Loud Bow??

Recommended Posts

LuciandTim

Its been about three years since I shot and I feel like my bow is loud. If you can please watch the below video and let me know what you think.

Also, what can I do to make it quieter? What works and why?

Thanks!

LimbSaver and other similar companies have soooooo many products out there that claim to decrease the twang/vibration of your bow and I believe they absolutely help! I am currently shooting a Hoyt bow and as you may or may not know Hoyt has split limbs so i have the AlphaShox limb silencers to help out with unnecessary limb vibration. I also have a set of string leeches that seem to help. There are also sights, rests, quivers, and stabilizers on the market that will greatly reduce the amount of vibration during and after the shot.

Also, is your bow a little older? with all of the new dampening systems added on the newer bows nowadays seems to really quiet those bows up.

But, if your looking for a fairly easy fix to your noise problem I'd recomend buying a quality LimbSaver stabilizer, string leeches, and if you currently have one of those peep sights with the rubber hose connected to it, replace it! those hoses make soooo much noise!

P.S, It would also help if you posted up a picture of your bow so we could better get a idea of how to tune up your bow. laugh.gif

There are many things you can do to quiet your bow. First we need to know what kind of bow you have with what kind of silencing equipment on the bow. Do you have a peep aligner? I think those things make noise.

I have an STS, cat whiskers, limb savers, a s-coil, and shoot heavier arrows. All of those things help.

First thing I would do is to check and make sure that all your assc. that bolt on are tight. I had this problem and after checking all my add ons to make sure they were still bolted tight I took it to a pro shop. I needed a few parts that were wore out to be replaced.

LImb savers and such will help but may not be the only issue that you may have to deal with.

How about a pict of you shooting the bow.. So we can see what you already have in place to keep your bow quiet?

Actually I stripped the bow. All that is on it is the sights and the arrow rest. I guess my best bet would be to just bring it into the shop.

I guess my question is what has worked best for you? And how quiet can you get a bow to shoot??

I had a problem with noise a few years back and did the same thing you have done. Then, when I took off my arrow holder I found the problem. I had a noise out of arrow holder.

Could be maybe.

Taking off the string bats and putting on catwhiskers made a pretty big difference for me. Catwhiskers get rid of the twang much better. Shooting a heavier arrow makes your bow quieter too. The limbsavers and some stabilizers will take away vibration.

Most bows can be made pretty quiet if they are tuned, all components are tight and you have the proper silencing stuff.

I work for a few days here but as soon as I am done I am going to put everything back on the bow. I bought some new stuff from the shop and hope things quiet down a bit wink.gif

We'll see.....

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
