Let someone else shoot it. Sometimes they sound a lot louder to the shooter than they really are. If your shooting indoors go outside the noise is louder at an indor range. Last of all find someone in your area that has been shooting a long time or take it to a bow shop and let them shoot it there might be a small issue with it.

First: Martin bows are loud.
Second: Seriously have someone else shoot it and listen to it. They are louder when you are shooting them.

The possibilty?? 50% they will or they won't.Not trying to be a smart*** but sound travels at around 1125 fps. The noiser the bow the more likely the deer might jump string. You need to pay close attention to the deers body language. A relaxed deer is less likely to jump string than one that is on edge.

Stick a video camera or your phone 20 yards next to a target and record yourself shooting. What sounds loud to you may be muffled 20 yards later! By all means don't shoot your camera or phone.
