How long can i keep my crossbow cocked?

Why does my crossbow shoot high or low?
If you are using field points, you can simply adjust the sights to correct the problem. If you are using broadheads the blades of the broadhead may be catching air as they fly. This problem is only correctable by using a different type or brand of broadhead.
Why are some broadheads inaccurate?
The design of some broadheads is not conducive to accurate shooting with a crossbow. Some broadheads have an extremely large surface area, blade shape, or other design characteristics that do not fly well. If the broadheads have too much surface area or a very large cutting diameter, they will catch air in flight and may move off target. Do not use fixed-blade broadheads with a maximum diameter greater than 1 5/8”. Use only mechanical broadheads rated for crossbows. Premature blade opening can deflect the arrow in an unintended direction and damage the Ravin Crossbow.
