Hog Shot Placement and Shield clip.......
« on: May 27, 2008, 10:39:00 PM »
Thanks to Tom Mussatto for compressing this clip for easy download.

I'd also like to add that I center punched the shoulder MUCLE...not the shoulder bone.  The lungs were behind the shield where I hit and not bone.  This shows just how far forward you can shoot a hog and go straight to the vitals boneless....if you got enough bow or the right broadhead to get through the shield.

Great info. You always hear about the shoulder armor on hogs but until you see it, it is hard to understand just how thick they are.

It doesn't matter how or what you shoot, as long as you hit your target.

Thanks Terry,
I didn't know that shield was that hard!  I guess I better step it up if I want to get through that on a big hog.

It was a 70# Thunderstick MOAB - and an Ace Super Express.

 

Yep, the guy had petrified catcher's mitts as saddle bags.

No problem guys....that's what this place is here for.

That Ace is not really correct in image....its a bit longer more spear point shaped.  That pic came off their website...I'll try and get a better one.

Terry...thanks for the video.  Hogs (or hawgs as we say below Macon), have been my nemesis til this year.  i finally took my first & second so far since January.  My problem had been that subconsciously i couldn't make myself shoot that far forward.  Until i get a few more under my belt, i'm still not comfortable shooting them unless they have at least a slight quartering angle.
That was awesome!

Do all hogs have a shield that hard?

Cool vid and pin point shooting as usual Terry.

Its hard to make oneself shoot right above the hog's leg on the body, seems like the bone will be there, but its not. The leg bone elbows forward and then back at the scapula. As Nicki Roth told me in Florida, "Everything behind the head is guts." Shoot right through that above the leg point or to pass between the legs on a quartering away shot. The heart lays right on the bottom of the chest you can't shoot too low.

Stone Knife, only the larger boars have a shield that heavy, but younger ones will have some thickening.
