Default Hoyt??

Hey guys and gals,

This is my first time posting on this forum. I really enjoy reading posts on this site. I have mainly been involved in waterfowl hunting, but I always find time each deer season to get out and bow hunt.


I have the opportunity to purchase a brand new UltraMag by Hoyt. I have not had the chance to shoot this bow, but I have a chance to order one from out of state. I have held this bow and like the size and weight. I am mainly going to be using this bow for hunting, and maybe one day if I find enough time 3D shooting. My question is, if you had this same opportunity would you take it or save your $$ for a newer model like a Mathews Switchback or Hoyt Protec? I get out 3-4 weekends a year to bowhunt. I just don't know if I am going to upgrade if I should go a little bigger or a Lot bigger? Thanks for all the help and again please feel free to share all opions.

JB

Hi Jeff,
I don't know much about the Ultramag, but I do know that Hoyt makes a great product, and you wouldn't be dissappointed with the quality.
If you can, find a pro shop that has one in stock, and try it out. Only you will be able to determine if it's the right bow for you. If you don't like the way it shoots or feels, then you've wasted your money.

Good luck, and let us know how you make out.

I have a hoyt Ultramag that I hunt and shoot 3d with. I really like the bow and I am getting good arrow speed. But like with any thing you have to try it out yourself like they say to each his own. Just because it feels good to me it might not to you. find a pro shop that has one try it out

Default Thanks!

Thanks guys! I appreciate the info and I will try to find a shop. I used to go to a local shop with my Dad and Brother growing up. My Dad got us started early. Since then it has closed down so I mostly have chain stores(Bass Pro, Dunns, etc...) I will try to find a shop where I can try them out. Thanks again,

JB

To find a local pro shop, go to hoyt.com mathewsinc.com and/or bowtecharchery.com. These all have dealer locators that you put in your zip code and it will find the closest dealer.

If you want to learn a little something about archery make a 4hr drive to Carter's Archery in St. Joseph, MO. Ask for Mike Carter and he'll make your spin with the amount archery knowledge he forgets while talking to you.
