Default Brace yourself!!!…. A BOWhunting thread

I got hogs…. I gots lots of hogs.

Been preparing for deer season and a draw hunt this year. Got a few new gadgets and just got my new scentlok early season gear in (awesome stuff by the way). Every place I got, feeder or not is still infested… and daylight movement. After 201 confirmed dead… more show up.

Got a pic today of a Poland/China at the dairy, last 2 evenings at 7:00. So at 6:40 I go up a tree to try and make him dead.
Parked atv at red x and went to stand.
Blue is normal and expected hog entry
Purple is wind direction
Yellow….

For whatever reason I looked to my left and caught movement! A black boar, not on camera was crossing a wide open freshly bailed field ( bedded in creek) and attempted to wind check where I use to hunt

Didn’t take 2 minutes and I could see a sapling getting violated and then… entered my opponent!

Took forever to get him into a position where my non adult, hyperactive teenage arrows wouldn’t just bounce off of him, but he eventually rounded the last obstacle at 12.5 yards…. Just inside my effective range!

I found the thickest, widest part of the shoulder and sent my last muzzy phantom on a crash course!…. And he took it like a MAN! Yonder he went….

I didn’t hear anything… then looked across a gap and seen him grab 5th gear crossing another field and was gone.

“Well… that ain’t looking good”

I didn’t have much hope at all after seeing that dash. But my placement was to the .0001” of where I wanted it. And obviously I wasn’t going to target anything big with these flappers, so I was puzzled by seeming lack of penetration

I waited a few and figured I can knock off 120 yards of tracking easily. And would go mark and track tomorrow… if anything to track. My arrow was broke and laying less than 10 yards on trail. Soaked…. Hmmm

I cut across to where I saw him run and I swear you can see this blood trail from google earth. There was blood flowing in field !

The blood trail was at least this good from arrow for 150 yards.He was leaking like a big block Chevy . Once I got to wood line where I last saw him, the trees were painted and 20 yards in was #202 this year. Seems the pressure was more than he could bare…

Drug him out with atv and got some pics and did autopsy to see what did what. Cut his aorta completely into.

That’s awesome. Great write up. How the heck did he run that far pouring out like that?

All I can figure is he had 2 seemingly working lungs and a pumping heart…. He ran out of blood in that 150ish yard dash from that 1 small hole. He so clean cause I drug him over 1/2 mile. Lol

Love the write up. Great job. After deer season if you ever get desperate enough to need dogs to move those hogs out just let me know. Once again loved the write up.

Good read right there. Thank you.

That is a big nasty, but kinda cool looking.

Dad gum, you are my hero! You kill a lot of pigs!

I shot a big hog like that several years ago. Clipped his heart and lungs. He bled just like that and ran over 200 yards, just like yours.

Congrats on that porker!
