I re watched the short film Cavalcade of Archery with Howard Hill trick shooting.  Does anyone know about the bow he is shooting?  There is a photo I found online of the John Lee display and there is a longbow that looks very similar to the bow.  

The longbow has black side laminated pieces and appears to be backed.  I was wondering if this bow has belly glass.  It appears to be bamboo laminate.  

Anyone know the history of this longbow?

The bow I seen that Hill built for Don Carson was laminated and it had vulcanized rubber on the back and nothing on the belly.

Where did you see that longbow? 

I was wondering if that is glass on the back or some other materiel. 

Did the longbow you looked at, look like the one Hill is using?

We were on a hunt in Ohio when we went to the taxidermist to drop off Vic’s buck we met Bill. Bill had two bows Howard made for Don Carson. One of bows had the Vulcanized fiber on the back. John Lee does have one in his collection that looks like that.

Jeff,

Here’s pictures of the bow after I seen it. You can see the Vulcanized fiber on the back of the bow. The VF was used before fiberglass.

Cool deal.  Darren thank you for linking that thread.  Interesting the older Hill bows and how they were built.

My understanding is Howard had a problem with the handle separating from the staff, because of the very narrow handle that flexed too much. He added the vulcanized paper used on the back to the sides. The bow John Lee has is one that was built for a gentlemen in San Francisco and financial advisor to Errol Flynn. It was never used, heavy weight, with about 3" of backset. It was sold by his daughter a couple years ago on Ebay.

At a point in the late 30's Howard's bows got very narrow and the grip would lay over to one side, he put vulcanized fiber on the sides of the grip to stop that. The bow that Hud refers to was made in 1938 for Errol Flynn's attorney; Cy Johnson. John Lee acquired the bow from Cy's son and it is my understanding the bow had never been shot. It resided on two pegs in a closet until about 2010 when John purchased it.
