I have heard alot of guys leave them strung all the time. A bow strung is a weapon, unstrung it is a stick. I keep mine unstrung, because I have a grandson living with me. If he wasn't I would keep them unstrung anyway.
I was just wondering, thought on my days off, it would make it that much quicker and easier for me to practice. I have a small area in the house that I can shoot about 8 yards just practicing form and keeping the muscles in shape. Guess it's kinda lazy of me, but I know I'll be more likely to practice if I can just walk by and pick it up to shoot. Thought if it was ok to leave it for 3 or 4 days at a time (I work compressed shifts and have 3 days off 1 week and 5 the next), then I would unstring for the work days (work 12+ hour shifts, so bout all I do on those days is work, eat, sleep).
it takes seconds to unstring a bow so i always unstring mine just to be safe. a few seconds or a few hundred bucks for a new set of limbs? although lots of guys do leave them strung with no issues im not taking the chance
