What's everyone's favorite release?
« on: August 17, 2017, 08:04:09 PM »
As the title states, I'm looking for a new release and wanted to see what people on here use, like, recommend, and wish they had.
The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.

 :yeah: for index releases you can't beat them.  My whole family shoots the Little Bitty Goose exclusively.

However, my go to hunting release is a Carter Target 3+ though.  I made the switch about 7 years ago and can't shoot index relaases anymore if I wanted to.

I also run with the little bitty goose.  I love having the flexible string attachment that i can tuck into my fist when crashing through brush or whatever, it helps keep it clean and trustworthy.  Always recommend buckle over velcro.

The Scott Little Bitty Goose for me as well.  Definitely go with the buckle over Velcro.  I have been using one for years and the only reason why I bought a second is because I lost my first one in the woods somewhere while doing the post shot thing on a buck.

I like the Scott Shark.  Dual jaw, adjustable for both tension of release and length.  Also is buckle setup so no velcro to make noise in the field

Am I missing the boat here? I see Goose, goose, goose.... I'm using the Scott Shark with the buckle and was thinking about picking up a Scott Rhino XT. Why would one choose a goose release is there a benefit?

Honestly I think that you get used to using what you buy and then love it and recommend it.  I find that across all of my sports that if you spend to a certain level most everything is pretty good equipment nowadays.  Doesn't really help the OP at all but in a way it does I guess.  Buy something of good quality and shoot away.

I just feel more confident with a single caliper release.  Doubles make me worry that it will let go through the crack, even though the rational side of me knows it won't.

So I was shopping years ago for a single caliper Scott release with a rope attachment and buckle and found a smoking deal on the itty bitty on ebay.  Loved it ever since, though the buckle is nearing the end of its life and will get replaced next year.

Another vote for little bitty goose. Been using mine for the last eleven yrs and it's still going strong. Love the buckle strap over Velcro.
