So I'm new to archery and in talking to my buddy's guide service the guide recommended something called a kisser button. I looked it up and appears to be a good concept but the guy at the archery store does not recommended it. So I look to you folks for your experience, pros and cons, and recommendations.

I think most archers don't use one. Put one on and see how you like it, its all about feel and consistency.

A cheap and easy kisser button is a tied on knot for the corner of your mouth or tip of your nose. Costs pretty much nothing and easy to take off.

There are lots of way to build in checks for proper form. Find what works and then do that.

What kind of critter are you going for?

Eventually after I feel more confident about my abilities I will be chasing deer. I have found that I have some issues with being consistent with my anchor point.

your anchor points are the most important thing in your consistence.

some of these sports are
Ear lob, corner of your jaw bone, tip of your noise, your lips. the more anchor points you have the more consistency you will have

I have never uses one but like Matt said the less on my bow the better

Might cost you a few FPS, but there really isn't a dowsing to one. Try it and see if you like it. Personally, I found one unnecessary.
