Cocking cb with safety on

I wasn't paying attention and cocked my Matrix 330 with the safety on. Will this harm the crossbow?
If not, this may be the way I do it from now on, since I will not need to worry about setting the safety after cocking.
Any advice is appreciated.
Thanks

Re: arctic shield

No experience with these, however, the Arctic Shield booty blankets (over boots) work well for me. They are occasionally on sale from Cabelas

Part 2 - NY hunt - success

Sunday morning got into the woods just at daylight and up in my stand. Super windy and cold. I can only see about 30 yards from this stand into some thick stuff where 3 trails come together. It was so windy, I'm thinking I will be getting down real soon but decided to stick it out. About 8:45 (time ...

Part 1 - NY hunt - rough start
