    Just wanted to pass along there is a Conquest w/limbs on eBay right now. They claim it is from Earl Hoyt's estate. I don't know if it's true, but as a long time Conquest owner myself, I thought I would mention it here in case someone is interested. (I have no affiliation with the seller...

    Anybody know of any books or other info on Earl? The more I learn the more interested I am in the man. I always considered Hoyt to be one of the leaders in archery and am learning more and more that there is good reason for that.
