Pro Tips: Finding the Right Handheld Fit

In my opinion, a surprise release creates the most accurate results. That’s why I choose to shoot a back tension style release. A person can execute all different styles of releases (hinge, index strap, or thumb button) with true back tension, causing surprise releases. However, when choosing a new release, you’ll want to find one that fits very comfortably in your hand. Generally, a smaller hand will feel more comfortable with a smaller release. Consistency is very important part of ones shot, so pick the most comfortable releases and learn to shoot it the same—until you can reproduce the same feeling release over, and over, and over again.

Pro Tips: Setting Hunting Releases

Setting a release for hunting can be a fairly simple process. There are so many different releases out there and so many different ways to set them, but it all comes down to comfort. Being comfortable with a release to hunt with is just like being comfortable with a release to compete with, or even just practice with in your back yard. I personally use a Scott Longhorn Hunter in the woods and I set it as close to my tournament release as possible. That way my shot process stays as close to what I do all year round for benefits on both ends.

Pro Tips: Hunting Release Options

Over the years I have shot all different styles of releases for hunting. A few years ago, I began shooting the Scott Longhorn Hex, and fell in love with it. I’ve had great success with all different types of hunting releases, but the Hex keeps me honest when the moment I’ve been waiting all fall for finally comes. I spend most of my time practicing and competing with a hinge style release or a “back tension” and the Hex gives me the same feel of a hinge. The Hex is a mixture of a hinge style and a wrist strap release and is designed with a wrist strap with a rope lanyard that attaches to a pivot point on the release. This pivot point allows the release to be drawn without the worry of the release ever worry of a misfire or a bloody nose. This is exactly the style of release that I was looking for.

Switching to Handheld Releases

I started shooting a bow at the age of 16, and just like everyone in my town, started with a wrist strap release, as we were limited to the inventory that the local dealer offered (there were no BassPro, Cabela’s, Walmarts) no options for us to even try to play with a different style of release. I shot my first ASA in Roanoke,VA 25 years ago and that was when I was able to pick up my first hand held release at one of the vendors there. Now 25 years later, you can go to any sporting goods and they are everywhere.

Fellow Scott Archery Pro Staffer Kris Schaff and I fought hard, along with teammate Steve Anderson, during the preliminary matches and found ourselves shooting for gold in the finals on Saturday.
