Default Rhino of a Boar Takes An Arrow

I hadnít hunted this setup recently for multiple reasons. Decided the wind was perfect, so I committed to it. This group showed up early.



I trailed him for about 100 yards and jumped him. Decided to give up since the last thing I need to do is tangle with a pig while Iím taking 2 different blood thinners. Lol.

My apologies for the crappy video. My camera mount just would not cooperate. Needed it to move just a tad higher but it was a no go.

A few blood pics and bedded down spot.

The way he was staying close to that sow I'd bet there'll be another to take his place very soon, maybe more than one.

Dang! That's a whopper. Looks like you hit him a little back maybe? Hard to tell on the video. Dead piggy, either way.

Good thinking Jeff. My uncle takes blood thinners for a artificial valve he has and still regularly hog hunts with his dogs. He looks like he’s bleeding to death just from pushing through a briar patch!!

Sucks you weren’t able to get him recovered. That was a good one

Nice pig Jeff. Don't let it get in your head though. After a while you'll get all the changes sorted out. For me the first couple of nasty cuts that didn't bleed me out made me a lot more brave about what I could handle even with blood thinners and aspirin. You'll get there. Just stay in the game and keep killing them pigs.

agree completely with not pushing in after it, especially given the blood thinners, they are not pleasant to be around unless they are dead

but to me, he looked very fat and healthy, I would have cleaned him for sure and unless the meat had a bad smell, he would be eaten.

I don't eat every hog I kill since some of them are harder to find and some look bad when i walk up on them.

But the best wild hog i have ever had was a 275lb boar that looked just like that one. he had 3-4 inches of fat on his back and on his belly.

I just had the pork chops off him 4 nights ago and they were tender, flavorful and had a great fat cap on them.


not looking to lecture anyone on whether they should eat or leave their hogs, that is your choice.
I am just suggesting to give these bigger boars that are fat and healthy a chance, they just might surprise your taste buds and fill your belly.

Was thinking a shotgun would have been good on the piglets and when that guy stepped out my jaw dropped. Iíve shot a big boy like that once that gave me a similar blood trail with no pig until it crossed the property line. Should have taken the shot at 2:17 and that would have solved the problem too.
