Default strung x-bow

Just picked 2 used recurve style x-bows; both are strung. Should they be stored unstrung like a recurve bow or can they be left strung? Thanks--woodsrunner

Good Hunting--Woodsrunner

I don't know what brand you have. I own an excalibur Ibex, they are traditional stringed crossbows. Excalibur recommended unstringing them at the end of the season, but folks who own them don't usually do that. I have done both...left stringed and tried unstringing. I didn't see a difference in my bow except you have to recalibrate the scope after taking off the string for any length of time and my scope usually wasn't off by much. I just leave the string on now, but of course not cocked.

It's either or not IMO, but I would check with your manufacturer to see what they recommend.

Life may change us, but we start and end with family.
