I ordered my Mission Craze bow at Clyde’s Archery in Corpus Christi, Texas.
I’ve had my Mission Craze bow for several weeks now. The first few uses left my arms tired and sore. It was partly due to using muscles I don’t normally use in that way, but mostly it was because of the shoulder surgery I had last year. Even so, I am getting better and stronger.
The best part is that it is accurate. One technically could argue that I’m the one who is accurate since I am pretty accurate with a gun and a bowling ball. But, I hesitate to say it’s all me because the last time I used a bow was in 1973. At best I would be considered out of practice.
It’s going to take time until I have enough strength to pull at a high enough draw weight to make a good kill shot, but I’ll get there! This is my final post about the Mission Craze.
When the summer starts to wain and deer season is just around the corner, I always think about going hunting. Many of my family members were hunters. I remember grandpa bringing home squirrel, rabbit and of course deer. Some where in the family archive is a 1971 home video of my father, grandfather and uncles dressing out a nice buck one of them had shot. They were butchering it and it would feed the family for quite some time.
Now, though, bow hunting will be a great challenge. Bow hunting is more difficult on several levels. Its a greater personal challenge to use the bow and be accurate even in an archery lane. Bow hunting outside brings the challenges of wind, noise and your own movements. For this reason, I have decided to accept the challenge.
After considerable research, I ordered a Mission Craze bow. It was the first bow that felt like it belonged in my hand. I liked everything about it from the weight to the size. It comes in four color choices and several premium color choices. Choosing the color was the most difficult decision. Eventually I settled on the black and white zebra stripe pattern. I can’t wait until it gets here.
