First pig with my big longbow
« on: March 14, 2022, 02:49:17 PM »
Hi all,

I got this longbow in May 2021 but only managed to kill something with it over the weekend. Tough hunting combined with me being lazy are to blame.  :biglaugh:

Anyhow, I was out walking some scrub with a mate of mine and we came across a couple of pigs. They made for an easy stalk and I shot this sow from about 16 metres. She's about to go in my freezer and I'm stoked to get it done with this bow, finally. It's the first ever bow I had custom-made brand new for me and it's also built in Australia so it's special to me.

Bow details:
Norseman Chieftain.
66in long.
65# @ 26.5in.
Antler tip overlays.
Brazilian bloodwood riser.
Black glass.
Fallow deer antler tips.

I used an arrow weighing about 580gns (I'd rather shoot heavier but it's what I had) with a 200gn Tusker Aztec broadhead.

Cheers mate!

I missed another pig with the same bow the weekend just gone. They can't me in an awkward position.

Things are really gearing up for the fallow rut now. I might set the ASL down and take my recurve.

There ya go!  Like seeing skewered pigs?
I can afford to shoot most any bow I like.  And I like Primal Tech bows.

I liked seeing this little sow on the ground as I got to stalk them for a short while and I enjoyed the whole thing.

for this boar last year, he was on top of me (nearly) moments after I noticed him, so the whole thing only lasted a few seconds. Very surprising but a much more impressive pig.

All my trad bows are dusty at the moment as I had to give up shooting them for a while when I was sick and it's taken me a while to get my strength back. Been shooting a compound a lot and really enjoying it but have been shooting the trad bows a bit recently and am starting to feel confident with them again/

Thanks for looking, fellas.
