Hello
Over the past couple years due to a medical issue (diabetic neupopathy) it is very hard for me to draw my bow back and I am not able to hold my bow back for more than a second or two even had it slip out of my hands due to the numbness. Two years ago I reduced the draw weight to minimum levels and had a difficult time so didnt hunt. Last year I tried but it was worse than the year before this year its almost impossible. Its either find another way or no longer bow hunt. My question is what is required to get a permit to use a crossbow I looked on the web site but it didn't explain much. Im not sure this will all work out. Im not sure whats even involved in cocking back a crossbow or if that will work either there are many other issues to over come also but this will be a start
Thanks
george

not required anymore,

you can get a rope cocker that reduces the poundage by about 50% or get a crank cocking device for $100 or so depending on the crossbow.

You will most likely need a crank cocking device. Ten Point, Darton and Excalibur make good cranks. Most of the cranks require about 6 lbs effort. You can give me a call and discuss your needs. I'll help in any way I can.

Don't give up just yet. We have new crossbows starting at $249
The best cranking devices come on the top end bows, but I can help you find something in your price range.
