dating damon howatt bows-23

I know they where bought by Martin Archery and use the same plant to build bows, but when did they start making bows, and where did the name come from, is it two guys last names or is it one guys full name? Joe But then I got lucky and recently bought this 1973 version on **** for cheap as it was a filthy mess. If you do, just remember brazilian rosewood is oily and needs to be sealed before you put the new finish on. Recently, I found a Purple Hart Hunter at a good price. While I am considering doing the work myself, the bow merits professional work. Accordingly, I am looking for information about professional refinishing, names, and contact information.

any thing you could tell me would be great, or is there something I could read up on to get this information. I just found this thread while searching for information on a Damon Howatt bow I picked up several years ago.

However the biggest drawback for me is the size of my frame.

I was wondering if anyone can tell me about Damon Howatt. I've got new carbons on the way and plan to make up some heavier arrows for the bow and see how they shoot. The rosewood will darken to a deep reddish brown once you take the old finish off.

Dean did tell me that living in Nixa, Missouri he has over the many years, "picked the brains" of those Black Widow boys just a bit.

The limbs are comprised of black glass limbs and laminate bamboo core, glass overlays on the tips for fast flight bowstring.

The handles are cut VERY far past center shot on the metal riser.

Not radical and unstable, but enough for some punch.

(Photo is from a 1970 Sabo ad) Bear "Special Limited Numbered Edition" Take Down Autographed by Fred Bear (1980) Includes 22 karat gold plated limb mounts, clear glass and custom display box. The Yew for these bows was cut and seasoned by Earl Ulrich, at age 91.

Earl selected Yew for bows all his life in the high mountains of Oregon The riser is made of Brazilian Rosewood with decorative fiberglas tips.

Other than the salesperson in the local sporting goods (no, no big box stores back then) I had no contact with anyone who had shot one. I took an archery class to fulfill one of my university requirements and had access to the archery range whenever it was not formally in use. By the end of the course I managed to pass the course using this bow…something that most other students in the class struggled to master if they tried it out. I was more than happy with the Hunter and it is the first bow I used to take to the woods after large game/white-tailed deer.
