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!

    • You almost need to put a guy in his face and play the rest of the PK 4 on 3.
    • About time!!! Stalock on his way up...hope they play him soon.
    •   Tiger meat on a cracker is delicious.    Yes, "may". I don't have a link to his page and I haven't been to it in years so I have no idea.I'll admit that I'm more than likely wrong and just jaded from years of working in internet marketing but I'm not gullible enough to take the word of random internet peeps. Do you have a link to his page so I can verify?
    • Also check out "straw bale gardening".  
    •   My folks liked them.  The Hubbards are large and the flesh is quite thick.   Plants in late april is jumping the gun.  Liable to freeze, even with global warming.   reasonable chance of frost there until middle of may.  You want the dirt to be warm, so think of them like tomatoes or cucumbers.   seeds rot in cold soil.    frost kills plants
    • Speaking of desperate snowflakes...... check this out.   Can't wait for the hearings on Cspan.... Legogate.   Or maybe batgate....   (no I have no idea of the credibility of "heatstreet" so read at your own risk) (owned by dow jones, so part of the mainstream media at least sort of) https://heatst.com/politics/democrats-to-investigate-after-trump-official-makes-lego-batman-joke/  
    •   I doubt it.  Its hard to go back and even if you did most of the damage has already been done.  Besides it would be admitting failure, not many people like to do that and I've seen no evidence that ownership believes it did fail  Perhaps to them it didn't, with 2 sites they might be taking in more money now due to more ad spots to sell.  Although the question is longevity, do ad dollars start to suffer as users leave and content dwindles?  For awhile its not hard to pump up the stats and make the site look good to advertisers with number of visits and page views, etc.  However, if an advertiser looked at the site for themselves its easy to see all the sub forums that haven't had a new post in months or that most of the views and clicks are coming from threads with Trump in the title.   Forums as a whole are also LONG past their prime and are quickly fading out.  Facebook groups and other social media are taking over.  Why log into many different forums when you can simply log in to facebook and have everything right there along with all of your real world connections?  Advertisers are likely to be focusing more of their ad dollars on the platform as time goes by.

    • The pipeline being built is a good thing. Gutting regulation for the sake of gutting regulation is stupid - and that seems to be his tactic. Some regulations are necessary. The "illegal flow" had been declining for years; attributing the continuation of that arc to Trump isn't really sensible.
