What does everyone use for a hunting release. Haven't been able to settle on one post pics and reasons for your release need ideas what to try next.

Don't have pics at the moment but I went from a Scott Shark to a Tru Fire Chicken Wing Last year and it improved my shooting alot.

I like both my Cater Insatiable and Just B-Cuz thumb activated releases.
Hang either one on the D-Loop and you're at the ready for hunting. :thumbs_up

Why not just skip all the hassle and go with the best, Stan Shootoff (curved) or SX (straight) sooner or later you are going to get there anyway!

I really like my TruFire chicken wing with short trigger. I may get the new improved Truball Copperhead this year

I love my trufire hardcore max. Comfortable strap, head swivels on a bearing, release body has 1" length adjustment, the trigger is adjustable for pressure and travel. I've found nothing I don't like about it.

Truball max pro. Hit up your dealer and shoot what hits your fancy and see which one picks you.

Been shooting a Scott Silverhorn for quite a few years. Love it. I have a second for a backup in my pack!

Personally I don't like a thumb release for hunting because for me it's much easier to pull the weight with a wrist strap. Plus I guess since I have been using one for so long and I'm a competitive firearms shooter the trigger just feels like I have better control over the shot. Last since they are attached to your wrist they are handy & not in the way, don't flop around or you don't drop them.

No right or wrong you just need to do what works best for you and try a few.

I use a Spot Hogg Whippersnapper 3 finger open. I looped a bit of cord thru the handle and ta-da... a wrist strap. I like it 'cause- having shot fingers for 30 years- I draw better with a hand-held and the open jaw means I can put it on or take it off whenever I want w/out an annoying game-spooking "click".

I'm a spot 'n stalk mule deer/elk hunter. I rarely sit in tree stands or blinds for longer than a couple of hours.

You might want to try the Carter 2 Shot. Solid, good feel, wide trigger, helps when using back tension, perfect for use with gloves on cold days.
