Bernie's Can't punch would work well for target and for hunting. It will help you with your shot sequence and then by hunting season, it should be automatic.
YES!don't worry about what release you will hunt with. learn how to shoot correctly with a back tension release. When you learn how to execute a shot it is very easy to apply that to a good caliper.
This is exactly what I was thinking. It worked for me. The 2 Shot has the BEST trigger on the market. I think anyone who has ever shot one would agree. There are very few BESTS but IMHO, this release is one.Get yourself a carter 2 shot and have them put in a 7lb spring in it and learn to shoot it by just resting your finger with some pressure on the trigger and pulling straight back with your elbow like michael braden explains on his dvd.
This is exactly what I do. I shoot a Zenith Xcelplus and then hunt with the heavy spring 2 Shot. It is super sweet!YES!
After learning with a hinge release, move to a Carter 2 Shot for hunting. Best caliper for feel on the market. It has a bunch of sears so you feel no travel or draw weight. Just squeeze until it breaks.
The only way Bernie's Can't Punch can be punched is if you have it set with the triggers too close together. I have alot of experience with this release and I assure you that when I set it up, you're not punching it! You'll have to shoot it properly or it just won't go off!I have a 2 shot with HEAVY springs- it is the best thing since sliced bread to me for hunting. I hate to say it, but the can't punch CAN BE PUNCHED, it only magnifies the punch so that you not only miss when you punch, but you launch arrows 3 ft over the target and into the sheet metal buildinng behind it (not that it was me who did this or anything).
I know some dont see it, but being able to really lean hard on that trigger without it going off HELPS with getting over the TP. The 2 shot allows for this and you never feel any creep in the trigger at all.
