Arrow rest on compound bow

I'm new to compound bows and I have a browning compound that I picked up on Ebay. I'm putting a Hostage full capture rest on it.

The only way I have found to mount it is to put the rest to the rear of the bow closest to the string. It seems like it should go on the other side of the bow at the point farthest out to provide the most support at the beginning of the flight and support to the rear of the arrow longest in the flight path.

Which is it and why?

At full draw the arrow tip or broadhead should be just in front of the rest so there is no support issue. Mount it closer to the string side, Why? Because that is how it was designed to be used. I would highly recommend you find someone that knows bows to help you get the bow "Properly" set up for you. Things such as draw length, proper arrow length, proper arrow spine for the bow and if you want to shoot finger style or use a release. ( Finger style is faster to draw and shoot but using a release is much more accurate.)
