Bowhunting package ***SOLD***

11 posts in this topic

For sale:

2005 Hoyt Protech

Right handed model, Safari pattern, adjustable draw weight (60-70), adjustable draw length (26 to 30). This comes with a stabilizer (7" Doinker) and drop away rest (AP Safari Twister). The bow is in excellent shape- very well taken care of. All the buyer will need to shoot is a sight (I kept the sight from this bow) and some arrows.

Also in this package is a Bushnell rangefinder. It's an older model (approx. 12 years old or so), but it works perfectly.

Price = $499.99

For anyone looking for a well taken care of bow, check this one out. You will still have time to go hunting without to much set up.

I didn't want to split up the bow and range finder, but the range finder has been sold to a friend of a friend. So... the bow is still for sale. Price = $400.

Still for sale? I am looking to get into bowhunting, is this a good bow to start with or is it too advanced?

Lance- you're welcome. I hope you stick a big buck because you have the yardage perfect!

Donk- Nope, it's not too advanced. If you're interested, I can show you the "ins and outs" of it and have you up and running in no time. The only things you'll need in addition to the bow are a rest, some arrows, and a release. Any bowshop or the archery dept. at Sheels in St. Cloud will have you up and running in less than an hour. The arrows and release will be very easy and they can put on a easy to set rest for you. They should also help you get the rest set up too. If you're interested, feel free to give me a call (701-799-5344).

FYI- you could get a decent starter bow for roughly the same money (if you bought it new). However, I can pretty much guarentee this bow will be faster and quiter than any off the shelf starter bow (like any of the packages Scheels sells). I have no doubt you'll be happy with it.

Donk,

I'm leaving town for ten days. You can reach me at the cell number posted above for about the next 24 hours, but then I'll be unavailable for about a week. I'll reply as soon as I'm back.

Sold. Good luck, Donk!

BTW, I realized that I should have mentioned that I'm thinking about shooting new arrows. If you're interested in buying my old ones, let me know. I shot Carbon Express CX 400's and they performed well for me. I'm thinking about rearrowing to shoot a little heavier arrow for future elk hunting adventures. FYI- the CX's are 414 grains (with 100 grain broadhead) with tip, which is moderately heavy for whitetail (which is good for kinetic energy), but I'm going to go up to around 500 grains. Let me know if you're interested.

Will do, I am planning to take it into the shop tonight and get it set up. I will check out what they recommend for arrows and let you know. Thanks for meeting me up there, and going over a few things. I haven't tried to get the extended bolt out yet, we'll see how that goes.. smirk.gif BTW, we had a great duck hunt Sat and Sun, between the 2 of us we shot something like 100 shells in the air grin.gif Ended up with 14 ducks and a couple geese. Thanks again Scoot, I cant wait to get shooting with it!

Cool, sounds like fun. I haven't hunted waterfowl for a couple years- fun stuff!

Regarding the bold- the more I think about it, the more my suggestion is to unscrew it where it comes apart. Then, go to a hardware store and get the correct bolt to screw back into the stabilizer. This should be easy to do and better than fighting the stinking thing. I should cost you about $0.25.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
