It all began with a dream and a simple desire – create the best bowhunting and target archery equipment possible. When Earl Hoyt Sr. started his archery company in 1931, simple draw knives and wooden billets were the tools of the trade, but through all the years and all the advancements, three things have always been synonymous with the Hoyt brand – quality craftsmanship, innovative designs and passionate employees.
Since 1931, Hoyt has been an industry leader and a world-renowned brand in archery and bowhunting. The Hoyt family was responsible for innovating more new archery ideas than anyone in their era, and that trend continues today.
Since the sport of archery’s return to the Olympics in 1972 where Hoyt bows won both men’s and women’s gold and ignited Hoyt’s dominance on the Olympic stage, more medals have been won with Hoyt bows than all other bow manufacturers combined.
From its humble beginning in a small workshop in St. Louis, Missouri, to today’s world-class, 150,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Salt Lake City, Utah, Hoyt has been the world’s premier bowmaker. Just as in the past, today every Hoyt bow features a long list of technologies and innovations. We know that serious bowhunters and archers are different and demand equipment that will allow them to perform at the highest level whether in the woods or on the tournament line. No gimmicks. No shortcuts. Simply the best we know how to make.
The same principles and philosophies that the Hoyt Archery Company were founded on in 1931 flow stronger than ever through the company today. Hoyt’s nearly nine decades of industry-leading products and long-term stability is a testament to the commitment, dedication and passion of its employees. And as we look to the future, we’ll remain 100% committed to building the most innovative and technically advanced equipment for the most serious archers and bowhunters across the globe. We know who you are because we are one of you. Get Serious. Get Hoyt.
