You'll kick yourself in the wazoo if you stumble upon a real shooter on the way to your stand. I did several years ago and since have never left the truck without cocking my crossbow.

I leave my cocking rope attached to the bow in the cocking position. That way, there is no way to leave it behind. I see no need to carry it cocked through the dark woods on the way to the stand. But, I will cock it at the base of the tree or as soon as I settle into my stand. I have learned how to cock it in the tree although its not easy. I will uncock it after I return to my truck just in case I see something on the way out. I can't imagine waiting to see a deer before cocking it. The deer would be looking at me in the tree laughing his rump off.

Do you guys take anything with you to shoot into to un-cock? or do you just fire into the ground?

I see some of you un-cock by hand. I would almost be afraid to try my Parker.

Before someone says it, I mean if you do not see a deer or at least a shooter, how do you un-cock lol figured someone would say "Into a Deer!"

I personally bought one of the decocking arrows. It is like a regular arrow but has a rubber tip.

Never seen one of those. Guessing you just shoot it into the ground?

I use an old arrow with a field tip on it and fire into the ground once finished my hunt.

Typically, I shoot at my target when I get home. This way it gets an accuracy check after every every hunt. I suppose if I was not coming home or was far from home, I would take my target with me or shoot a tree with a field tip. I always seemed to hit a rock shooting into the ground and break my bolt.
