Opened up my bow case today for the first time in 3 years. Last time I put it away the sights were way off which was why I put it away in the first place. Prior to that it, I had shot it very accurately for two years. It is a mid 90's Hoyt FastFlite that now has a broken string as well. Anyone know the approximate cost of restringing and sighting services at West Houston Archery? I'm not a bow guy, and I'm sure there are a ton of variables that I haven't provided, mostly because I don't know what those are. (Like I said, not a bow guy but I wanna learn). I just wanna know if it's worth it to have those services performed or if I should salvage all the parts I can from it and look into a new bow.

A new bowstring isn't that expensive, if you're just wanting to give archery another try get it restrung, if you know you want to bow hunt and have a little extra folding money, sell what you can and buy a newer more efficient bow

Yes to both. I want to give archery another try because the lease we got on this year is antlerless by archery only. I'll try giving this one new life for this year and see how I do I guess.

String it and hunt with it, if you feel like you're going to stick to bow hunting from now on, buy you a new one next year!

String it up no need to buy a new bow I promise the deer don't know if it's 2015 or 1995 model. I honestly have never heard of sighting services. I assume you mean someone to help you move the sites as you shoot it but either way get it strung and start shooting.
