2004 Florida Hog
« on: January 26, 2004, 12:03:00 PM »
I stalked this free-ranging boar on the edge of a south-central Florida pasture, and shot him at about 20 yards.  I used a Black Widow PSAV, 54#@28".  The arrow was a Wensel Woodsman tipped Gold Tip 55/75 at 540 grains total weight.  The arrow stopped at the far shoulder, and he went about 80 yards before piling up.

Man, What a WOOLY MAMMOTH! Congratulations on a great hunt. I'm going to be shooting a similar bow soon and may consult you on tuning the gold tips. Ckruse

Awesome! That thing really is a hawg!
To me, the ultimate challenge in bowhunting is not how far away you can succesfully make a killing shot but rather how close you can get to the animal before shooting.

Thanks Guys!
The quiver is a Thunderhorn quiver that screws into the quiver inserts.
