Hunt with Back tension?
« on: January 18, 2013, 12:21:31 PM »
So I've always shot a wrist trigger release and never have shot it properly. Always have punched the trigger.
So last night at our indoor league I shot back tension for the first time and think I am going to move to this for target shooting. But I was wondering if anyone shoots a back tension while hunting? or has input..

After my first year of hunting, I was hearing too many horror stories about punching the trigger, so I picked up a Whalen's Hooker and made the switch to back tension.  I liked it so much that I used it hunting and have never looked back.  I have had no issues using it and in a pinch, I can release it intentionally as well.

I've considered going to backtension as well and I have talked to guys who hunt with backtension.  Only argument I've heard is those split second opportunities where you have to get a shot off quick

I release every shot with back tension.....or at least try to. I use a thumb style release.

Yeah I'm going to try to shoot one all off season and see what I think.
