How long?

Do you keep your crossbow cocked while hunting. I'm reading that some say 4 hrs while others say all day.

Re: How long?

Only as long as I'm actively hunting. After that I ALWAYS shoot it down into a small target I keep in the truck.

Re: How long?

I usually decock if I leave the woods for lunch. I will leave it cocked all day if doing a long sit.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
