    Absolutely. Silence is my number one prority over speed.

      Del's right they don't cost much and every little bit of suppression helps.

        I have a Hoyt bow that I hunt with. I have shot it without suppressers and with. The difference was amazing! I would never hunt without suppressers.

            I think limbsaver has the best string suppressors. And to answer your question, yes, they are worth it.

                You got to be kidding, you’re joking right

                You want your bow to sound like the screen door slamming at your Grandmother’s house!

                I’ve seen deer jump the string at 10 yards!

                    THEY ARE VERY MUCH WORTH IT.

                        I think they're generally worth it, though for a variety of reasons. They make most bows much quieter, and that's reason enough. They also do a lot to absorb vibration and deaden the felt-shock to your hand, which is also great.

                        But to me, here's the biggest advantage. I accidentally dry-fired my bow a couple of years ago. The string broke, and a couple of smaller bolts broke. But the rest of the bow was unharmed. I had the string-suppressor on my bow and I firmly believe that it absorbed enough of the shock that it saved my bow (minus the need for a new string and two small bolts).

                          I think horseman308 hit it, but I will say this (and I'm probably wrong) their importance is dimminishing as bow speeds increase. 10 years ago when I was getting about 100 fps less out of my bow I know the deer can jump the arrow but with 300+ FPS it becomes very hard for the deer to duck/jump the shot.
                          But yes I will take any advantage I can get when bow hunting. I think the best thing they do is take the vibration out of it. My Mathews is pretty quiet anyway.
