I thought the crank models could take up the tension enough to let the off the trigger then just back crank them that means doing it in the dark and that wouldn't be fun but I didn't know you can't do it. I guess I'll just stay with the new plan and shoot the el cheepo bolts at the end of each day. Has anyone heard of Black Eagle arrows? Found them on line and price is not bad at all. I will use these to offload the bow.
