and not $800.00 bows either ! I just can't understand how the deer arn't jumping the string & the camo is old looking too !!! do these guys need some guidance or what ?? REALLY when I seen these deer pictures It kinda woke me up ! why do I get a new bow every year ? is marketing that dam good that I got sucked in ! thats it im keeping my katera for two years this time !

Hoyt did well making the Katera. That bow will harvest deer for a longtime. I dont have any idea why all buy news bows each year.

People shoot deer with stickbows... So whats the big deal? A Person could kill a deer with a spear if they really wanted to

I have a 2001 model,its still killin....Here is the trick,I take the noise technology and apply it to my old Bow...I have the newer Hoyt style split limb savers and a STS string stop...My bow is very quiet,it was never really a loud bow,it did have some string doing though...I have 7 kills with it and counting...

Todays tech and what I am looking for is a smooth drawing 70# bow with forgiveness and decent speed...

Elites new XLR is what I am buying next...

They want you to think your bow is outdated in one year,but its just not the case...Alot of guys go 3 or more years before they find another bow that appeals to them,some guys kill with it their done with it,time for a new one...

missed the point . every time I see a old bow first thing I thought of was wow that thing must be loud & slow ! never get a deer with that antic . just amazed on how out of touch I am on what hunting really is about ! not the year of the bow but how good of a hunter you are.

I'd buy a new bow once or twice a year if I could afford it. I just retired my "04" Hoyt Ultra Mag. This time I bought a Hoyt Vectrix from the top of last year's list, at this years price. I should be happy until I get to shoot some "09" models.

I know what you mean. I have been chastized by some of those "netsperts" for using my old Bear broadheads. I have even been called a slob hunter just for using them. I just wonder how many deer have been killed with those heads.

I usually trade/sell my bow after the end of the season if I kill a deer with it. I just like shooting a new bow, kinda like getting a lease vehicle.

I agree! I shoot the same bow all year, not just for hunting. By the end of the year I want to play with something else.

Default Old bows shot well

Picture says it all. I own a older Rival Pro and it still shoots great.

been hunting for 13 years with the same PSE Polaris that I got as my very first (and only) bow. I kill deer with it year after year- Almost always with pass through shots.

Time to change your signature DB. I've got an old 50lb Indian hanging in the back room from probably the early 80's. One day I plan on getting a new string for it, and shooting it traditional style and maybe taking a deer with it.

Myself I see no reason to get a new bow every year (other than the desire to own a new bow.....it's a free country ).
I'm on my third season with my Trykon.....I may get a new Hoyt next year, only because I don't like the cam the Trykon's came with.

The only reason I got a new (used) bow last year was because I gave my son the bow I've had for the last 9 years, my MQ1. Now he's killing with it. I figured I'll need a lower poundage bow eventually so I picked up the switchback with max 60 # draw. The switchback is a sweet setup but the MQ1 did just fine.
