How to Safely Cock & Uncock Your Crossbow

I’ll be honest, when I first started dabbling with crossbows I was scared to death of them. I just knew the whole cocking and uncocking process would surely be the death of me or my child as we shot one of these horizontal bows in the yard or while hunting deer and turkeys. However after a little bit of research and some practice I came to realize that there was a very safe and proper way to do things when it came to cocking and uncocking a crossbow. Now I’ve come to rely on crossbows as the perfect option to get my kids in the woods and hunting with me during archery season, and have also taken a shine to bringing it along on a few of my hunts as well.
