Guru, is that black mass in the first picture the lungs or just blood?

I hope to make good on some hogs at Rays place in a couple of weeks.  This thread has been very helpful and I try to study up on something that I haven't hunted before.  Thanks Terry and Curt for being so informative.   :readit:

What does everyone think u the magnus stinger for hogs? I had a buddy just get back from texas on a hog/javi hunt. He shot 2 javi's and bent 2 stinger heads. 1 blade and 1 ferrule. Its got me a little worried now. I have a hog hunt scheduled for early may at shilo.

Terry, didn't you pass through another large shielded boar with a 4 blade?  Would you please post pics?

Thanks Terry, great post...♠

Terry do you think a 3 blade like the vpa terminator coming of a 55 pound bow will pass through a heavily shielded boar?

i'll be the first to say i'm no hog expert to say the least. from what i have gathered on here and talking to guys that shoot a lot of hogs a pass through is very rare on large boars with thick shield's. i do think you would get enough penetration to make some sausage!

I don't know for sure James....I haven't killed any big shielded hogs with a 55# bow. My kills on the two biggest shielded boars were with a 67# A&H ACS and a 70# MOAB marked those weights at 28"s and I draw about 27.5.  Both of those boars were passed through with 4 blades though.

I have passed through several nice size hogs with WW Originals and a 64# bow...but no large shielded ones.

I would recommend IF you are going to use VPAs, use the ones that are the width of the WW originals and that they are SHARP.  My best guess is that you are not going to pass through.  AND, the bigger the boar/thicker the shield, the more penetration you are going to need to get into that 2nd lung for a quick kill

That is based on the info you gave me....so, let me ask for more....

What is your arrow weight?

What is your true draw length?

What model of bow are you shooting?

I've not used the terminator. I use right now strictly Snuffers, but now that I've heard that they are "histoire", I looked to the Terminator as an alternative head. I've killed sheep and pigs with MA3's in the past and the very first pig I ever saw killed with a Snuffer was from a friend to whom I gave a few snuffers to try. That very Saturday....

Back to the Terminator... It is an awful lot like a 3:1 MA3 or Bodkin... and if Snuffers are truly gone, that is the first head I'm trying.

I've always used for hunting, bows of 60# or more but everything matters, shot placement, angle, etc... the "Puna" as we call it here in Hawaii, is NO CAPE BUFFALO! Thick, gristled, and intimedating to be sure, but the energy of the arrow, the design, why I like the idea of the terminator, is what matters. 55# in MY OPINION would handle any basic pig... get into the truly huge pigs and I can personally tell you that I've not shot cuz onetime I was intimidated    :scared:   .... that was also with a 60# Browning takedown.

Much Aloha....     :cool:      :archer2:
