My wife and I are getting into hunting with crossbows and I have a question for those with experience. I bought a crossbow for the Mrs that has a crank cocking device to help her out. I bought same model crossbow without a crank cocking device for myself. I have heard that it is better to use a rope cocking device rather than just using my hands. I read online that cocking with bare hands can actually effect accuracy. With the amount of wisdom on the HPA site I thought I would ask those in the know.
