When storing your 2 piece longbows do you store them with the limbs together or separated?

I took a bow sock and cut it in half. Then I was able to pack the bow in a rolling duffel bag.

I would store them separately. In fact I believe Black Widow has a soft case for this purpose that doesn’t require removing the string from either limb.

I have two 2-piece longbows that I usually leave on the rack in one piece unless I am traveling to hunt somewhere.  I usually shoot them each several times a week, if only for a few arrows.  Will take them apart every month of so just to make sure I still can. Had one a few years ago that was almost impossible to get apart if I Iet it set too long.

Shooting right now (Sep 2020):

I only take mine apart for occasional cleanings, or travel. Only 2 piece I’ve ever had difficulty with sticking was the old metal to metal sleeve. Hmmmm, I better take my 2 piece fiberglass connection bow apart and clean it now.

Only take mine apart when I travel. I use my BW takedown longbow case that folds in two.
