I know nothing about a Bowtech as I have never shot one. I would be careful with the price of a used bow and be careful that one doesnt have to replace the string and cable. If a cam or string and cable need to be replaced, make sure you are buying it right. Also, make sure that the draw length fits you and if it does not to see how much adjusting one can do to change the draw without affecting the preformance of the bow.

I dont want to sound like I'm trying to talk you out of it but to be sure all is good with the bow before you purchase it and then have to spend a fair amount of money on it and find out just maybe it wasnt that good of a deal.

Good luck.

Alot of the shops I have talked to say that Bowtech's need to be tuned. Alot! Or one comment was that "they are not so fun to tune." I was looking at the Gaurdian, but the more I talk to people I'll stick to my HOYT.

I've owned two bowtech bows and i have never had any trouble with either. I am currently using the Bowtech Gaurdian and just love it. At 60 yrds. i'm in a two inch. group. But buying a used bow i would have it looked at by a tech to make sure the limbs are in good shape. From there if the price is right, yet you really have to be careful buying used bows.

I haven't shot that exact bow, but I've owned a couple Bowtechs and loved them. The statement above about them needing to be tuned a lot doesn't apply any more to Bowtech than it does any other brand.

I'd agree that it's a very good idea to have it checked out before you purchase it. Also, like H.L. alluded to- can you get it worked on if you have problems? Obviously, it's buyer beware on a used bow like that. However, it sounds like it could be a good deal.

I've been hunting with my Patriot for 6 years now, and this is all it can do.....

Sorry its just what I've heard. Where is the nearest Bowtech dealer that specializes in them? Elk River area.

Give me a couple more weeks. I had the big brother of the buck in my post, about 70 yards away this weekend. Hopefully I can chalk up another monster with my old, hard to tune Patriot. wink.gif Honestly, I've never had any problems tuning my bow. The only thing that threw me, for a short time anyway, was when the moleskin on the plunger of my trophy taker rest wore off, and I couldn't figure out why I was shooting low. It took me a good half hour of checking screw tightness, shooting arrows and just looking at my entire bow to actually look at the rest plunger. As far as shops, Bwana carries Bowtechs(and Hoyts). Not sure who does on the NW side of town.

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
