What does everyone think u the magnus stinger for hogs? I had a buddy just get back from texas on a hog/javi hunt. He shot 2 javi's and bent 2 stinger heads. 1 blade and 1 ferrule. Its got me a little worried now. I have a hog hunt scheduled for early may at shilo.

Thanks Terry, great post...♠

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. TGMM ♥

Terry do you think you can pass through a shielded boar with a r/d longbow pulling 55# with a 620 grain arrow tipped with a 175 grn. VPA terminator?

not sure if this has been mentiuoned yet but Terry I know your a Fan of the single bevel Abowyers,,, just for info purposes how are the single bevel heads hitting that plate and will they spread the material and make it through?

when I went to Rays one fo the first things he taught me was the correct place to hit a boar and why,, later on I noticed he was a big fan of Grizzlys and I should of asked him this same question where I know he's got alot of boars.

Dang James, sorry for the late response.....yes, I would think you could if your head was SHARP and the animal was still at impact....but certainly enough to kill them for sure....look at Izzy's hogs on the Solana thread. Look at the shielded hog he killed(not passed through) with a 47# bow and a 650 grain arrow.


Tajue17....I'm a fan of the Aboyers because of the way they are built not for the single bevel. I've only killed one hog with a single bevel, and it was an Abowyer Large BoneBuster. It was a sow so no shield was involved....was a nich hog though....bout 150#s.

All of the shields I've passed through have been with 4 blades and couple with WWs But the biggest were passed through with 4 blade Zwickeys.

I just hit a big sow yesterday and thought it was a perfect shot from about 20 yards, tracked her for 2 hours and finally lost the blood trail. After inspecting my arrow that was broken, I realized that I only got about 9 inches of penetration. I was using a 200 grain stos, 2213 aluminum..total arrow weight of 550 grains, out of a 55 pound recurve that shoots hard. I couldn't believe it. Very disappointed. My broadhead was sharp but not razor sharp. I can get them to cut hair but not "pop" hair like I want. I don't know if that was the problem, but regardless, I will be trying 3 blades to see if I can sharpen them easier or I will be investing in a KME.
