The Mission X-Series?

Recommended Posts

I am looking to get back into Archery once again. I used PSE threw out my youth, but I am leaning twords Mathews as a bow to get back on the path with.

I am not ready to pull the trigger with spending a $1000.00 on a set up right now, so I am looking at a little lower cost. I am liking the X4 and X3. I figure this should be a good bow to start back in again with and maybe pass down to my son in a couple years.

Then again, should I just spend the money on the DXT, Buckmasters or Journey now?

I was granted access to another 160 acres of private land for gun season this year. It is managed as far as food plots and such, but not hunted as of last year and for years to come. I was told I could bow hunt it also. I figure a couple weeks of blowing some arrows out back at targets and a some trips up to the range should get me back in the swing of things for hunting again.

Just getting the itch again and getting sick of being left out on some great bow trips with my buddies also. I wanted to get a couple opinions on the Mission X-Series before going up and pulling the trigger.

Thanks

I shot the Mission last year at Whitcombs. I thought it felt like a great bow. If it feels good to you and you like it, I'd say go for it.

I purchased the X4 last year and really like the bow. It is light, quiet, and reasonably priced. These are also made in famous Sparta, Wisconsin.

I bought the x3 last year. It is a great bow, fast, quiet, light... so far it has killed 3 deer. Oh yeah have the price of a mathews but with the same quality. IMO

    • I shoot 2 steel all season long in an improved cyclinder choke . Satisfied with that. Have a buddy who shoots Black Cloud 3's with impressive results.
    • I stopped at Lowes yesterday and got restocked at 9.88 per 18.6 lb double pack. No limit indicated.  
    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
