Default Headshot (bow) Boar- Skull Mount

I got my skull mount back from the taxi today. Shot him at 30 yards while walking back to my buggy. This was the Friday evening before rifle season opened. I was hoping you would be able to see where the broadhead entered and exited.

I think it turned out pretty cool.

That's awesome. I wanted to do mine but wasn't for sure if you would be able to see the entrance, so I didn't waste my time. Plus it was a sow. it was between the eye & the ear.

I liked his grizzly colored coat. Those make good shoulder mounts IMO. But I think the Euro shows off the shot placement better. Very cool.

That turned out sweet. I made the exact shot on a big sow about 6 years ago. Was going to euro it out just like you did. Shot it in the evening, threw the head on the ground around camp and the yotes got it over night and I never could find it. Still pi**es me off that I didnt throw it in the truck. Anyrate, congrats on a sweet euro.

I used a Muzzy Trocar broadhead. Not sure how it held up as the tip of the arrow broke off when I pulled out the arrow. I know it did the job. Haha
