While opinions will vary, i tried about six diff. ones to find the one i liked the best. and all worked fine but my preference for hunting came down to the fletcher fletch hook release. I just couldn't find anything i didn't like about it. good luck..
The best release is the one that fits your hand and shooting style. Everyone is different, so you have to try several and find out what works best for you. Now with that being said, I personally have tried them all.(back tensions, thumb triggers, wrist straps, etc.) I have settled on the Carter Quickie Plus as my personal favorite for a hunting situation. Good luck.
I've shot them for years and I am currently shooting the Edge buckle. I have to say it is the smoothest release I have ever shot. I have also shot several scott's, truballs, fletchers, cobras and a few others I cannot remember and for me the Trufires always were better made and performed better. Just my opinion. Like everyone else said go to your proshop and shoot them all with your hunting setup and see which one feels the best. My only other advice would be to not skimp on price or quality. This is one of those items you never want to fail so make sure you get a good one.
