Default storing your bow

Does anyone crank down the poundage on their bow when they store it? I admit I rarely shoot my bow during the winter months. So when I put it away until spring I give about 5 full turns. Is this a good idea? Should I turn it more? less?

Its always good to turn the poundage down on your bow if you don't plan on shooting it for a while. Less stress on the limbs and whatnot.

I shoot my bows year round, so I never worry about it.
