Congratulations Steve, well done! Yep, Bisch is a fine tracker all right, but I suspect Zeke helps him out now and then.

Just back from a great extended weekend at London Oaks Ranch.
This trip brought up a few firsts: first axis doe, first kills with a recurve and first time using carbon arrows.
My shot on the axis was low and Zeke saved the day by tracking her quite a long way after we gave her a few hours to die in peace.


The boar came in the following day and I was blessed with likely the best shot I ever took on a game animal: slightly quartering away, right in the crease behind the leg. He only went a hundred yards or so and Bisch tracked him easily and Zeke had no trouble to follow that trail.

He was a cranky old boar and I was grateful the arrow and broadhead performed flawlessly.
This was the kind of weekend good for the soul.
So very grateful for the friends who made it possible.

Its been quite a while since Ive logged on here. Managed to kill a pig on our annual hog hunt. It was the 8th year weve hosted it and Id be lying if I said I wasnt more excited about the fellowship than the hunting!

Was late dropping my friend and pastor off at his blind and by the time I got to mine this little fella was foraging at my feeder. It hadn't spun yet but he was circling.
I've shot over this guy twice in the last six weeks. Then two weeks ago I shot low on his brother. Clipped his brisket and broke his offside leg. Guess he was coyote bait because they weren't together this morning.
I snuck in as close as I dared and knelt near a small tree. I started drawing as he cleared some tall grass and he caught me. But he started to relax and looked down so I drew, anchored and let fly.
He did turn to go at the bow thump but the arrow caught him square in the shoulder.
He never got out of the clearing. 22 yard shot with my Martin Mamba and a 30 yard recovery.
Little sucker cost me another broken arrow though.Name:  20220308_075819.jpg

Addendum.

Funny turn of events. The pig I shot was the pig I shot two weeks ago. I pulled the broken Beaman Centershot 340 with Carbon Express head on it out of him. It had gone through the shoulder but I guess he had jumped and the broadhead was just out of the skin on the upper neck in front of the offside shoulder. Have no clue how it didn't kill him.
Today's arrow was a Black Eagle Vintage 400 with a 100 grain head and 50 grain insert weight. Hit just in front of shoulder and angled in through both lungs.
In the pics you can see the wound holes from the first arrow. It was weird because when I walked up on it I saw that head sticking out and thought I had used a different arrow. Heck I didn't even have any with those heads in the quiver.

Been a bit since I got on a hog! This was an cool hunt using a spur of the moment phone app! I called this boar in using a fighting hog sound from a app on my phone. He came running in from 150-200 yards out and barley gave me time for a shot! When I turned the light on he was close to my ground scent and one or the other put him on edge. He gave me a hard quartering away shot at 23 steps and it worked out for a 70 yard recovery. 49# Bob Lee Shikari and a 564 grain DaySix arrow/head set up.

Congrats on the hogs. DRT, I am curious about the big black one with the ear tag in its ear. Is that your tracking hog?
