Very cool! I knew it would happen for you.

But……..don’t always expect it to be that easy!!!!

Congrats on your first. I bet the hook is set a little deeper now, huh?

And you need to give us more info about how it went down!

Driving in at 645 there were pigs across our food plot fence. I was 30 yds from fence, pigs same distance on other side.

5 min til feeder spun so went back to take a seat. Just as I sat, it spun. 6 hogs came in b4 it quit spinning.

Got excited/was shocked and wasn't ready. Finally got arrow knocked, stood up, and gave a 75# sow a hair cut @ 22 yds.

Big ones kinda spooked but the 30#ers stayed. Watched em for a couple beers then punched 1 @ 18 yds. 10 yd recovery.

They might have hoops & hollern, but that is always a good sound to hear! You're already ahead of the curve anyways! Lol

Default Crazy.

Didn't recover.

Wish I had video. Y'all would flip out over this scenario, lol. Was crazy! Had my grandson w me.

Waited too long for recovery w little light. Ethan said low hit. I thought heart shot!
We met at feeder at same time. We were trying to get to our spot but feeder spun & they came a running. We ducked behind a tree and played it out from there.
All this is after pulling up on them in the food plot and tryn a stalk. Action packed, for sure, lol.

Had good blood via cell phone light for 25 yds. Limb bout gave me trachectomy and light fading. Shorts & loafers. Thick dead cedar. Elected to maybe pursue later..

Skrs on fdplt at arrival again! Had em at <10 yds but needed 5 more steps for shot.
Parked trk 40 yds from them. They eased off wrong direction. So I went to feeder & they showed just b4 dark.
