Just got my hoyt katera and compared to my high country, im already shooting better groups. i think its due to the 75% let off and the smoothness of the shot, no vibration or "jumping" effect at all, bow hardly moves after the shot. Plus it has a IBO speed of 330 fps and i have it shooting at 317, plenty fast for me [;)]

Awesome news! Congratulations on the new bow, and I`ve heard Hoyt makes a great one.

Me and a couple friends shoot a 3-D course about every 2 weeks. Thanks to gas prices. Probably the best practice you can get. Estimate the distance and let the arrow fly. If you're wrong you'll know in a second or two. Gives you some excersize aslo. They are allot of fun go in the mornings if possibly it's cooler and bring bug spray. Been lacking on the daily practice the girlfriend thinks I need to get the house fixed up or something like that. Going to the Rinehart 100 in september can't wait to smoke a giraffe and all the other neat targets they have.

The Hoyts are some of the best bows made. If you are shooting 317 out of it accurately you should excel at all forms of archery, just dont shoot ASA cause they max at 280fps

ya i agree its good to change it up a bit, but im only shooting out to 60 yard.
anyways its lookin good, im dead on out to 60. When you add in the shake factor i will only shoot a deer out to 50 though.

I was shooting excellent , tight groups, out to 20 yards. Shooting 6 days a week. Then with a week to opening day I shoot and every group is low and right. (I'm Left handed). I would just move my sight pin, but my pin is at the lowest it will go in it bracket. I'm not sure what happened to cause the low groups. I had been shoot great all summer. Now I'm freaking out with only 5 days left to season and I have a summer pattern on some bucks!

Thanks Woods Walker I didn't even think about me holding my elbow too high. When I fling a few today I will be definately keeping your advice in mind.
