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.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
