I'll say. Young and his friend Saxton Pope got it done with the purity they learned from Ishi.

Thaw was neat to watch. I thought it was pretty impressive how many arrows he pumped into that moose and to a lesser extent the bear.

An old buddy of mine got me interested in bow hunting about 30 years ago. Compound. Then he moved on to building his own longbows using Yew as far as I know. but he just took the challenge to the next level; he even took it hog hunting + after he shot one he wanted to go after it but thank God his grown son was there + said, Dad, is that really a smart thing to do?. Excuse me but when I'm hog hunting I want ALL the advantages I can get + that includes an M1A.

I have the book about Ishi somewhere in the office. A great read! Last of his tribe. His later years were at the University of CA, he lived in the dorms at Berkley. When asked what was the greatest of tools the white man came up with, his answer was "The Vise".


Speaking of men, I recall reading of Howard Hill when he went on his African hunt and killed a bull elephant with his long bow.

Howards bow had a 105 pound pull!!! I think the arrows were made from 1/2 inch diameter wood dowels and were around 36 inches long.

I've been Bowhunting for around fifty years and started before compounds were being sold. Other than a few times trying them the rest have been with recurves and longbows some of which I built. The thing I never like about compounds is why make something so simple complex? It just takes a lot of practice.

I've had the opertunity to handle a couple of both Pope's and Young's bows years ago. Pretty cool.

I hunted traditional for years, long before compounds came on the scene. Big Grin Still have both a Bear Grizzly and a Bear Kodiak-both 55 lb recurves that shooting perfectly. Big Grin I have also hunted with compounds. Both have their virtues and vices. tu2

I still recall that photo of Fred Bear (by his back photographer) ready to shoot an elephant. Muy cajones!

I have most of the videos (films) that Fred Bear made. It's interesting to watch how he stalked. He didn't mess around and moved quickly until he was close. Then he snuck in.

Roger, those bows you have made -- self bows? Pacific yew? Vine maple?

Yes, locally harvested yew for both the self bows and a hickory backed yew bow. I learned in one of Jay St Charles bow building classes. We where both directors of our states bowhunting organization at the time.

Fred always had someone with a big rifle accompanying him, I forget how many times it took for him to get the polar bear thing right. Big Grin

1992 made for tv movie starring Jon Voight about Ishi, "Last of his Tribe".

Well worth watching.

+1. On the Ishi movie. tu2
A good but sad tale.

I also have the book by Saxton Pope, another good one.
