Re: unloading a crossbow

Shoot it into a target. I keep a small layered type target in the back of my truck. I use an old arrow with a field point so my broadheads stay sharp.

Re: unloading a crossbow

Crossbows are a pain in the rear..You got to come out of the woods before dark and shoot it into a target from your vehicle..

Re: unloading a crossbow

With the excalibur you re-attach cocking rope. put foot in stirrup pull with one hand squeeze trigger of course remove arrow first ...real simple and quick no need for target or shooting bow

Come and try to take my guns!.you might meet my precious metal collection!

I do the same.

The older I get, the stronger gravity becomes.
