In this episode of The Hunt Backcountry Podcast we speak with Matt Davis of Hoyt Archery and discuss what a bowhunter should look for when they’re selecting a new bow — from Hoyt or from any of the numerous other great bow manufacturers on the market.
We break down the anatomy of a bow and talk translate the technical specifications — such as speed ratings, brace heights, axle-to-axle length, etc. — and discuss how each one of these technical numbers should guide you in what you’re looking for from your next bow. Additionally, we break down numbers traits of the draw cycle and explain terms such as “valley”, let-off, and the “wall”.
Before we dive into that, we also have a brief chat about Matt’s role as Hoyt’s Pro Staff Manager and what a good industry Pro Staffer is and does.
