Fingers to a release......

6 posts in this topic

I am not going to be hunting this year but plan on practing here again pretty soon, but am debating on going from the finger tab to a release. Does anyone have any suggestions? there seam to be sooo many out there, I see the ones that strap on your wrist, you can hold them in your hand ....Ugg.....

I have one that you has a buckle that goes around your wrist. I like it because you can always go in the same hole so you know it is consistent every time you put it on. It's made by TRU BALL but I can't remember the model number of it. I've only shot the ones that go around your wrist but I personally think they are better because you don't have to hold it in your hand at full draw, the pull is around your wrist and your hand/wrist doesn't get fatigued.

Shawny- grab your bow and get down to Gander in Forest lake.. and just try as many different releases as you can. You may find one you like!!! I know I have!

I totally agree with Dietz. Just go to a shop and try as many as you can. You will find one that it comfortable and fits your needs. There are so many in different price ranges and styles. Some are very adjustable and this can be important depending on how you like to shoot.

Try to go in the morning on weekends or early afternoon during the week. This is when I find the stores and archery shops less crowded. You can get more one-on-one attention from a salesman.

i will add; if yo have been shooting with fingers for a long time, think seriously about getting one with a strap. i had two guys make the switch to a release that you hold in your hand.they would come to full draw , and instinct would take over! yep! the would let go of the release ! for three weeks straight i had to take the wheels off and file down the chips and burrs so it wouldn't cut the string. grin.gif then they bought some with wrist straps. they love them.

I think i have a true-flite release which allows me to hold the trigger on the release and then let go to shoot, this has helped me out alot since i have made the switch from fingers to a release this year also.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
