Hill wrote that his arrow travels from right to left in his sight line. He anchored past the corner of his mouth with the bow canted. The further one is from the target the less degree that will appear to be. With bows that are less center shot, I cant the bow more. When Hill wrote that his bows were not at all center shot, they never were center shot, probably in his pre-fiberglass days. He added the little leather foots as an arrow rest because his bows did not have much if any sight window cut outs. Staying away from that silly paradox theory stuff, Hill acknowledged his arrow position, according to his writing, although John Schulz said that he never taught that to him in the 50s. I suppose that over time the secondary 'imaginary' aiming point becomes instinctive, but over time the normal hand/eye coordination subconsciously develops a similar familiar visual framework.

I haven't read much on Howard, suppose I should.
Did he have a solid anchor, doesn't seem so from the videos I've watched.
I guess he was just "one with the bow " as it were.

There was a lot more persnickety exactness to his shooting than the videos suggest. i was told, years ago, that he sometimes missed and would simply shrug it off. I wonder what was called a miss. Something like, "I was shooting at the bumble bee's head, I missed and hit him in the butt."

There's a lot of videos in the pioneers and legends forum ...you can go and see exactly how he shot.

That I will do Terry.
Mike I'm taking my Wesley special out starting Aug 30th. Was planning on using a recurve again this year but man now that my hill is tuned I can't put it down.
I'm just struggling with bow quiver vs no bow quiver

Got my full Hill set up. String follow and a proper hill back quiver. Quick to line up a shot and quick to get another just incase. Perfect for hunting.

a long tube came today. In it was two bow strings, two files with safety edges, my very favorites that I was having a very hard time finding.

My test arrows. 1 28" bop 1918 with a 145 grain target point. 1 27" bop 1918 with a one piece ferrule and a glue-on 160 grain target point. 1 65 Acme cedar cut 27" bop 190 grain field point. 1 58 pound tapered Surewood cut to 27" bop 160 grain point. 1 53 pound Acme with a 160 point cut to net length 26&1/4" at the lead corner of the field point. 1 47 pound spine Wapiti tapered cedar cut to 27" bop with a 145 grain field point. This is from the above bow, and 20 yards. Not bragging about the group, but the fact that the group was done with above arrows and I cannot tell if any of them fly bad, they all looked stable and straight in flight. My neighbor said, 'you should take a picture of one those piles of arrows.' I was using his younger eyes for a second opinion on the arrow flight, he did with my phone. I have some serious doubts about arrow flight and tuning issues, I wonder if we make too much out of it at times. But oh my does this pretty stick throw arrows pretty.
