Default Does A Lost Pig Count?

I shot a sow this evening. She was moving fast and reactions took over. I hit right where I was aiming, then realized that aiming spot was perfect for a deer, not a hog, right behind the shoulder. She acted sick while running off, but I never found a drop of blood other than on my arrow. I think I got back of lungs/liver/diaphram area. Dead hog, just not riding home with me.

At least you poked one. Good job there. Funny you mentioned, perfect spot for a deer. I'm curious. If you hit the exact spot, where do you shoot?

Hmm, good point... well I shouldn't have said perfect. It would have been 'good enough' for a deer. Right where I'd aim with a rifle though. With deer I like to go up from the elbow about 1/3rd of the way up when shooting with a bow. This was 3-4" back of that spot on the hog.

In the heat of the moment, I'm afraid I rushed the shot, and just reverted back to my early days with a rifle.

I'd say the green dot right here's where I hit the hog.

I’m heading out this afternoon so hopefully we can get it going with some LDPs. I have 1 buck tag left and ANY buck is on the hit list. Hopefully one of the many scrub bucks I’ve had right in front of me or one of the nice bucks I have on camera will show.

Congrats Byron. Trumpkin, I am a little surprised you did not find your pig if that is the spot you hit. I have made a few work out with pretty close to the same hit. Again not intentional, but it can work.

I was pretty shocked myself. How can a pig take a 2" Treeshark through its middle and leave zero blood? I dunno... I got a good view of the first 40 yards of path it ran away on, and there was not a drop of blood. after that, all the game trails crisscrossed so bad, I resorted to grid searching, and trying to bump into it's lone piglet.

Well, after one of the most miserable hunting seasons I can remember, with blunder after blunder that convinced me to go out and buy a wheel bow, the last weekend of the season (but first of the new year) turned out absolutely awesome!

I sure hope this past weekend was a sign of how things are going to go for the rest of 2018!!!

Friday afternoon:



Saturday afternoon:



Sunday morning:



Sunday afternoon:



Congrats to all who have been successful so far!!!!!
