Drop away rest question....

What do you archers that have a drop away arrow rest do when you are in your stand and nock your arrow for hunting?

Do you manually adjust the drop away into the up position or just nock your arrow and let it pull up as you draw to shoot?


If you don`t stand behind our Troops,
Please feel free to stand in front of them....

Kind of confused on the question. I have a cable activated rest and I just draw and shoot....

Manually flip up the rest. I use an AAE DOA rest.

Using a QAD- have been for years. They recommend you pre-cock the rest before you draw. What you need to do is to shoot the bow with the rest pre-cocked, and shoot the bow without cocking the rest. If there is a difference (and there shouldn't be one), then make sure you sight in and do the same thing every time. Personally, I used to think it didn't matter, until the wind blew the arrow off the rest and then banged on the ladder stand all the way to the ground. Since then, it' is automatic, nock the arrow, cock the rest.

Wishing I was at camp!

I shoot a couple of ripcords and flip them up for arrow containment every shot, hunting or target. I wouldn't want the arrow to be outside the rest when I drew and me not see it because I had my eyes on the deer.

Sadly most of my life has been wasted, but the rest I spent hunting, fishing, and trapping...

I am getting a new rest for next season. Have a cable activated one that failed on me this season. Had a buck broadside at 10 yards and when I drew back the string pulled out of the clamp. Took it to my local bow shop the next day and he offered to serve it for me instead of using the clamp but I declined due to time limitations and having two of my young children with me. May look into a whisker biscuit. Like the idea of using something fail proof.
