My first pig with a traditional bow
« on: April 19, 2021, 04:17:41 PM »
Hi all,

I was out scouting for deer a couple of months back and doing a walk around a ridge to check some trail cameras. As I was making my way through some tight pine I saw the shape of a boar moving towards me at a fairly good clip. I didn't have much time to react and thought he'd end up right on top of me, so I put an arrow on my string and froze. He slowed down when he got closer and looked at me a bit confused as he made his way around me at about five yards. Once he moved past and started heading away I came to full draw and let out a little whistle to stop him. I let my arrow go and it hit him fairly quartering away and the penetration looked good. I followed up his trail in the direction I heard a few crashes and found him piled up in some thick stuff, so I dragged him out and propped him up on a log for a photo.

Thanks, fellas!

I've killed hundreds of pigs before - rifles, dogs, traps, and compound bows, but this one is one of the most memorable for sure. Really hoping to get after them over the next few months with my new longbow.

Hey, mate. This was also my first kill with my PCH riser and the original 65# limbs that my friend gave me. Haven't shot your 54# limbs for a little while now.

I was thinking that, and I was also thinking that I'd sell them and use the funds to go towards a new bow in the same sort of weight range. At the moment I've got a 35# Bodnik Quick Stick, 45# Bodnik Hunter, 54#/65# Widow PCH and a 65# D style longbow. Wouldn't mind getting something in the 50# range like a Javaman Elkheart or Toelke.

Either way, I'm hoping to get stuck into a lot more pigs in our cooler months. :archer:
