I also think the shot was high. It was very close and I thought I was looking low enough but probably not. The arrow was bloodied up 24" of the shaft and he carried it a long way before it broke. Still scratching my head a bit but yea, I think it was a bit high.

I really thought once we found that arrow we would find the hog. After I got back home I took this photo of all the arrows from that week.

Not much to tell. The first shot was a center-punch and the hog let out a squeal and was anchored to the ground. After 2 seconds it rolled over and then started kicking, after the hours of tracking that morning I was not about to give it the chance to get up so a second shot into the vitals was executed to prevent any chance for tacking.

Looking back at the video there were a couple larger hogs I wish I had zeroed in on instead but there were so many piglets running around in that group I wanted to make sure I did not take a wet sow. Sorry it wasn't more meat for you Thom. [Frown]

I would kill a wet sow in a heartbeat. It is tough to put a dent in their numbers with a tradbow. Great job, Steve.

Hope this doesn't break any rules but if anyone wants to see a video of the first hog there is a link below to the video. The camera housing amplifies every noise when handling the bow. I started to remove or reduce the sound from the video but if you listen you can hear the hogs grunting which I thought was too cool to remove.

I will post a link to the second hog in the next few days. (Vimeo limits uploads)

The stories make me wish even more that I could have made the trip to be there with you. Wow! You guys had a lot of action. Congratulations to all.

I'm itching like crazy to get there again soon.

Thanks all!

I was listening to Steve tell the story about he he got that last hog in the skinning shed: "I pinned it to the ground on the first shot, then I put a second arrow through the vitals."

I found myself wondering where he might have learned this technique???
