View Full Version : Ran out of arrows

05-20-2010, 11:49 AM
Well tried to get up early this morning and get my dog a track but got a late start. By the time I was pulling in I saw a group of about 12 pigs in the road going to my property. When I pulled onto my property it was about to be daylight. I could see good enough to see my block target about 30 yards away from my truck door. I reach in the truck pull out the Bobcatt and put the glove on. I grab one of the three arrows I have pull back and hit a beer bottle top in the middle of the target. I feel good so I grab the two arrows I have left and go get on the stand.

Walking in I bounce out 2 deer that were arround the feeder eating allready. Dang Im running very late the feeder has allready thrown. I sit in the stand for a few minutes and a covey of quail come in and put on a show for about 15 minutes. Then I hear the pigs coming and the quil leave. I have 2 sows and about 15 shoats come in and start feeding. I pick out a shoat that is out a little ways and pull back and the arrow is on its way. Right where I was looking quartered to me shot right in front of the shoulder. One of the sow spooks and she drags about 8 with her. The remainng sow and shoats keep working around. She steps into my lane hard quartered away and I aim for the back of the ribs and my last arrow is on it way. Another good hit. I settle in and going to wait for about 15 minutes. I close my eyes and start replaying the shots and I hear crunching. Its a group of three different hogs one of them being a boar about 150#. Out of arrows I just watch until they are done feeding and leave.
I get the dog out to work and he finds the shoat about 60 yards away easy blood trail. I couldnt find any blood at all on the sow and I drop the dog the way she ran. about 5 minutes later I hear him about 120 yards away as the crow flys in the middele of a cedar thicket. She didn't drop any blood as my feathers were in the entrance hole and the tip of the broadhead was sticking out about 1/2 way in front of her shoulder. At least I know my arrows are getting 30 inches of penetration. Cant wait to hit the woods again.

Way to go Glen! Every since I started trad hunting, I have hunted hard to take a hog with my bow but no luck yet. I won't give up though. It is too much fun.

Good shooting Glen. Soon. Soon I will have to put down the wheel bow and take up my recurve full time.

Don't take more arrows.....then you'll have too many pigs down and will be all day (or night) gettin' 'em in the freezer. Besides, you have to save some of them for the next trip (when I'm with you).
Way to go .
