive fact that he won 196 successive archery field tournaments.

Howard Hill’s long bow was his specialty. He was featured in several movies (including A 1938 production of The Adventures of Robin Hood) and produced several archery documentaries, where he showed off his amazing and hard to believe (even by today’s standards) tricks and abilities.

That passion for archery survives with the Howard Hill Bows currently available on the market. The Howard Hill archery line focuses on simplicity, quality, and exceptional commitment to craftsmanship.

The Howard Hill longbows are crafted from extremely carefully picked, all natural wood for optimum strength, smoothness, and just the right amount of flexibility. For example, the top of the line Howard Hill long bow known as the "Wesley Special” features amazingly smooth and resilient laminated bamboo.

Other Howard Hill bows in the high end, wood longbow family include the Big Five. The wood used for these bows include not only high end bamboo, but fast and sturdy yew, durable osage orange, beautiful honey locust, gorgeous rocky mountain juniper, and rich red elm. Many of the Howard Hill bows combine two of these woods for an exceptional archery bow that is both beautiful in appearance and impossible to beat in feel and performance.

Howard Hill bows are simple and very well built, with enough choices to create a hard to beat and impressive lineup. Most of the long bows mentioned above can come specialized fitted with specialized small or large grip sleeves, or in junior sizes for youth archery bows.
