Default Howard Hill broad-head on a pig

I was at the TBOT shoot in Vanderpool a few weeks ago where there was a gentleman selling off a bunch of arrows for a friend who had cancer and I bought a couple with Howard Hill heads. I felt it would be cool to take a pig with one and got it done Wednesday, I thought that the original owner might like to know that his arrows are getting put to use.

Got this one while on a spot and stalk, caught it under that tree there. Used my new Optimus 21" riser with Tradtech limbs, really digging it, a heavy one but a good shooter.

Great shooting, Mike!

I've got to set a date for my hunt over there.

Thanks all, had a great time.

Best one was 214#, first shot was poor but I was able to run it down and finally hit "the funnel" to bring her down:

Nice shooting. I guess you could say those HH broadheads are killer.
