Quick weekend pig hunt 03/25-03/26 2006
« on: March 29, 2006, 09:17:00 AM »
Had a chance to bug out from work early Friday .. did a little hog hunting and thought you guys might like to see what happened!

                 

64#@28" Zipper Recurve...Troy Breeding single taper hickory shaft 29 inches long, Grizzly 160, 3- 5 inch parabolic fletch, total arrow weight 810 grains...15 -17 yard shot..spot and stalk.  The hog ran 70 yards..lung and liver hit-not total pass through, it hung in there by the fletching...and pulled out after a few steps into the thicket.(already field dressed in the picture)

One interesting note- only ONE drop of blood, smeared on a stalk of river cane was all the blood we got- stumbled up on the pig dead..but no blood trail...just the one spot and the arrow a little further in along the pig path was it. Amazing.

This was about 1 1/2 hours south of me, near Perry GA in Macon County.

I'm the worlds worst when it comes to guessing right on hogs...but after this one was field dressed we took a " W A G " at it and figured it was around 150 maybe...I'm not sure. In that area they have legitimate 400+ pounders and they are mean looking hogs when they get that big!!!

A good meat hog ... anything I take with a bow(all I hunt with) is a "trophy" for me, though! It was a great hunt with lots of action. Saw several others - think the cold snap we had this weekend really got 'em moving around!

Isnt that just a NASTY lookin' hog??? Came ambling up the trail and stopped about 18 yards out and gave me a look like I was long overdue paying back a loan- then turned broadside for a better look- but the grizzly 160 was just too much to handle!

Joe,

interesting signature. Do you play the harp?
