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!

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
