I was in Cabelas today to buy some fletching and the guys working there told me they will carry Hoyt's next week I asked if they were getting the Hawk line the said yes and the AM's, Katera's and could order anything in there line up. This suprised me as I thought Hoyt was proshop only or did I miss something. Either way just thought I'ld share.

I suppose you are right,but this is the beginning of the end for smaller pro shops that rely on protected lines.

That will be cool, however. Most people go to box stores to get the cheeper bows, at least I believe. Most of the bows that come out of the boxed stores are not set up as good as they would be at a pro shop. Plus, why? Most people from little towns use their local pro shops for their bows, why stiff the little guy??? Oh yeah, why not.

it will destroy the service aspect of a bow company. the box stores CANNOT compete with small shops who know what they are doing and how to properly setup, tune, and maintain a bow and most importantly how to take care of the customer! just my .02:tongue:

The number of people I meet with bows from Cabelas that do not fit them is astounding. Should the small pro shops go it will be a big blow to archery.

Scheels carries hoyt, and some even carry mathews. I still buy bows from the local shops because the price is pretty comparable. The shops will set the bow up for free, so that is worth the 20 I save at scheels.

Companies like Hoyt don't make decisions like this as a result of some guys standing around the water cooler shootin the breeze. They must have done some research and decided this is the way to go for them. Too bad for the little pro shop guys (or the big pro shop guys for that matter). Maybe they plan on just putting the hunting lineup in the box stores and keeping the target lineup and higher priced hunting bows in the pro shops.
You gotta wonder if Hoyt is doing this can the others be far behind? The name of the game is m-o-n-e-y so you can follow the money.
