Does anyone hunt with a clicker on their bow? I just purchased the crick it clicker but haven’t installed it yet but am excited to use it in hopes that it will help me with some target panic issues. Would love to hear about anyone’s input about experience with their clickers.

I did last spring on my bear hunt, but had it quieted down with quite a bit of tape. It is a bit of a pain and seemed to get tangled in everything but I do shoot better with one on. No issues.

Yes. But I haven't shot at anything alive with it yet.

I replace the chain and string with D loop material. It doesn't get tangled any with the D loop material. I don't quite mine down at all and have killed over 10 deer with it the last 3 years.

Very sporting of you to give the deer a "heads up" before you shoot.

I'm not that polite.

Get rid of the chain like DW said. Keep wrapping electrical tape to deaden the click. It will feel like a thump more than a click when you get it right. The clicker brought me back to my love of traditional archery. I had put the bow down for years because of TP. Thanks to the click i'm back. Good luck!!

I replace the chain with braided decoy cord and deaden the click with electrical tape a bit. I've had no issues over the last 8 yrs.

I used liquid rubber on it to totally quiet the click. Been using the clicker since I bought my bow in 1991 and never had an issue of a deer hearing the click, and I know I hit full draw every time

I think there's two brands of clickers, is there a favorite the hunters like,,,,, seems after my shoulder surgery which was my drawing arm shoulder I am creeping and not really having a solid anchor, there is no pain but I noticed even doing other things I did with my arm pre-surgery is not as precise now..

I think I really need to try one of these.

Tajue there are really only two brands
of clickers. I’ve used them both and don’t prefer one over the other. They both work fine.
