Default Son got 1st Xbow Kill. Big boar


My son got his first with a crossbow last night and he got a good one. We have been after this boar for a year and he finally screwed up. He was being real cautious and wouldnít turn so after 5-6 min I told him if he had a neck shot to take it. Dropped him right where he stood. No tracking required. Iím so proud of him. He was shaking after the shot. This is what itís all about.

Good stuff right there. He will remember that forever. Plus, heck of a boar. Weighs a lot more than he does it looks like! Congrats to both of you.

Thanks. We are euro mounting it. Having the skull camo dipped. I really thought about doing a shoulder mount but we did a euro on his sisters pig (it was actually bigger) so wanted to be fair. I'll prob regret not shoulder mounting both.

Its a Barnette Jackyl we have had for 5-6 years. Upgraded the scope to a Nikon. Everytime I think about upgrading it, it puts down another animal. Daughter uses a Barnette Raptor FX in Muddy Girl camo. I have them shoot them off a Caldwell Fieldpod to help keep it steady and also to keep their hands out of the way of the string. My wife learned the hard way unfortunately.

Greatness and way to teach him the proper sit 5’ behind your kill to make it look bigger.

Great job to you both.

Haha. Nope he was really right behind that pig for the pic. No camera angle required for this big stinky boar.
