I have used mine for two years to hunt. The only thing is you have to choose whether you want to hang the release on the string or keep it in your pocket, and wait until you need it. If you Hang it on the string, you have to be careful not to bump the trigger, or you will be 25 ft up without a release. I have never had it happen, but it has certainly crossed my mind when moving around. I have had no problems with it, and i don't plan on using anything else for a while.

I've been using my Stan Shootoff's for hunting the past 3 or 4 years. Love them!

I actually have 3 Stan Shootoff's so I can have my primary release and a backup in each hunting pack.

stans are hard to beat!
Completely agree

I thought my Carter Target 4 was the best release for me... until I shot a Stan Shootoff 4! Wouldnt hesitate to hunt with it

Best release on market and the only one I'd use for hunting.

The Shoot Off has been in my hunting pack for the past two years....it's more of a backup but it gets main trigger duty a good bit.

My main hunting release is the same one I shoot all year long...a Scott Mini Blackhole.

I just picked one up for target shooting and now plan on getting the black out for hunting. I think its the best release I have ever used.

Bought mine off ebay for $125. I see them go for that here on AT sometimes. I do recommend getting a large if you're going to cold weather hunt with gloves. I got a medium and I can only ware a thin glove, which is all I use anyway as i keep my hands in my pockets till it's time to grab the bow. The medium is a little snug with my Armortech liner gloves. I may go ahead and buy another one for hunting in a large.

Most people should get large. The medium is not quite big enough unless you have really small hands.

Do you shoot 4 finger or 3? I've got a 4 finger in beautiful condition I'm about to sell. I also have a 3 finger and have decided I like the 3 finger better so I think I'm going to sell the 4 finger and buy another 3 finger so I have a backup.
