I never store my bows, I shoot every bow i have at least once a week, some times i will shoot up to three bows in one day, but I'm always working on bows, I don't own one bow that is the way i got it, most of them I've built or rebuilt and not always to specs.

Me too. I don't spend money on such things as archery gear to put it away and do nothing with it. I shoot my equipment usually 3 days a week during the winter and almost daily during the summer.

Heck, if the only time I shot a bow was for hunting season I'd only shoot about 3 arrows every ten years. In that case I'd just see about renting.

Seriously, you can back the limbs off if you like. Either way isn't going to make much difference. Just be sure to back both limbs out an equal amount of turns and mark this on a piece of masking tape attached to the bow.
