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.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
