My intention with this thread is for it to be a place where we can display all things associated with John's bowyering and business endeavors.  Please feel free to add photos of any products related to or crafted by John.  I think we have other threads where pictures of John go, so let's keep them there.  And please feel free to post photos of your Schulz-built bows.  I did so you should too.  I would love to see them and I'm sure others would as well.  Obviously this includes bows from when he was employed at Howard Hill Archery, prior to striking out on his own.  Thanks for contributing.

I am lucky to own an American LongBow "Trophy Hunter" that looks exactly like the one pictured in the advertisement above.

Here are some photos of the Fred Kurtz/John Schulz "Hunter's Head" broadhead.  They are the only pictures I've been able to find.  According to the American Broadhead Collector's Club master list, there were 12 different versions of this head designed before it was released into production.  Some were square shoulder, some were barbed.  Eleven of those designs were experimental and constructed in 1975, with the final, square-shouldered version released in 1976. The head was 3.09"L x 1.05"W, 3:1, just like Howard suggested.  I'm not sure if the square shoulder pictured below is the final version or not.  The barbed must be one of the experimental versions.  Hopefully there's a collector around here that can help me out.

I was able to get a hold of a two of these heads from Nate (thanks again).  I can't say enough good things about them.  They sharpen easily and are very close in profile to Hill heads.  I will hopefully be sending one through a deer after this Saturday's opener powered by a bow John Built.  The other will be kept and admired.  Wish they still made them!

Thanks for the photo Greg.  Is that single bevel a Grizzly or a Kodiak?  Or something else?  I'm hope to let at least one 140gn or 160gn Grizzly fly this year.  They are about as close as you can get to a Hill or Schulz head, and I like the fact that they aren't vented.  

Will you be using "Sagittarius" to launch that Hunter's Head?  Good luck.

Yup!

That is a 160 Kodiak.  They are no longer being made because the metal is a little thinner in the point which gives them a tendancy to fold up a little more than a grizz or 200 Kodiak.  They will work fine for deer though.  I bought 3 packs before they went out.  Still plenty tough.  I fired one into my rocky soil about 50 times and it sharpened back up pretty easily....just wore off all the teflon paint.

This should almost be in the collectors forum.

There is also a Hunters Head look alike that has a Snuffer ferrule and is named the American Eagle.

There were also two Hunter's Heads made by Madbury Arrow Works, and two Hunter's Edge made by East Side archery.
Picture is the Hunters Edge.
[sy4l]



There several versions of the Howard Hill heads, including two Howard Hill by Ben Pearson.
Top is hand made by Howard Hill 1942
next is Craig Eakin replica of the HIll elephant head
bottom two are the more common Hill heads 5/16 & 11/32
[9cxi]
Adding any of the Hunters Heads or Hunters Edge or the older Howard Hill heads is going to be difficult and somewhat expensive. It also really helps to know the differences between the two(Hunters Head & Hunters Edge) heads and the variations of both. There are also the Jerry Hill heads which look (along with these-Hoiland, Crestwood, Eagle Talon) very much like a Howard Hill, and some heads from Australia (Silencer & Vince Hamilton)that are copies.

Thanks for all of the great information, Ron.  I didn't realize that there were so many copies of the Schulz Hunter's Head manufactured.  The reason I didn't put this in the collectors forum is that I want to have a place here for John's productions, so to speak.  I hope everyone feels free to add anything associated with John's business endeavors here.  

I'll keep my eye out for those old broadheads.  I know it won't be easy, but that's collecting, right?  I do have a very nice 5/16 brass pin Hill, 24 Serrations/Inch. That's a start.

That is a really sweet looking bow, Tox.  I think you've posted it on another website before, right?  I have never seen another "Cougar".  What are the materials in that bow?  Looks like Osage Orange, which when it ages is about as pretty a wood as you can get.  So much mellower than the bright yellow it is when fresh. Love that amber-honey glow.  What's the length and draw weight, too?

And don't take this the wrong way, but one of my pet peeves is the incorrect spelling of John's last name.  It's spelled Schulz.  There is no T in the name.  Sorry to vent.  I see it all the time and it makes my head explode [gr_bomb]

Here is my American Longbow by John Schulz, all bamboo-no glass, 64", marked 37# @ 25" but I'm sure it has lost some due to string follow caused from me shooting it with my longer draw. Wish I could find a longer one because I absolutely love the way it shoots.

Most people think John designed the Hunter's Head, however the original design was by John Lee, it had the blunt end and step to the end of the ferrule, Schulz wanted the end of the ferrule flattened and that is what happened to the production model which slightly weakened the ferrule.

Two 4.....I saw that brochure....copied it to my computer just as you did.

I wanted it real bad,  was bidding to the end, but it went too high for my budget.
