No I didn't. I bought my bow down in White Bear Lake area... I now own 4 hoyts. The reflex is designed by hoyt.. However, I am sure you already knew this. Your bow new retailed for about $300.... so $200 is really not a bad deal!

As for what your bow will need after you buy it... Please be sure it truely fits you.. talk to the teck and make sure it fits well.. a good fitting bow is more important than the bows quality in my opinion!

I thin kyou will need a stabilizer, Sight, string silencers, peep sight maybe, case of coarse, arrows, a release.. ect..

With all that being said.. you can shoot fingers and without sights, its really all up to the shooter. I think that if you plan on hunting with this set up, you just need to practice with the gear you plan to hunt with. We all owe it to the animal for a quick clean kill, or at least we owe the animal our attempt at that!

Not a problem, glad I was able to help out. I havn't even taken my bow out of storage yet.. I am ashamed to say.. by this time last year I was way better off... too much fishing stuff going on right now!

Best of luck with the new bow!

My buddy just bought a bow off ebay a while back. He was measured by someone at Cabelas previously. Well he ended up buying a new cam to get it to fit him right, so dont have Cabelas measure you....lol.

I have a Reflex Buckskin. This bow is awesome. Split limb cam 1/2 technology. I really like it. Its pretty fast and super quiet. I bought mine in Fargo, ND from "The Outdoorsmen"

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks
