We bailed a lil early. School night (and stayed later than anticipated last night).
A 100# boar circled behind the feeder but never committed.

Another time....

I did video w my phone. I'll try to post links in a bit. I think he shot over them but can't really tell.

In the short time I spent with Ethan last year at nanza and from what I've seen in your threads... I don't think that boy has a bit of quit in him. No doubt in my mind, he's gonna get one.

Default Shaky video. Too much zoom.

^^^

Well, I think he kinda did ("hit one") ?

I looked at both arrows he retrieved, and on the ground where the pigs were (we got down while still light, kinda). Didn't see any blood.

But sure looks and sounds like he shot over the intended target and accidentally on purpose hit one in the hind leg?

My eyes are terrible, plus I was watching the phone, and him, to make sure he'd clear the window.

Happened fast (all but the arrow).

Y'alls thoughts?

I may have to go back to a 2 pin sight. 10-20 yds is a noticeable difference in his setup.
That way I can tell him "use top/green pin or bottom/red pin. ???

Default Bloodtrail

Found one arrow 40 yards in. Both pigs ran out on same trail and shot w same (type) arrow. Followed decent blood another 50 yds best we could In rain/thick stuff.
Still had blood crossing onto property we aint allowed access to.

Rain/dark/fence halted our efforts on that one.

Gonna check in morning on other.

Hes having a blast!

Kids got massive tracking skills (eyes).

Can't blame a guy for trying.

I'm betting at least one of those are laid up dead somewhere. Ethan is getting experience and building confidence, either way. He's going to get one sooner than later.

At 18” draw and his draw weight, it doesn’t matter a whole lot. Lol! We have customers leave/donate arrows for kids all the time. I’ll cut some and send em to y’all to tinker with if you’ll pm an address.

I didn't really think it matters at this point either, lol. Had some heads and arrows given to him already plus I bought a dz 85gr CoC heads.

I just aint got around to cutting em down & re-fletching. I have a saw & jig.

I do appreciate the offer though.

On another note.... Don't look like we booger'ed em off yet, & should've went this a.m.

Maybe this eve.....
