Bob, I remember reading about it but don't remember what! Age, I guess. I will check on it and get back to you today or tomorrow.

Thanks for the welcome all.

I too have just been holding the bow but yes, it does get tiresome.

We had 80 two days but today was much nicer. Mostly in the 50's but did get into the low 60's late in the afternoon. We've lost a lot of leaves in the last 3 days. Getting harder to hide out there.

Naturally. I'll let you know if it happens again. I also was under the understanding that with the rope cocking device it would not cock off center. We'll keep trying.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm about to get ready to go out hunting. Good luck everyone and thanks!

The rope cocking aid will symmetrically cock your bow every time regardless. Interesting! I'm going to have to try this again. Naturally I assumed it was the arrow but shot it again using the crank. The arrow is fine. Now when I'm able, I will try the rope pull but will also mark the string first w...

Thanks and hello Ray. Believe it or not, it really isn't that bad shooting with the crankaroo on but it does seem to be a bit louder. Probably because it is so close to the ear when shooting. However, the idea of using a cordless drill may indeed become a necessity soon. I'll for sure keep that in m...

Thanks cdup. With my compound or recurve it seems I almost always hung the bow but always hung it in such a way that it caused mimimal moving to get the bow; actually less than if I had it on my lap. So far with the crossbow I've just held it but have been considering hanging it. I also have some pr...

Thanks Vixchix.


bstout, why do you say to not shoot the bow with the crank still attached? Will it do harm?

Greetings from Michigan

Hello all. Just signed up for the forum. Hope everyone is into hunting by now. Now if this weather would straighten up some... I live and hunt (archery and rifle) deer on our own property in central MI. This will actually be my first year with a crossbow. It is an Exomag. I do use the crank to cock ...
