I'm going to take my crossbow into the shop but wanted to touch base with experienced people here first. I haven't posted in a good long while because I was finishing my Master's degree and took off for all last season. I went up to prepare for the late season (I only hunt late season) and practice shooting and sighting in my bow. I was all ready and I found I could not cock the darn thing. Either I'm suddenly weak or there is something wrong with it! I could pull back about halfway up the rail, then no more. I've always been able to cock it myself in the past. I can swim a mile so I know my shoulders and back aren't in too bad a shape. I've searched around for what it could be but would love to hear any insight. I am a woman with shorter arms so it's always been a little hard to cock but this has never happened before!
