Bowfishing Craze Submitted by: viciousfishes
I shot this bighead in a small stream in central Illinois. She was about 20 yards out, and just below the surface. I was surprised with the size… 39 inches and 24 lbs! The Craze is the perfect bow for bowfishing. It’s light, compact and has no problem firing the 1,400 grain fishing arrows.
My Second Deer Submitted by: dtomlinson
It was about 7:30 and I see a deer run across a shooting lane and it looked to be a spike horn so I thought that if I could get him up here I would probably take him. Then I did some calling just so he knew that we were there. Then we waited. My dad was looking towards a field and saw something that looked like a deer or antlers. He took a second look and said “oh its just a squirrel”. About 5 minutes later he sees a pair of antlers and told me to get my bow. …
South African Blue Wildebeast Submitted by: Stephen Haber
We were hunting north of Thabazimbi, South Africa. This beauty came into the zone at 10 minutes before dark. I shot him with my UX2 set at 63 lbs, with a Easton Axis 300 gr arrow and NAP 125 gr Thunderhead broad head. It was only a 10 meter shot, and the arrow was a complete pass through both lungs. He stumbled away and I knew he was hit good. He went on for about 80 meters and then just fell down. This is the third African animal I have taken with my UX2. Every time I think about upgrading, …
Justin with the Mission MXB 320 Submitted by: gomountains01
My cousin drove down from New Jersey with his family and we had the pleasure of spending the week with them during their spring break. We went fishing, played ball, and just hung out. Then they saw our Mission MXB 320 and that was it. We spent one morning shooting in the back yard, we popped balloons, and shot some more. Just when I thought they had their fill, they asked if we could shoot some more. So we headed off to our local 3D archery range and spent the entire day shooting at 3D targets at distances from 20 …
My First Deer Submitted by: arseneau
It was a cold morning and me and my dad were sitting in the same stand he had shot his first deer a week earlier. This was the first morning hunt of the season and I knew my dad and I had a good setup going on this field edge. At 6:45 I looked up and saw a nice 8 point on top of the railroad tracks. As he crossed through the ditch I stood up with my Craze in hand. This deer started walking right at me and walked broadside at 18 yards. My dad made a grunt to …
It was a beautiful night and the sun was slowly setting. Me and my son sat in the tree stand and we’re about to call it quits with 15 minutes of shooting time left. Then there was a crunch and another until a beautiful 10 point buck stood on the field edge. My son stood to take a shot but the buck ran 20 feet away. I stayed sitting and pulled back from that position. I released and the arrow flew true. He ran 60 yards away and laid down peacefully. I had finally harvested my first deer.
First Archery Deer Submitted by: shanebohnert
First ever deer taken with the Mission Craze. Thanksgiving Evening in Southern MN during a snow storm. The family all made fun of me for going out. The wind was over 30 MPH and I Was sitting on the ground. I shot this buck under 20 yards. I upgraded to the Ballistic this year and put another deer in the freezer. I love the Ballistic. I have shot friends higher end bows and I like my Mission better. I have had friends shoot my bow and went out to buy one for themselves.
11 Year Old Arrows a Big Buck Submitted by: longbeard1
My name is Macy Odle. I’m 11 years old in this photo when I arrowed this big buck. It was an 8 yard shot with a 100 yard recovery. This is my second deer with this bow. I shot an antlerless deer last year. I’m hooked on deer hunting with my Mission Craze, and look forward to next hunting season.
