Hoyt Shooters/Side mount STS?

8 posts in this topic

Anybody out there put the new STS side mount system on their hoyt?... I am thinking I want to do this, but always nice to hear from someone who has done it that it works like it says?

DD, I haven't seen the side mount- what's the scoop with that. I had an STS on my '05 Protech, but that was the original STS- mounted in the front just behind the stabilizer. How's the sidemount work?

Scooter--I think its pretty much the same system... But I wasn't interested in mounting off the front... Many of the STS systems are now rear mounted as new bows have a bushing for STS systems now... My bow being a 2005 model doesnt have the extra bushing... STS is now making a system for 2007 that mounts on bows like mine that uses one of the holes and mounts off the side of the bow.

scoots- do a google search for side mount STS and you will see what I am talking about.

Gotcha- I see. Mine mounted in front. Looks to be about the same deal though. Sorry, I'm no help in answering your question though.

Eye- string vibration... supposedly it quiets your bow quite a bit...

Sure made a difference on my last couple bows. Both were good without, but great with the STS.

      Just wondering why no more fishing reports/updates from lake of the woods tourism on this site? They still put one on LSF every week or so. On a side note was up to the lake last weekend for some maintenance to the cabin went for a walk down graceton beach toward zipple. Lots of debris on shore from melting ice. Picked up what we could, lots left.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
