I shot this deer with the Hooker Release last fall during the rut in Wisconsin. It was a cold calm morning.I had a doe nearby bedded and blind called this deer into 12 yards. He never knew I was there. 145 5/8 inches and dressed weight of 226 pounds.

I shot this bear in MN at 18 yards. It dressed out at 383 lbs. It was 6' 2" long from nose to tail.
I would like to thank Mike and his great release and support with helping me harvest this great animal!!!

Jeffrey deJager Michigan

Jeffery has hunted with a recurve bow his entire life, some 40 plus years. After a shoulder injury Jeffrey had to purchase
his first compound bow in 2009 harvesting all these animals in his first year with a compound bow and the Hooker release!

Thanks for the great product. I must say that I have used your releases since the start! I shot this buck at 60 yards
and know for a fact that I would never have been able to keep it together with any other release out there. I used my 7/8 inch Hooker release with the wrist strap combo exclusively and love it!
It slows me down when the moment of truth comes around.
Once committed to the release you will be a better shot.... Period.
Thanks Mike!
