So i got my first hand release and today a couble buddies and i were at the outdoor range. Well after a few hours it finally happened. I pulled my bow back and bam punched myself right in the nose/mouth. I will make sure the release is all the way locked for now on. Anyone else ever have this mishap?

Release

Never had it happen becausemy release was not on properly but have had it happen. Usually when I get a new release and I adjust the trigger I get the trigger to light and the release prematurally releases. No matter why it happens is friggen hurts.

I just bought a new bow on friday night. I also bought a thumb(back tension) release and I have never really used one before. I learned something about these releases on saturday morning. Your collar on your coat can touch off that release. I have the bruise under my eye to prove it. I walked into the house and my wife asked me who I was fighting with.Lol. It wasnt funny then, but I laugh about it now.

did it also

Been there, and it hurts. Drawing back with my first thumb release learning, I hit myself in the jaw. :mg:

Was seeing stars, thought I could muster the energy to pull the bow, got just a couple of inches and let it back down. Glad wife didn't see, or would never be able to live tha one down.
