    Was talking with some buddies about companies no longer in business that wish still was. Satellite Archery was my go to broadhead back in the 90's until they were no longer around. They stood out more among others but just curious to hear from others on here different manufacturers not in business anymore but would like to see back in the game. Also, remember when serious companies had the AMMO seal to support archery and made you feel you were actually giving back to the sport if you supported these companies. Miss them days for sure.

    I remember Satellite broadheads. My father in law lived near the plant where they made the blades. He would get the blades in packs of 500 at a time. I don't think any of his son in laws bought broadheads for 10 years. They were good heads and flew very well.

    I used a product called Intensi-Fire (Apple Flavor) by Wildgame Innovations that the deer loved. We would buy 20 bags at a time. Why they stopped making it makes no sense.

    Never owned a Baker, my favorite was and still is Loggy Bayou. Hard to believe they're not around anymore. One of the most comfortable and easy to transport hang on treestands I owned.

    Speaking of old tree stand makers, how about the Loc-on stands. Some of the easiest stands to hang that ever was. As far as comfort goes, it would have been hard to beat the old tree lounge.

    Raise your hand if you owned a Golden Eagle Predator! That was my first compound, I got it for Christmas when I was 12, my dad bought it off my older brother. Had the built in sight on the riser , remember those metal pins you couldn't see in broad daylight, and had a NAP flipper rest on it lol! I thought that thing was the coolest rig ever until I could afford something else when I got older.

    Lots of companies that have come and gone through the years. Some good, some not so good.
    • Satellite
    • Golden Eagle (same company as Satellite if I recall)
    • Baker
    • Loc-On
    • Amacker (treestands)
    • Puckett's blood trailer
    • Check-It (sights)
    • Parker Bows
    • Loggy Bayou
    • Toxonics
    • Tree Lounge (original owner passed away and someone else is selling knock-offs now, but it's not the same)

    I definitely killed my first deer ever with a Golden Eagle Predator. Shooting Easton XX75 2315's, 5 inch AAE vanes and a Zwickey 2 blade broadhead. Probably using a Jim Fletcher release if memory serves and definitely an NAP flipper rest.
