Default Lab rat down!!

my opinion of hogs is, they are just big lab rats for me to test broadheads on. I was back at the lease this weekend touching up sets, test driving the MeatSeeker 2" cut 3 blade broadheads and trying to learn how to use my new video camera . the first two i can handle but the camera is a work in progress. feeders spin at 8pm so I climbed up at 6:45pm fri. set the camera up and started texting my hunting partner who was dove hunting. at 7:50 i heard the pigs in bound. 10 head of pigs from 15-45lbs came running in and piled up under the feeder. I could hear what i thought was the sow still in the brush. so now im fighting with the remote for the video camera trying to get it to start recording. it was funny! i was gettin frustrated. i could see the pigs were starting to bed down 1 by 1 but i could'nt see that it was recording ( it would help if i'd wear my glasses) and some how when i finaly realized it had been recording i look down and all of the pigs are laying down under or around the feeder i even accidentaly took a still photo of them this filming deal is a challenge!! any way back to the pigs when the feeder spins they all stand up and what i thought was the sow turned out to be 9 or 10 more pigs 3 of them are 75-80lbs. i've got a black mob of pork under the feeder and picking out a clean shot is difficult until the biggest roots out the 2nd biggest and he shuffles to the out side edge facing 1/4'd away at 25yds. i think to my self perfect. i settle the single pin just behind his elbow and send it. i watched the lighted nock enter the crease as i hear the whack!! dead pig runniing heads south spewing blood and the remainder of the pigs quailed out of there in every possible direction. i reach over to my quiver hanging in the mesquite and grab a second arrow. to my surprise and dissapointment none of them returned to the feeder for more fun. as for the Broadhead I have shot 3 pigs with them so far and have been very happy with their performance> they make a huge hole! Good luck!
i will post what there is of the video today, as soon as i learn how

Another nice one Jim, you'll not only ready for deer season, but you look to be a well tuned killing machine ready for Africa next summer.

Adding the video definitely adds a challenge, but well worth the effort!!!!

One of these weekends, I look forward to getting with you....

Good huntin', Jim. Keep at it, brother. I gave up on the videoing when it cost me a good buck two years ago. I'll video if I can, but the shot comes before getting the viewfinder just right.

I have several videos of the ground where all you hear is the thwack of my bow! I quit videoing because it was too nuch of a pain in the rear.

Congrats on your pig!
