Well, hurry up and get him to the shop and get the bow set up with another rest. And buy a better release this time. He'll probably be a little gun shy but needs to get back in the saddle again. Any stitches in the forehead? Should be Ok. I don't even know the guy but can say this is the only time a head shot is acceptable with a bow. LOL. Wish him well for me.

There's the perfect reason you are supposed to check your equipment. Had to be showing some kind of weakness. Hope he is alright though, get him a decent release and put down the poundage for awhile.
