A lot of today’s archery-equipment catalogs just sort of sit there. The products are great but the catalogs are uninspired. Not so the 2010 catalog from Hoyt. It’s inspiring, even exciting. The photography is superb, and the copy is a hoot.
Take, for example, the headline used on the page introducing the new-for-2010 Hoyt AlphaBurner. That line reads “Because Hard-Hitting Speed Doesn’t Mean Jack If You Can’t Hit Anything.”

With the Badlands Sacrifice pack, you sacrifice nothing and gain an extremely light pack capable of venturing across the toughest terrain and through the most adverse conditions. High-load hunting packs tend to be a bit heavy, and sometimes even cumbersome. Badlands has revolutionized the hunting pack world with the introduction of the Sacrifice. This ultra-light pack weighs in at a mere 3.9 pounds with a comfortable internal-frame design. Sweat and discomfort are mitigated by the Sacrifice’s hypervent suspension. Well-known backcountry bowhunter Cameron Hanes teamed up with Badlands to design the pack, and his expertise has helped Badlands come up with a product that delivers the ultimate in lightweight durability.

Picking apart your shooting form and working on individual form elements will make you a better shot.
If you don’t have a buddy to practice with and to help critique your shooting form, consider videotaping yourself. Reviewing video footage of your practice sessions is a great way to analyze your own shooting form. Once you identify a weakness, you can use various practice drills to focus on any specific form element.

The bow, a new hot-rod model, was seriously fast. The mule deer buck, a tall and heavy 4x4, was just 45 yards away.
I’d been stalking the buck for over 40 minutes, utilizing the dark pines at timberline to mask my dawn approach. The buck was feeding unaware, and I was as close as I was going to get. My laser rangefinder confirmed the distance twice.

Businessmen and their companies are constantly striving for distinction. They all want to stand out for being better. But only some reach that goal. Only some not only discover but ascribe to the key.
To be better, to achieve more, you must not settle for doing only what is required, you must go above and beyond with everything—with products, with marketing, with advertising, with customer service, with it all. Only then will you achieve the ultimate distinction.
