A Hoyt is sexy no matter the weather!!
Was outside doing a little shooting. Set my bow down and thought, I need to take some pictures. Feel free to post up your setups if you like.
Does not have to be a Hoyt

I don't know about those rods just kidding.....
but that bow is pretty sweet....sooner or later I imagine that I may be shooting either an AE for field or Matrix
the pics look good though..... What kind of camera are you using?

Thanks guys. It is an outdated (by today's standards) Canon 10D
I do need to swap out the silver LD for a black or camo one though. Just one I had lying around when I got the bow. Just have not changed it. Shooting good so, I have left it.

Outdated or not it takes good pics and is still better then my little digi Sony.
Here are some pics of one of my target bows...I am shooting Katera XLs for target....this one will be my field bow once it's time to go outside....the other one I shot outdoors this past season will get indoor/3D duty once I get another sight.

Thanks guys....I absolutely love this bow. It may have moved to the top of my list to become my favorite bow of all times for target. I started shooting the other one I have just as something to play with because I had always been interested in trying one for target. So last spring I bought my buddies for like $325...I figured if it worked out great. If not I have a hunting bow that I like since it's camo.
Well...I set it up and went and shot a field round with ZERO marks and shot a handful of points below my avg...but my draw was long which I knew with the first arrow I shot on the practice range. Fixed that when I got home and went and shot another round the next day and shot my avg from the summer before with a PE. Then a couple weeks later I made a trek to NC for a weekend of lots of arrow flinging....didn't shoot well all weekend really but I still tied my personal best score....by the end of the summer I was shooting above my avg and destroyed my PB scores. Even when I would have an off day I was still shooting better scores then I was with the PE.
So with all of that love for the bow going on....I sold the PE I had and bought the black bow in the pictures....I actually got a great deal on that also. I found a shop that had it in the box....it had NEVER been shot and I got it for about 1/2 price The pics are from the 1st day I shot it at the range a couple months ago.....I shot my PB indoors of 58X the 1st time I shot the thing. Now I haven't hit it again this year yet....but I am avging right 54.5Xs this year so far...and haven't shot less then 52. I think my high with the PE was 51 or 52....I haven't shot more then that in YEARS....heck with the Martins I had I never could even bang out a 300 let a lone a 50+X round.
But this is the most comfortable bow I have ever shot, it fits me PERFECT...and I still haven't shot a bow that aims this well for me. Although the Alpha Elite I tested showed me that it would probably aim a touch better once I got it set up But I have 2 Katera XLs that I still don't have as much money in as I would buying a new AE so I won't be getting a new one any time soon.

I know exactly what you are saying. I do not get to shoot any field. Nearest place is 3 1/2 hours away. But I do shoot spots, 2D paper animals, pop ups, 3D and so on.
I feel the same way about this bow (AM35). For me, It fits me perfectly.

I shot a Carbon Element and a Carbon Matrix Plus earlier this year and I am sure the Element is going to be a big seller for Hoyt.
As far as the Matrix Plus goes? I think it just might be the best shooting bow I've ever had in my hands! At least for me

Hoyt Alphaelite sure is a nice bow. If I had Hornet money I would go buy one! Good to see we got some guys with lots of money here now.
Nice bows guys!

DB, You need to let me know when you are in this area again so we can knock a tater in the head and shoot the Bull! You'll find out I'm a PO Boy too!
I turned in my resignation to BowTech a couple of weeks ago. I just didn't care for the direction that the company has gone the last couple years.
I really am not a Fan of Short A to A bows with big cams and I prefer a little customer service when needed It's really a Shame! They were an awesome company at one time.
I am really looking at Hoyt & Maitland. I like the product and the people behind both.
