Default 9 yr old sons first bow hog

We had some hogs coming in at one of our stands so me and Caden headed that way. About 5pm a couple sows came in and one presented him with a shot so he took it. Perfect quartering away shot. Hog ran off and we could hear it crash and bubble breathing. We knew it was down and he was very excited. When we got out of the stand he said he wanted to blood trail it all by himself, and he did. I didn't help him with one drop. He has killed a couple deer with his bow but to finally get a shot at a hog he was really excited.
