I'm guessing your shooting a compound bow ? A release does aid in smoother shoots and most people including me use them but, you do not need it to shoot better, if you are shooting bare finger you might want to start with a shooting glove. The leather will give you a much smoother release than your fingers and saves on finger fatigue on multi shots when practice. If you deside to go with a release in most cases you'll want to add a D-loop to clip the release to, you don't need it either but it helps take the wear off the string. And also you might need to shortin your draw leigth up one inch because of what the D-loop and release add to your draw, another reason to consider the glove first.

I think most shooters will improve their groups with a release.

I cannot shoot accurarely with my fingers. I once walked along ways to my deer stand buried deep into the woods in some thicket, and once I got to my stand and sit down, I realized I forgot my release. lol. It wasnt too funny at the time. I just got down and walked all the way back to get release. I prolly ran every deer out of the woods. That's how important I think my release is.

If your in a bad strain pulling now you might want to just lower the poundage until you build your arm up to a stronger bow. Sure you only need to get it back once with a good clean shot but ya need to be able to pull it back clean and smooth as well and not be all over the stand grunting, straining, giving your self a hernia.

I started using a release 2 years ago and it really tightened those groups for me. Have a d-loop installed.

That same exact thing happened to me once, and will never happen again. I got out to the stand, a climber mind you. climbed all the way up to 20', got settled in and went to hook up and couldnt find my release. then I remembered putting it in my bow case. I had to climb down walk back about 600 yds to the truck and do everything all over again. now I carry a backup in my pack where it stays.
