Wild Boar
« on: November 05, 2009, 09:19:00 PM »
I had the opportunity to get on stand Tuesday evening for a hunt.  I heard the hogs in the brush on the way in, and knew there was no chance for a stalk through the thicket.  I went to stand.  

At one point counting all the piglets, I believe there were at least 35 hogs within a 50 yrd radius of the stand.  I shot this grey boar at about 12 yrds, he only travelled about 70 yrds.

Equipment used:  ELITE Cedar arrow (big thanks to Paul for such awesome craftsmanship), Woodsman Elite 160 gr. broadhead with a 75 gr. woody weight (wow what a head!), Vintage 1989 MR Hamilton osage Scorpion Longbow, 57# @ 26 1/2", High Noon Hunter Quiver (I found it, the quiver!)

Trust in the Lord,

Jeff

Woodsman Elite, best BH I have ever used!  Tough, did not put a scratch on it with this hog, no bent tip, nothing.  They fly great, easy to sharpen, I mean nasty sharp.  I hit this hog right behind the shoulder through the thick stuff got seven inches penetration with only a 57 pound bow.  The hog travelled maybe 70 yrds, if that, and we had blood all the way to him with no exit hole.  I am stoked about the broadheads!!
