Project Katera – Part 1

I was interested in trying out a new bow, but not this year! Then, I came across a classified posting on Bowcast.com for a 2008 Hoyt Katera – 26.5″ draw, 70-80lb limbs, G5 Expert II Rest, Fuse Factory Strings and a brand new set of G5 Matreo Bow Strings.

So, I conversed with Aneal to get some additional information on the bow. I took the Hoyt plunge and another project was on my plate for the season. This needed to be done pretty quick, if I wanted to be proficient and confident in the bow for this upcoming hunting season.

The first thing I did was purchase a set of 27″ cams, took the factory strings off and installed the G5 Matreo Bow Strings. I figured I would shoot the bare bow 150-200 times to allow the strings, cable to stretch and seat. This is where my “schedule” got delayed. Only after 75 shots, my peep was almost 180* out! I have never had this happen on a set of strings before. So, I continued to shoot it by eyeing on the side of the peep. I shot the bow another 75 shots and the peep only turned another10* or so.

But, this was enough for me to make a change the strings.

Don’t be Cam Shy!

 Elite Archery

The Elite Archery line is an incredible bow line that most archers are unaware of as they do not mass advertise; they only do it by word of mouth. I have my sights on an older Aigil or a new GT500 for next season.

This was a great interview, with one of the best bow engineers in the world. Some of you may know who Kevin is and some of you may not. But, after listening to this podcast, you will know he definitely knows what he is doing.


Do you know the how and why a cam works on your bow? Do different draw lengths mean different string lengths? What does a hot rod engine have to do with a compound bow cam? Anthony and Aneal are joined by Kevin Strother, who is a bow designer and consultant to Elite Archery. Kevin shares his over 25 years of experience designing bows and cams to answer some very common questions about how our bows really work for us (and sometimes against us!). He also reviews the 2009 Elite Archery lineup and covers the differences in each bow and what went into each individual design.

Monsen Mountain Mashers

I found this useful little recipe that I found on BowCast. They are a great little pick me up when you need one on the mountain. They don’t require any special storage.  It doesn’t matter if they get mashed.  They are not that bad for you and best of all they taste great and are less filling…Wait, isn’t that a beer?

But it is approximately:

  • 3 cups powdered milk
  • 1/2 cup ground flax seed
  • 1/2 cup ground wheat germ
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1-1 1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 1-1 1/2 cups honey
