Scott Little Goose Release Details
At a glance, the Little Goose has it all. Despite its small and compact design this release is packed with features. But let’s start with what is hands down the most sought after design specification when shopping for a solid release: being able to adjust the length. Not only did Scott Archery get it right in previous iterations of the Little Goose, but they have gone above and beyond by revamping their product to now include five holes for adjusting the length.
Modifiable length alone may seem like a huge selling point, but that’s just the beginning. The Little Goose also has adjustable trigger travel, an angled jaw designed with a contoured radius for maximum clearance, a sensitive hair-trigger, in-line single caliper pivoting head, and a single sear roller trigger design.
To top it all off, it has an interchangeable trigger with spring, straight, or swept options available. In this particular model you get the popular Mossy Oak camo pattern. This kind of customization at this price is what makes the Scott Little Goose one of the best selling and most in demand releases. It’s also what makes a difference in your groups and accuracy and, with enough practice, gets me within an inch of my mark at various distances.
