Need a new release for bowhunting? Here’s what to consider

For my money, I’d argue that the most underrated piece of equipment in a bowhunter’s entire arsenal is his release. It’s definitely not a sexy gadget, and for many archers, it seems to be an afterthought.
It’s a lot easier to spend cold, hard cash on a flashy new sight or a new set of camo duds – maybe pick up a new trail cam or two. But at the end of the day, apart from maybe your arrow rest, the release in your hand is the piece of equipment most responsible for where your arrow ends up.
