    In the short month since I received my Hoyt Buffalo from Three Rivers, I've done two 3D shoots and scored my first traditional kill ever with a nice spring turkey.

    The bow shoots as advertised. Fast, quiet, easy to be accurate ...... It just feels right in the hand.

    My bow is the 60", 45#, in wood finish. I find that a brace height of 8.25" works best for me with Beman MFX Classic 500 arrows.

    I had been using the Hoyt Dorado (also a fine shooting bow), but find the Buffalo to have a more traditional feel with close to the hand shelf and side plate.

    I find no downside to the bow.

    Really dissapointed in this purchase. Hoyt can and has done better. Very poor quality machine work on riser. Limb tips were very poorly shaped. The threaded bushing between the dovetail and the limb bolt on the Paralever limbs was loose on both the top and bottom limb resulting a bad and loud vibration or buzz. No way to tighten the bushings up either. 3Rivers service however was excellent as I exchanged this bow for a 17" Dalaa with short limbs. I'm happy with the Dalaa.

      Comments about Fred Eichler Signature Series BUFFALO™ Takedown Hoyt Recurve:

      I purchased a Hoyt Buffalo when they first came out & just couldnt get it quiet enough & I hated the quiver so I returned it to 3 rivers. Now a few yrs later I purchased another Hoyt buffalo. The bow arrived basicly set up all I had to do was make a few adjustments to the knocking point & braceheight as instructed in the included DVD. My arrows were soon flying perfectly. Still somewhat dissatisfied with the noise I swapped the stock string for a 8 strand SBD bowstring with wool puff silencers. The bow with a 9.5 gpp arrow is now quiet as my longbows.

      Service and delivery comments:

      My bow was delivered in 2 day's. which Is the service I have come to expect from 3 Rivers.

          Comments about Fred Eichler Signature Series BUFFALO™ Takedown Hoyt Recurve:

          Have used recurves and longbows exclusively for 20+ years. Wanted a first time takedown for ease of travel. Researched the Buffalo and took a shot on it (no pun intended). Set up is easy. Added string silencers and strung the bow. Used carbon shafts from my longbow set up and guestimated a nock point just to let a few arrows fly and stretch the strings. All I can say is awesome. Six shots at point of aim; straight and fast arrow flight. A little louder than my longbow but added speed is worthwhile. Bottom line is even without a proper tuning this bow shot perfect, is well built and although a bit pricey, it is worth every penny.

            Straight out of the box this bow was well worth the money after setting it up sent 6 arrows downrange 20 yards and had a 4 inch group and it hasn't let up since! I can't wait to take this bow out after turkey this spring.

              Comments about Fred Eichler Signature Series BUFFALO™ Takedown Hoyt Recurve:

              This recurve is extremely accurate and powerful. I have the 55# limbs and find the draw to be easy and smooth. I really like the minimal contact between the shelf and arrow. I think that adds to the accuracy and great power out-put when using the bow.

              I plan on taking this bow hunting once I install some string silencers on it.

              Service and delivery comments:

              3Rivers had excellent customer service and are very friendly. They were great and timely when I requested to adjust my order.

              Thanks 3Rivers for the helpful advice and service!

                after opening the box i fell in love with this bow, it has solid construction, comes with everything you need and is just beautiful. shooting wise it is a dream and where ever you point it thats where your arrow is going (assuming you are using the right arrows) i would recommend this bow to anyone who is looking to upgrade to a bow they wont need to replace.

                    3 Rivers, you guys are by far the most professional archery service around.

                      Excellent bow, nice and compact, easy to shoot. Read a lot about this bow before buying. Most people's concern is the cost, which I think can be steep, but if you like hoyt products and or the look it's worth it. Comes with everything you need to make it silent, string leech and calf hairs on riser. I would recommend getting a better string than the one it comes with.

                      One issue with paint on riser, does chip pretty easily from light scratches, not a huge issue but for those that are getting "black out" it maybe good to know.

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      Service was always excellent, recommendations on arrow's for my draw weight were spot on.
