In January, I would always relax my vertical compound limbs 3 full turns. Is it wise to do that with my crossbow as well? How many turns are safe? Thanks!

I don't think, given todays string composition and technology, that you need to relax any of the limbs on either compound or crossbows. Years ago when strings were more prone to stretch, we did it, and the results were usually we had to get the bow retimed to shoot right anyway. I would say that as long as you store your bow in a constant temperature and humidity, you are fine.

Not recommended with crossbows. The manufactures get a little antcy when you start messing with limb bolts.

As far as I know only recurves need this done now a days. I pull the strings off mine after season until the weather gets nice enough for me to get back out practicing.
