    I do not unstring my Excaliburs at all except when I change a string. If I were going to store one without shooting at all for several months I might though but it is not really necessary.

    Crossbow are not designed to be unstrung and there's no manufacturer that I'm aware of that has published any type of recommendation to do so. There are also no manufacturers of cables or strings that have suggested unstringing your crossbow to preserve lifespan or wear on your cables or string.

    I looked at the Excalibur website under FAQ's this very question is asked. The answer they offer is that it one doesn't have to unstring an Excal. bow but they seem to infer that doing so isn't such a bad thing either, implying that unstringing the bow lets the limbs "relax". I personally unstring my bows during the off season or when I'm sure that I won't be target shooting for an extended period of time.
