Opening morning hog

Unread postby JakeB » Sat Oct 03, 2020 2:20 am

This guy snuck up on me opening morning and I dropped the hammer on him. It’s my first kill with the iron will wides and I’m pretty happy with them. Although I do like a nice 2” expandable cut, it was a pretty descent hole in and out. He was quartering to me and I slipped the arrow through his front shoulder and it came out the bottom of his stomach. He had a good 1” thick shield too, so I was happy with penetration. Ran about 50 yards and blood was descent for a large hog. They never really bleed like a deer. Ran the broadhead over some leather, spun it and it’s back in the quiver.

I actually thought he was a nice succulent 50 pounder when I shot him for some reason. He’ll still eat though.

That is a good one :clap: .
I live to release an arrow and watch woods grow into chaos and then grow quite as a mouse in just seconds.
