Just skinned a small 100 lb hog a friend gave me to feed out.  I attempted to brain tan the hide but that's a diff story.
I was amazed at how dense the shield was on that little pig.

Just for interest sake any of you guys planning a trip to africa practice the shots as indicated by Terry as a safe shot all african animals needs to be shot in the triangle made by the front leg and nothing further back(only kudu is an excemption)
Thanx Terry well documented and explained!!!!

I've done two shots on big HOGS quarter behind shield arrow came out other side  between shoulder and head. Three steps and they dropped! I really try for that shot!Very impressive! The photos you show Terry are the same ones I have taking  on hunts and pass out to guys who have yet to kill a Hog,they can really see where to place that arrow. Glad to see those pics again, your getting me itching to go get bacon.Pete

I am sitting in my stand with my hickory self bow I made this summer just wishing 1 of those dang  hogs would come by. Its just a matter of time! this is my first year hunting with traditional equipment since I was a kid! Just curious if any 1 knows when and if Mohawk bows will be accepting orders again? Really love his work and would love 1 of his bows!

What an education I got from this thread! I hope to hunt hogs in the future. I will remember to check back here once I can group my shots in that space.

Good pictures and good advice for others to follow. The shield of a wild boar is something else.I shot one years ago in Louisiana, and you couldn't stick an ice pick through the shield. Shot placement as explained here is the best example I have seen posted.only other choice is to brain one, only when it is a half to, kill or get cut up. Choice you may have to make.JERRY HILL...

I have hunted all types of game over the years.the hunting of hogs has always been my favorite. It offers all the challenges and dangers that one could hope for. They desire great respect and an archer should hunt them with the up most respect. It be wise for an archer who is going for the first time to read and study them well. Knowing their behaviours will prepare one for one of the GREATEST adv adventures to be had. Never ever take anything for granted when hunting wild hogs. If one let's their guard down for one second, is When you may find yourself in trouble. Always when making a shot, renock another arrow quickly, because a downed boar may not be quite dead yet.JERRY HILL....

Wow is all I can say.  Very cool thread.  The pictures were very informative. Not to mention the massive hog.   :)
