Anyone have a bow that is particularly quiet?
I've been thinking about getting back into archery and doing some digging as to a quiet bow. Mostly would be used for deer hunting here in southeast - the mature bucks are pretty jumpy (probably how they made it to maturity?!) and was thinking I could use all the help I could get as far as stealth goes. I know there are lots of add-ons and vibration dampners etc etc but if I'm starting at square one I'd like to start off right.
After some reading I found this article testing some recent compound bows that measured decibels among other traits.
Was already looking at some Hoyts and the Vector 32" has the compact size - and the low vibration/dBA that I would prefer. A little more spendy than I'd prefer but not more so than a decent rifle.
Any members laid eyes on this bow or shot one? I'll be in the lower48 in a few weeks and will likely have some good opportunities to check out some more bows and handle the Vector. Not in a rush to buy but already starting to think about next season!
