Hawkeye Handcrafted Bows

I started crafting bows in 1962 for Hit Archery in Archbold, Ohio. My mentor was Bud Hitt. He had me starting on finishing the bows and making the string grooves. Then once I had accomplished that I started gluing them together and shaping the handles. With Bud's teaching I can now craft them start to finish
