Choose the Right Traditional or Compound Bow Release for You
Though all bow releases from DICK'S Sporting Goods are well-made and can help stop inconsistencies in your aim, there are a few different styles to chose from. Here are some examples of the types of releases available:
- Archery Thumb Release: Popular with compound bows, these compact designs do not attach to your wrist. They are comfortable, simple to use and make it easy to time your release.
- Index Finger Trigger: Another great option, these releases feature a wrist cuff and allow you to release the arrow with a pull of a trigger, much like shooting a gun.
- Back Tension Release: Back tension releases offer a highly consistent release but can be more difficult to use. They fire by slowly rotating a hinge until it releases.
The wild can be unforgiving, muddy, wet and cold. Make sure you have a pair of reliable hunting boots from DICK'S Sporting Goods.
