Default Thursday Afternoon Version...What Happened Here?

I've received a couple of PM's asking for the latest episode, so here it is. Shot this 80 pounder on 5/29. I did not like what I saw on rewind of the video.

Soooo...what do ya'll think happened? Recovery? No recovery? Were my eyes playing tricks on me? Good blood? No blood? Still running or dead in 20? Looks too dang high to me. Or was it?

Let's hear your opinion. Head was Gravedigger Hybrid

I'm going to say, little blood because no pass thru, but dead in 40 yards.

He dead.

Elevated shot. Arrow penetrated all the way and tore up a bunch of stuff. Spotty blood until he broke the arrow off. Dead in 60.

tough to say. Shot was high, but so was the shooters height. Downward angle. May have got the far side lung. amybe both. figure he didn't run more than a 100 yards.

Shot is definitely a little high and I prefer a little farther back to assure lungs but…….I see a dead pig if not pushed inside 100 yards with a very light blood trail. Thanks for showing. Been a little boring lately.

After second review that shot isn’t as high as I thought. Pigs on the smoker I bet while your playin with us.

He dead. That arrow was coming down at a pretty steep angle. Probable had a decent blood trail too.

Ok my second guess. You burnt the pig on the smoker while spending too much time on the internet messing with our heads. What do I win?

I'ma gonna say because of the head you had some blood on the exit side. You got plenty of arrow in and out. Just not a pass through. Hit is in the upper 1/3rd of the body. Top of the lung, maybe. Shaft is gonna inhibit the blood through both holes though. But still gonna spotty bleed enough to track in daylight hours with that head. As to how far, that depends on how long it took the lungs to fill up. Smaller pigs with that head shouldn't have taken to long. I'ma gonna say you found it . If not, call me next time.

He made it 50 yards. Double lung(high,center) fantastic blood. If you can watch in 1080 or HD, you can see blood gushing before he exits. Y’all are good at this.

That one was pretty easy to see. Some of your others, not so much... Really enjoy these short clips and the way you show the slo-mo... Even so, sometimes it's hard to see what REALLY happened until you recover the animal... I've been surprised many time since 1995 when I first started videoing all my shots... I personally it's the best recovery tool an archer can have short of a VERY GOOD dog!
Thanks again for posting these.

Heck yeah Jeff. I also enjoy these please continue. It puts the hunter back into TBH.

How thick is the terrain 50 yards from that spot. Also why do those pigs seem so calm. My east tx pigs are constantly on the meth look out.
