Can I throw out a "hunch"?

I'm sure these bow companies pay royalties to the camo companies to be able to use their patterns.

So....if you create your own.....you cut out another mouth you've been feeding.....and thereby decrease your expeditures.

"My hunch".

Not a bad theory Jeff. Also, since Mathews only offers their bows in one pattern, why not make it something they don't have to pay for. I've seen the Lost pattern and I really can't tell the difference between it and AP. I wouldn't be surprised if there is still some licensing with Realtree the patterns are so close.

Like the hunch Jeff. Elite Archery has their own pattern (at least I think it is their original)

Thanks GMMAT,
I had the same hunch myself just wonder if there was anything more to it. I mean that pattern looks a lot like Realtree anyway.
