My son purchased one this summer and used it this fall. very happy with the performance and he also scored on four deer.

I di believe I will be upgrading my Matthews next summer.

I shoot one. I've had it since March and am very happy with it. Quick, light and very smooth. I'm sure the graduate would be very happy to have one.

It is a very nice bow. lot of people love them. Last summer i bought a new bow, very tough decision. long story short, i chose the hoyt because i didn't like the grip on the drenalin.

I didn't either at first. Took awhile to get used to but I don't mind it at all now. I love the grips on the Bowtechs. Narrow.

Hey Cat - You reside in Crosslake? Last weekend I was up there was 10-11" now after the 2nd wave I'm hearing 20". Any truth to that???

Might have to put the bow away and get the feeder going.

after reading things online and talking to a few pro's i found out the grip is molded to be comfortable at full draw giving in a better point of pivot after arrows is released resulting in better shots, many bows are changing grips now, finding that it does influence the shot

i'd say 14-16" after a couple days of settling, I'm not puttin my bow away until the 31st.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
