Default Another Edition of...”What Happened Here?” Let’s Play

I shot this pig last night around 7:30 pm. He had gotten a little too comfy eating my corn, so I snuck in and waited on him.

The video is partially skewed by foliage, but certainly enough to make a call on the result. So, let’s hear what you think happened here.

Mathews VXR31.5(29/62) 475 gr. Easton Injexion, Bloodsport Gravedigger Hybrid, green nockturnal

Is he dead?
Is he still running?
Will he be back?
How far did he go if I found him?
What vitals were hit?
Shot too high?
Shot too low?
How much penetration did I get?
Lots of blood?
Little to no blood?

Whatcha think?

In case this is your first time to play...this is an exercise in how the eyes can be deceived or in some cases maybe not. Either way, let’s see what you think happened. I will show the results (or the lack there of) at some point tomorrow.

And GO!!

High shoulder into the scapula. Not much blood and not for very far. You didn't find him. Probably be back.

I'm thinking the same, but he got the top of a lung.....
Not much blood, but found him.
Hard to say though, to me it's hard to make out much in the video.
You can definitely see the pig dropping and starting to roll, but for some reason I'm thinking the arrow is coming in much lower than what it appears in the video...

I am guessing it hit the shoulder, does not look like it penetrated very deep. He definitely heard it coming, he tried to duck that arrow. I am guessing he has played that duck/dodge the arrow thingy game before, it worked in the past. Because if was able to show up that day. I would say the arrow did get enough penetration, it could easily kill him, higher possibility if it's not a mechanical broadhead.

Probably not going to bleed much externally, if it did not hit lungs on impact, as he runs through the brush, if that's a fixed blade broadhead, he probably will have a lot more damage as he starts hitting brush it that arrow.

I can't tell where it hit, other than close to the shoulder and a bit rear. I can't tell how high. It looks a little high, but it likely has potential to end his making bacon bits.

Shot wasn't enough to kill him at first. When you tracked him in the dark he turned on you and chased you up a tree. Pig waited you out thinking he was going to get some revenge. Sadly ole white flippy tail pig dies from his wounds waiting for you to come down. However, you thought he was still alive because he died laying upright. At 4pm today the swollen gut rolled him over on his side and you finally got down which is why we are just getting this story and video tonight.. Dead pig...saw him at 50 yards wounded but he chased you 25 yards closer to the feeder up the tree and died there. so 25 net.. What did I win?...

Is that an expandable tip? Shot looked pretty good but didn't get much penetration...... I think you may have gotten a lung but it's going to take another arrow with a 125 grain fixed blade to get into his other lung!! Or a 223 round to the ear to finish him off!!

Broad head contact was midway up the body right at the back of the shoulder. Dead under 100 yards. May not have had a lot of blood early but last 30 yards of track was a stream.

I’m no expert so if I’m right it’s lucky if I’m wrong it’s expected!

I think it’s a high shot behind the shoulder. Doesn’t look like it got good penetration. The pig lives to eat your corn another day, but his days are numbered!

1. You hit him right where you were aiming, cause you never miss.

2. You found him within 100 yards.

3. You need to bring your weed eater out there and do some weed whacking.

Looking again on my phone and stopping the video, it looks like a high neck shot just in front of the shoulder. Never found him. No blood trail either.

Shot was higher than desired in the 11/16 area. During penetration the broad head went down and poked into the opposite side shoulder. No blood for 25 yards and what you found was very small specs. After waiting for him to expire, you found him 90 yards away.

I saw a high entry shot, higher than desired because he ducked the string. However, you hit either lung or heart or an artery because he was squirting blood in those first few steps. Dead inside 100 yards is my guess

Shot was high, but not to high, clipped lungs. 150yds, dead pig. If it hit the big artery under the spine, he didn't make it over 75yds.

I don't think the shot was as high as people are thinking. Look at angle of arrow and factor in, the length of arrow as to where you see lume nock.

My guess is lung and heart
Dead within 50 yds
Can't tell much but didn't look like arrow came out off side, so blood trail won't be much.

All my opinion, that and $1.00 gets you a cup of coffee at QT.

No exit, higher entry makes me think blood trail was sparse

I am thinking double high lung and dead within 150yds but maybe too hard to track and you didn't recover?

Looks like shot came from higher than the camera but could be decieving. I am thinking caught the top of far lung, and good chance caught the top of the near lung as well. Blood sucks first 30-40 yds picks up and between 15-200 yds dead pig.

Put me in the "smoked him" camp. Arrow is moving from top to bottom and slight left to right in the video frame so I think broadhead impact could be slightly lower and further forward than it appears. Don't need a ton of penetration to kill them anyways. I'll guess dead under 100. He got out of there quick

Angle is much steeper than the camera angle. Entered in high behind the shoulder. Penetrated to almost the vanes of the arrow. Destroyed both lungs and heart. Weak blood trail in first 10 yards, then it opened up. Found him within 35 yards dead as
A doornail.

Looked a little high, but I could see blood. I think the angle was good enough to hit lungs and possibly heart. Dead pig probably 60 yards away.

The impact looks high but after he takes a few steps, it looks like you hit him in the boiler room. I'm going with dead pig after 50 yards or so...

High lung shot minimal blood but dead pig is my guess. Yes shot looked high to me. Without video I think I may have chalked it up to a bad shot. Total guess.

I think the entry was really high but due to the angle of shot you caught the off side lung. Coin toss on whether he's dead and you found him.

Ok some of y’all were 100 percent correct. Some saw what I thought when I saw it in person. (That I blew it)

Great blood from impact all the way to a dead pig found at 100 yards.



Arrow hit a tad high...





Caught lung. (Yotes helped with a dissection) 13” off arrow broke off in him.





Thanks for playing along.

I didn't see FND's post on the find (I promise) but I think the shot looks a bit high but was able to catch a lung, had a great blood trail where he found the hog. He might have found some of the arrow that broke off in him-I'd say about 13" and he might have had the coyotes move in on him before he found him.

Just my thoughts, can't wait to read his post on the find.
