    Default Best way to store a takedown recurve?

    I have surgery tomorrow, and won't be able to shoot my bow for around three months. So I was wondering what the best way to store it would be? I know the string should be off. But how should I store the limbs? I don't want them to bend or twist or something like that.

    Unstrung, on a horizontal rack if you have one. Or just pull the limbs off. Cool dry environment if you have such a spot. As long as you don't pile stuff on them they'll be fine. Good luck on the surgery.

    Is there any way I should store them though? Like right now I have them nesting inside each other laying face up on my table. Also, I notice that on the limbs near the are where they go into the pockets and the bolt bolts down on them. They have like, kind of a circular scratch where the piece meets the limb. Am I tightening it too much? Or is that normal? Sorry I have no idea what any of those parts are called.
