I was hunting yesterday (NY) and, after climbing and getting settled in, drew the bow. I think we all do this. Well, off it went without me touching the trigger! I hooked onto the string and partially drew it several times...ok. Then, to put full poundage on it, I loaded another arrow for a full draw...pointing at the ground. Off it went. Time to go home...after retrieving both arrows.
I have a Fletchunter release...which I love. At home, I drew a couple feet from my block target...after a few tries it went off again. Now, the sensitivity hasn't been adjusted in at least a few years so I didn't think proper adjustment was the issue. I put some alcohol in a cup and swished and flushed the release well. I was surprised at the amount of dirt that came out! And those familiar with a Fletchunter know that there isn't really much to them, far less than most releases. After flushing I shot numerous times and all was fine. Just a heads up that cleaning your release like this once a year may not be a bad idea. Even after that...being a bit paranoid...I lessened the sensitivity just a tad!
