    Ok. So im looking for a crossbow but I don't know what I am capable of when it comes to the pulling(or the cocking). So how many pounds can an average sized man pull on a crossbow.

        It raelly doesn;t matter how much you can pull. Most archery stores have a rope cocker for around $30.00 that cuts pull poundage in half. I use one on my Horton and I can only pull about 80#. For an even pull on the string, a cocker is recomended anyway. Good luck.

          You should go to a proshop and see what you can do, others have mentioned there are cocking assist devices such as rope-cocking devices and crank devices
