The only SAFE way to let down a crossbow is to shoot it. DO NOT try and uncock it with the cocking aid....you will probably get hurt. Just carry an old arrow/bolt with you and shoot it into some soft ground, or if you have a target available that works too (obviously). Just make sure you have an arrow in it when you do it or it will be just like dry firing your compound.....bad things will happen! Ten Point is coming out with a bio degradable 2 piece arrow for just this purpose, I think they are filling orders now. It's made to be shot to let the crossbow down without ruining a good arrow and if you can't find it, it will break down quickly.
