Bow releases help the archer using modern equipment to release the arrow smoothly. This leads to better accuracy. Additionally, making use of a mechanical bow release will deliver more consistent results than releasing the arrow with your fingers alone. If you use a high-speed bow for hunting or target practice, you’ll want a bow release. In fact, it’s difficult to find a modern design of bow made for finger shooting. Nearly all modern bows will use bow releases. When shopping for a bow release, you can pick between a wrist strap design or a grip design. Wrist strap bow releases spread the pressure throughout your wrist and forearm for easier draws when hunting. Grip models allow for finer adjustments, which makes them popular for target shooting.
