RE: Inclusion passed 4/3
thats up to the hunter whether or not he wants to carry it cocked or not. It is legal to, although the crossbow manufactures say that you can have it cocked but recommend not placing bolt in it until you are stationary. You can****one in a treestand if you have enough room to sit the stirup on the base of the stand and enough room to bring your hands from your knees to your chest. If you have a crank it wouldnt be a problem to****it back in any stand you can fit the xbow and yourself in. As for getting a second shot, you have a better chance of reloading a compound to get a second shot. First off, the noise a xbow lets out when its shot will most likely send the deer high tailing it out of there, second the motion needed to set the xbow down, recock it, or crank it (i believe the average crank and xbow needs 40 cranks to fully****it), retrieve an arrow from the quiver, and reloading it, is a lot of motion and noise to go through unseen or unheard.
