One thing that Jack Howard mentioned to me that illustrates his ability and dedication was that he never lost an animal that he hit with an arrow. Considering the number of animals he killed over his long career, that's quite an accomplishment.

What a great testimonial to Jack. If we all could have gotten together for a memorial service, I could not think of a better Eulogy.

You have a way with words that challenges MR. SACKETT.

Like you, as a teenager, I grew up drooling over Jack's stories and ads that appeared in Archery Magazines. I always admired him and wished that I could afford to get one of his bows in the early '60's. I now have 8 of them, and more importantly became good friends with him via e-mail and telephone over the last 6 years. It was great to make his acquaintence. It was an honer to call him "FRIEND".

Ms. Dorothy may take you up on the offer for refinishing. I have traded e-mail with Bowdoc. He is agreeing to finish all that need it, of course at a charge. Also, Bowdoc always has a backlog of work. Your offer may be her best bet, but I would think it only fair that you get something for your efforts. I recommended to her that she sell theses bows at a reduced rate and let the buyers make arrangements to have them finished by Bowdoc, Droptine59, or anyone they want. However, any of these bows will have to be sold with no warranty or guarantee as Ms. Dorothy has do way of replacing a defective bow. Now, that is an oxymoron. A defective Jack Howard bow. I don't think there ever was such a thing. Jack once told me that he had never had to honor his warranty, or his guaranty that his bows were faster than anything you were currently shooting, or your money back.

The most important part of your hunting setup is the broadhead. The rest is just the delivery system.

After reading what everyone posted here it strikes me that Mr Howard was one that gave much to this great lifestyle.
Not only did he raise the bar high for the rest of us, he provided the tools and insite on how to get there.

I have a few emails that I traded and will now cherish even more.

Thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and those close. RS

When I first got into archery, I wanted to know all of the whos, whys, whats and wheres; in particular, the whos of the sport.

I always looked for the escapades of Jack Howard in Bow and Arrow magazine; he most often hunted alone but many times his friend Doug Kittredge tagged along. Do yourself a favor and get ahold of some of the old Bow and Arrow magazines from the 60's and early 70's and look for his articles.

It's sad to have lost him, but it is even sadder to know that many will just follow-up with a "Jack who (?)" when his name is mentioned. I'm sure his old buddy, Doug Kittredge is heart-sick. Prayers from Pennsylavnia.

Thanks to everyone for your comments. I spoke to Mrs. Howard today and told her of all the comments that have been made. She was touched. She is not a computer person so she cannot log on to TRADGANG to read them, so I printed out all the comments made to this point and mailed them to her. I know she will appreciate them.

I hope that when my time comes and someone posts my passing here, that I can get 1/10 of the positive comments tht you have given Jack.

NAW, most of you will probably say
"Good ridance".

Here's the Jet brochure cover. This bow has the best grip of any bow I've ever owned or shot.

I remember Jacks stories of a grizzly around his tent and him sitting up all night. I was honored to have owned one of his bows in my early years of bowhunting. It is sad when legends pass,however he leaves us with tales of adventure and great bows. His family with great memories of a life lived the way he wanted to live it. Our family's prayers to his wife

Charlie,

Would you mind copying and pasting your 1st post to the Articles/Stories forum?

And, if anyone has any good pics of Jack I wish you would send them to me via email.... we'll add them to Charlie's comments on that forum as well as put up a tribute banner.
