8 posts in this topic

I live in Maple Grove can anyone recommend me to a good Hoyt dealer near me? Has anyone been to Archery Specialist? I'm also looking for someone who is willing to take a trade in or help sell my old one.

The guy at Archery specialist knows his stuff, he rubs some folks the wrong way, but he does good work at a decent price. Capra's has a few Hoyt's, but not much for lefties when I was looking. I ended up buying my Katera from Archery Country in St. Cloud. It was a bit of a drive, but they had a huge selection of Hoyts, including a left handed Katera XL in stock with a 29" draw. If you want to travel a bit, Schaffer performance archery in Burnsville has a great shop. John is probably the most knowlegeable technician in the twin cities (and probably still the best shot). If you were looking for a Matthews I'd definitely steer you to Schaffer, but his Hoyt selection has been a little thin in recent years.

I got my Ross from Archery Specialist a couple years ago. Brian knows his stuff, and will work with you to get you shooting well but is a little opinionated. Doesn't bother me since he knows what he is talking about.

Since he is so close I'd go there or Cabin Fever in Victoria. They had a few of the newer Hoyts a couple weekds ago when I was in.

Brian at Archery Specialists is an interesting guy. He's pretty cocky, but he's earned the right. He really knows his stuff. That bothers some people.

He used to work at Cabin Fever but he struck out and started his own place.

If you don't like him head down to Victoria. Jeff, Neil and the guys at Cabin Fever will get you set up right. That's where I get all my work done.

I have to go with bwana. them guys set my bow, and my fiances bow in a clamp, got out the lasers and square, tweaked everything around, and was absolutely perfect on paper tuning. the first time around. no further adjustments needed! i shoot blazers, and my fiance shoots 4" feathers. her holes looked like they came from a pencil. the feathers laid flat to the shaft going through the paper, and didn't tear a thing, other than the "bullet hole" You almost have to applaud them!

    • Except for the fact that to Hillary Minneapolis/ St Paul is rural fly over territory. Outstate doesn't even exist and I would rather that rural areas are left to make their own choices rather than have what they do be dictated by the Capital.    If you ever ran a small city hall and saw the additional dollars it takes to do an infrastructure project with the USDA involved you might think a bit differently about all the " help" big government provides. 
    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
