Fingers?

A story I wrote today made me think about this.  Anyone shoot with fingers anymore?  I switched to the release about 3 years ago.

When I first started bow

When I first started bow hunting, maybe 20 years ago, I did.  Only did it for a few years, then I moved to a release.  My Dad held out for alot longer though.  He seemed to like the feel of it versus using a release.

I held out for a long time

I held out for a long time thinking that bow hunting required the use of fingers.  Then I bought a bowtech bow with a short ATA and decided to bite the bullet and get a release.  I am glad it did because my accuracy and consistency has improved greatly.  Sure, I have to remember to bring the release, but for the confidence, distance and just improved accuracy it is worth it.  Plus it gives me another toy to buy

Fingers

I have not shot with a finger gaurd or finger tab since around 1986. I switched to a release when I was 17 in 1987 and never looked back. Big smile

Yeah, i guess I was just

Yeah, i guess I was just stubborn or something.  I would have started with a release but the guy that taught me about bow hunting didn't use one and recommended against one so I didn't.
