I know nothing about a Bowtech as I have never shot one. I would be careful with the price of a used bow and be careful that one doesnt have to replace the string and cable. If a cam or string and cable need to be replaced, make sure you are buying it right. Also, make sure that the draw length fits you and if it does not to see how much adjusting one can do to change the draw without affecting the preformance of the bow.

I dont want to sound like I'm trying to talk you out of it but to be sure all is good with the bow before you purchase it and then have to spend a fair amount of money on it and find out just maybe it wasnt that good of a deal.

Good luck.

Alot of the shops I have talked to say that Bowtech's need to be tuned. Alot! Or one comment was that "they are not so fun to tune." I was looking at the Gaurdian, but the more I talk to people I'll stick to my HOYT.

I've owned two bowtech bows and i have never had any trouble with either. I am currently using the Bowtech Gaurdian and just love it. At 60 yrds. i'm in a two inch. group. But buying a used bow i would have it looked at by a tech to make sure the limbs are in good shape. From there if the price is right, yet you really have to be careful buying used bows.

I haven't shot that exact bow, but I've owned a couple Bowtechs and loved them. The statement above about them needing to be tuned a lot doesn't apply any more to Bowtech than it does any other brand.

I'd agree that it's a very good idea to have it checked out before you purchase it. Also, like H.L. alluded to- can you get it worked on if you have problems? Obviously, it's buyer beware on a used bow like that. However, it sounds like it could be a good deal.

Give me a couple more weeks. I had the big brother of the buck in my post, about 70 yards away this weekend. Hopefully I can chalk up another monster with my old, hard to tune Patriot. wink.gif Honestly, I've never had any problems tuning my bow. The only thing that threw me, for a short time anyway, was when the moleskin on the plunger of my trophy taker rest wore off, and I couldn't figure out why I was shooting low. It took me a good half hour of checking screw tightness, shooting arrows and just looking at my entire bow to actually look at the rest plunger. As far as shops, Bwana carries Bowtechs(and Hoyts). Not sure who does on the NW side of town.

      I didn't think so I will ask the dnr but the way it reads youth and archery are not restricted to zone and time
    • monstermoose78
      I could have been wrong but normally you had to pick a zone

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase
