    Yea, mine does too. But when I'm in the stand I sometimes take it off if I have a deer approaching...you might forget to put it back on and then start lowering the xbow as you leave the stand....keep the bolt out of it when lowering and raising and when walking to and from your stand as well...just double safe.

    Putting the safety on is part of my battery, on the way down to undo the cocking aid my thumb clicks down the safety.

    First, a comment above about taking the safety off "If I hear deer approaching" is absurd (to me). The only time the safety should come off is when you are on target and ready to fire. Same for a gun. No ifs ands or buts about it. Sorry if this hurts any feelings but thats what I was taught as a kid growing up hunting. Small game, big game, cross bow, rifle--safety on. Secondly, is it possible if the guy had any type of first aid training or survival training (instincts) he may be alive? I am sure the initial shock of being shot is traumatic but you need to get that under control and get a belt or rope tied around that arm ASAP. Sad for him and his family. Hopefully this will be a lesson and save someones life on here. Stay safe out there.

    Which brand(s) do that? Mind doesn't.
    My Barnett's have auto safety....in fact the safety can't be disengaged unless the bolt is on the rail and fully seated against the string....the safety never comes off till a few seconds before I shoot while I'm on target with the but to my shoulder

    Lord make me fast and accurate,
    May my draw be smooth and unseen
    Let my aim be straight and my shot true,

    Grant me the skill to make the shots I can,
    The restraint to avoid those I can't,
    And the wisdom to know the difference,

    So that I may be blessed with the bounty you provide

    Amen
