    I'm a country boy who within the last year got married to a city girl. I've hunted my whole life while that idea had never crossed her mind. Understandable being she wasn't raised that way. But I've gotta say, this woman keeps amazing me everyday! She was okay with me upgrading bows this year, under the agreement that I could get her one because she figured it was time she tries hunting as well! Boy was I pumped! So I did alot of checking and picked up this Mission Craze for her which I think is best suited for new shooters, and after an hour of adjusting and practicing, she can flat out shoot! She's probably better than I am! So proud!

    My wife got into archery and bow hunting a few years back. She went out in the morning with me in early October when it was 53 degrees. I knew she was going to be cold, so I put her in all my cold-weather gear. She only lasted an hour and a half and was frozen, no exaggeration!! So needless to say she no longer hunts.

    Mission Craze is a nice little bow. I had that prior to my Elite. Thanks for allowing your wife to get involved. So many don't want us to hunt as it is the "mans time". Heck, a lot of the guys my husband hunts with hate when I go along. Best of luck to her (and you).
