Over the summer me and my cousin worked around my grandpas scrapping aluminum, copper and stuff. Well he was gonna save up his money for a nice little truck. he had around 1000.00 after the 2 or 3 days of working. Well i bought his dads truck, and guess what he went out and bought.... A NEW hoyt bow, it totaled up to be 950.00 then he traded his browing in on it and got 100.00 knocked off. Hoyt isnt even classified as "The best bows" Mathews is, right? Im not putting him down or saying im good or anything. but when i was shooting bow with him, i could out shoot him easy, and he jumped up to a 1K bow already? i guess its really his choice, i mean one day he could have his own hunting show or something sponsored my mathews or hoyt. He is pretty good at hunting though. he has killed about 5 turkeys, 15-20 deer, 1000+ squirrles,rabbits, grouse... totaled. i have killed.. 1 turkey, 3 deer, and about 200 squirrle, rabbits, and grouse... he is going to be turning....17 this year and ill be turning 20 next year in aug. his is in jan. so, i guess he is the better hunter out of us. (but he does hunt almost every day of season, he lives on 40 acres.) and i live in town... that does make a diff there. would u guys spend 950.00 on a hoyt?
