I am wanting to get a deer hunting bow for my 13 year old son what do you recommend
Mission Craze! Excellent quality and fully adjustable. Make a excellent bow for the growing teenager! In the event he doesn't keep interest it will make one dandy backup bow!
I bought the Mission Craze for my son an when my daughter wants to bow hunt I will get her one too.
Mission Craze no doubt.
Mission Ballistic 26"/65#
Axcel Armortech 5-Pin
DCA Arrows w/ Killzone Low KE
Yeah definitely check out the Mission lineup. They make great bows
or the diamond razors edge or infinity edge but the mission lineup has some good bows

Trophy Ridge drive single pin

The Craze is a great bow... But if he is already 13 I would lean more towards the Mission Riot. The riser is considerably longer so it's going to grow with him better (IMO) than some of the youth/adult adjustable bows (like the Craze or Ruckus for example) and it's still as adjustable as the Craze... In another year or two, I think you would be really glad you went with the little bit bigger bow.....

Can't go wrong with the Mission Craze. I bought my wife one as this is her first year bow hunting and she loves it. I shoot it now and then too. Very nice bow. My buddy owns the archery shop in town and he can't keep them on the shelve!

Riot is a great bow as well. Take your kid in and have him shoot both. To me I couldn't justify the extra $100 price tag on the Riot. Granted it comes with a string stop but you can add that to the Craze for $45. That and I didn't want my kid shooting a bow with a longer (1") ATA then mine. The Craze is not a kids / woman's bow. Lots of full size (6' 2" 220 Lbs 30 inch draw guys) are shooting it. Little bit easier for the youngster to handle... Especially in a blind. That and I don't plan or want my kid taking anything over a 30 yard shot. That short ATA sure won't make a difference at those ranges.
My son has moved up into my old Mathews Legacy coming from a Parker bow off the shelf from Cabellas and daughter shoots a diamond..think this is a bow tech.
They were good starters but if he is really getting into it the mission mentioned above would be this current seasons choice. Best a luck!
Ya, Mission Craze for sure.. if he is big for his age you might be able to get him the Mission Riot. That bow will grow with him a little longer.
I would highly recommend a Hoyt Ruckus! My son is 10 years old and he currently is shooting it at 38 lbs and can shoot that bow great! I have attached a link of the video of him shooting his first deer with that bow this past October, and him and the bow did great! The bow draws really smooth and is easy for him to hold if he has to, and is really accurate. Great youth bow!!!
