I was wondering if it's a good or bad idea to leave a Bulldog 440 cocked for several hours or even a day when hunting? I guess my biggest concern with leaving cocked is if it is bad on the limbs or if I'll lose any of the power in the limbs over time?
You have nothing to worry about. I cock the bow before I climb the tree and let it down after I climb down. On some days during the rut this is all day long. I have no loss of speed or accuracy, this has been over the last 10 seasons.
