Paul "Skip" Hamaker

A dedicated outdoorsman, craftsman and artist, and one of the handful of people responsible for the flintlock season as we know it today in PA, has passed.
RIP Skip Hamaker!

Another of the giants of the muzzle loading revival of the 1960's and 1970's.

Re: Paul "Skip" Hamaker

I have a horn that my Dad gave me, 25 plus years ago, that he
made. It has a Timberdoodle on it and it one of my prized possesions.
Sorry to hear the news.

Re: Paul "Skip" Hamaker

Had the Honor to discuss horn work with Skip many years ago!!! He was a great asset to the "long Rifle Culture" he will Sorely be missed.

He was a craftsman, a nice guy and a whole lot of fun to be around.

Re: Paul "Skip" Hamaker

I'd always run into Skip at the Blue Mountain shoot in the late '70s and '80s. He'd visit Dixon's during those same time periods. He did a tremendous amount of work on behalf of muzzleloaders in the state of Pennsylvania. He'll be missed.

Re: Paul "Skip" Hamaker

His horns will help carry his memory forward, and his role in fighting for our Flintlock Only season, are just two of the many things for which Skip will be remembered. Rest in Peace.
