I would look into this more. I thought you had to bet a bowtech FROM a shop in person. Their waranty is void if ordered over the internet.

Huntersfriend.com sells them as well as others. However, there is a shortage of Assassins so close to season openers nationwide. E-Bay has a handful being sold by legitimate shops as well. Just don't expect to see retail as they know demand is high.

Bowtech is not quite a stringent as Mathews is. However, Bowtech holds their dealers to sell within a tight margin. An RAK Assassin should cost you $599 in New York and the same in Florida. You may see a slight $20 difference but $599 is your sweet spot for the bow.

PM me and I can lead you to a dealer that will ship to you. He is a legitimate Bowtech dealer and has a Black Ops and Treestand camo in stock.

I have one for sale, I bought it Aug 2nd and I love it but decided I'de rather have a target bow. Its not registered yet so will still have warinty, I think. I.ve put about 500 arrows through it. I paid $599. for it will sell it for $499.

It shoots great, so good in fact I place in a local 5 spot torni and it got me hooked and I'd just rather do that. Gona buy a strictly target bow.

you REALLY need to look into this. If there is a dealer within 30 mile hunterfriend CANNOT sell it to you. I know this as a fact for, I am in the process of trying to get around this. So far I have to talk to bowtech direct and see what they say. Plus bowtechs website says they do not waranty bows bought over the internet. I believe hunters friend has a special arrangement with them but yet again, LOOK INTO IT YOURSELF. do you really want to buy a new bow and find out it has no waranty

Considering that Bowtech is a pro shop line, and there are not alot of pro shops left....many of us live quite a ways from a Bowtech dealer. Huntersfriend has sold me a Bowtech before without questioning where I lived or the nearest dealer. Also, if he were to tell them that he will not shop at his nearest pro shop because of a previous bad experience, I seriously doubt niether Bowtech or Huntersfriend is going to lose a potential customer.

i hope your right. as I said as of right now huntersfriend told me that they have to refer me to my local dealer. he gave me a number and name @ bowtech to see if they could give me an exemption. As of right now (I only called and e-mailed earlier today) no word from bowtech. i will again adamently suggest that anyone look into if thay have a dealer in their area.

What did you email them?
I don't qualify for the Bowtech for Boonies program. I really want the Bowtech Assassin Ready-To-Hunt package from Hunter's Friend. Hunter's Friend told me to ask for an exemption.
I wanted to know what you emailed Bowtech to let you buy the bow online?

I can tell you what bowtech told me and that was if I lived within the milage (30 miles as the crowflies to nearest dealer) that they COULD NOT give me an exemption and I had to go to a dealer. I explained how I had problems with this dealer and they said to go to a different one as there was a second one an hour from me.

I think you should ask to speak with a manager at bowtech if thats the case. I have a proshop bowtech dealer not 5 miles from me, and I bought my bowtech from huntersfriend! Never came up as for if there was a dealer near me. Great place to deal with.

Talked to huntersfriend.com today, I qualified for the bowtech for boonies program but said they were out of right handed 70# assassins and won't have any until 2013. I dunno what's up with that.

even if it's not registered BowTech won't honor the warranty. It has to be returned to pro dealer with the original receipt. Don't get duped.
