If you can shoot consistently accurate and comfortable, go for it. But if you can't, use them because its not worth wounding animals and not being able to recover them.

I see guys come in every once in a while shooting their bare bone bows and not hitting squat at any target 10-50 yards. I don't know their circumstances (money, knowledge... etc?) so I really don't suggest anything to them. But if those guys are going out to the woods with their setups they definately have a lower chance of a clean shot.

Yep very true, but it takes only a certain level of accuracy to kill animals... If he is profficient enough to shoot 6" groups out to 40 I'd say that's good enough

Yes thats true too but when you use your fingers you cant imitate the same realease every time.
When you use a realease it releases the arrow exactly the same every time.
Thats all I meant.

Default You can do anything

like that your little heart desires. But I wouldn't spend a dime on a compound bow and not use a release.
And my shoulders wouldn't have been worth a dime today, if I never used a release.
