Dang man, that sucks. Welp, when you hammer him next time it will be that much sweeter.

Just because it's bad-a** don't mean it's a good idea.

Well, that is a pretty good reason not shoot a release, isn't it? I have never forgotten my fingers.

Constipation has ruined many a good day. Not as many as stupidity, though.

Ditto OldBuck,
In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing.

Exactly Bowriter, when one becomes dependant on superfluous gear things like this are bound to happen.

I understand how he feels. It is sickening when you screw up an opportunity due to carelessness. I've done it too.

Practice with your fingers as well so this can be remedied!

I have not been able to sleep all night every time I closed my eyes I saw him. I can shoot fingers well just not with this setup.
My pack was not closed all the way ( drawstring backpack) and when I pulled into my driveway I ran over my spare release that had fallen out when loadin up.
When looking for my main release I found it right where I had my bow setting before I left home ( on the back of couch). I always keep it on my bow, but apparently when I grabbed the bow the Velcro on the release grabbed the couch. I am an idiot!!!!!!!!!
Just two weeks ago, I was in another hurry and set the bow on top of cab of truck when loading up and it rode a couple of miles to the store before I noticed. Got lucky that time but not last night.
i don't know what else to say, except "beep", "beep","son of a beep"!!
I can't be getting in a hurry anymore. This feeling just is not worth it.
I guess I did get lucky in one way, a clean wiff.

today's short axle to axle bows are difficult and painful to shoot with fingers.
