South Texas Hog
« on: March 14, 2017, 01:22:00 PM »
Here is the hog that I shot while night hunting in South Texas.  This sucker was bionic, and pretty ticked about getting stuck with an arrow!

Archery is in the eye of the bowholder...

The shot was maybe 12-15 yards, both lungs hit.  I ended up shooting him several times because the sucker wouldnt die!  I used a combination of simmons and zwickey broadheads.
