I know you can put an STS or silencers on a bow to stop the shooting noise, but what do you do about bow drawing noise ?

What kind of noise? Arrow dragging on the rest when you draw? Little squeaky noises? Cable slide chattering?

Heck, in my case just about every bone in my body creaks and groans when I draw.

Part of it is arrow dragging on the rest, but I think the cam or the wheel is making a grinding sort of noise too.

did you check the tightness of all screws?

no, I didn't

I didn't realize there were any screws on the cams and wheels to check

I will look and see

if its the CAT's, it might be the spacers or washers, had that on my bow, brought it to the dealer and he put on all new washers and spacers and it doesnt "click" or squeak when i draw

If the spacers are making noise most of the time you can just put a little lube or oil on them and that will get rid of any noise they might be making
