Default Son arrows a giant!

Took almost 17 years for us to shoot and recover a pig with a bow on our place. We have killed hundreds with guns but only 2 have been shot with a bow and this one we found. 32 yard shot and pig went about 75 yards. Wished we could have gotten it to a weigh station cause it was a big one. Huge storm was coming in and it went down a huge ravine and we couldn't get a vehicle anywhere close. We have weighed one smaller than this one and it went 230 so this one had to be 250 plus! I couldn't believe how thick it's back was had to be over 2 feet wide!

That’s a big one for the area. Surprised he had cutters. Most usually don’t around there.
