My First Buck And My Trustworthy Mission 360 Submitted by: jerryangeletti
I have always loved archery but I have never taken the time and the effort to be really good at it. When I was a kid we had a few acres in the country with a nice, clean brook running through it. I hunted a little, but mostly I remember how much I enjoyed being outdoors. Now, at the age of 60 I am hunting again, but I am also a marksman at 30 and even 40 yards. I use the term marksman because my Mission 360 MXB has helped me to become very confident that I can hit any …
I predict a RIOT Submitted by: smilinggrim
For the second year in a row the Mission RIOT has produced results!!! Almost a year to the day from my first buck harvest I dropped this Kansas beauty with an awesome pass through (notice my Easton Aftermath 400 with Rage 2-Blade)!!! Thanks again Mission, now on to 2014…can we make it 3 years in a row??!!!!
First Buck Submitted by: smilinggrim
My wife bought me the Mission Riot for a Christmas gift in December 2011. I basically knew nothing about deer hunting; however, with countless hours at the range and presistance in the field I was able to bag my first deer ever and 36 hours later I bagged my first buck!!! Many thanks to Mission for providing an affordable bow with outstanding quality!!!
My daughter (15) took her first deer with a Mission Craze at 14 yards.
First Deer Taken. Submitted by: tarendt55
First deer taken on first my first shot at a deer ever. It was about 7:30 am and I heard a crack behind me. I looked over my left shoulder out of my stand and there he stood as if he just appeared out of thin air. He then walked about another 10 yards and gave me a broadside shot. I smoked him with my Mission Ballistic, he went about 250 yards and went down. Definitely an awesome first experience.
First Compound Bow Buck Submitted by: bucky
This was my first year using a compound bow in hunting season. In the past I have used a crossbow, but this year I was eager to get out with a challenge. It was about a month into the Pennsylvania hunting season. I have had multiple opportunities but they just never worked out until that cool November morning. A nice looking 3 point trotted under my stand around 7:50. I drew back my Mission Riot and waited for the right shot. He stopped 8 yards under my stand. I shot and he ran off. After about waiting 15 minutes, we …
First Deer Down With Mission Blaze!!! Submitted by: bearbuck
I hunted Saturday opening day with my son. We saw nothing but had a great time together. We ended up getting each other tickled and fighting back laughter. These are priceless memories that we recount through the year after season is over. Tuesday my son had football practice in the evening so I went alone. I work midnight shifts so it was evening Tuesday before I got on stand around 5pm. I sat still and quiet and as the evening wore on and it being 73 degrees I was thinking slim chances to see one. Around 7:10 I kept thinking …
A Day to Remember Submitted by: Mission Archery
It was Saturday, opening day of bow season; my dad was about to go bear hunting when he thought, “why not take my daughter bow hunting instead.” We put on all of our hunting clothes and took a couple of practice shots before we headed out. When we arrived we made sure we were ready and we quietly got into the stand. It had not even been 2 minutes and we had a doe and a fawn come in. I got my release ready and waited for the perfect shot. I knew I was ready because I have been shooting …
First Elk Ever Submitted by: haileyarcher
I am a 66 year old archer and have been shooting bows less than a year. Shot my first elk ever with Mission Blaze bow set at 61 pounds on Sep 17 at 8am near Hailey Idaho where I live. It was a 500 pound cow. First arrow was a double lung shot at 45 yards. She stumbled towards me and I put a second arrow through her heart at 35 yards and that arrow was a complete pass through, and she died almost instantly. Shot my first archery deer about 12 days earlier and it was a heart shot …
