Merry Christmas first of all! Does anyone have much experience hunting with the Scott Hexx or Longhorn release and if so, which one seemed better for hunting?

I hunt with a Hexx and really like it. No problems at all with it, easy to hook the loop and pull back.I have not hunted with the longhorn.

I practiced with the hex to help with my Target panic, which with other mental tools has helped tremendously. And then I switched back to my Scott Mongoose trigger for pre-hunting practice and hunting and missed several deer. (Mostly TP again I think) and then switched back to the Hex for hunting and killed my last 2 deer :) I do worry about the tiny rubber band in the cold a little bit, but I put a fresh one on in December and keep the release in my pocket. I will hunt and practice with it for the foreseeable future.

How does the Hexx compare to a true hinge? I shoot the Longhorn Hunter and want to use a Hexx for my 80# bow a little easier to draw with a wrist strap. Using a thumb currently.

I hunt with the Hexx also. No problems at all. Love the Hexx for everything.

The click on the hex was loud enough to startle turkeys but the longhorn is quieter. The longhorn takes some getting used to, annoying to have a hinge hanging off your wrist banging into things.
That said, it's the longhorn for me last few seasons and the next few.
