What an education I got from this thread! I hope to hunt hogs in the future. I will remember to check back here once I can group my shots in that space.

Good pictures and good advice for others to follow. The shield of a wild boar is something else.I shot one years ago in Louisiana, and you couldn't stick an ice pick through the shield. Shot placement as explained here is the best example I have seen posted.only other choice is to brain one, only when it is a half to, kill or get cut up. Choice you may have to make.JERRY HILL...

I have hunted all types of game over the years.the hunting of hogs has always been my favorite. It offers all the challenges and dangers that one could hope for. They desire great respect and an archer should hunt them with the up most respect. It be wise for an archer who is going for the first time to read and study them well. Knowing their behaviours will prepare one for one of the GREATEST adv adventures to be had. Never ever take anything for granted when hunting wild hogs. If one let's their guard down for one second, is When you may find yourself in trouble. Always when making a shot, renock another arrow quickly, because a downed boar may not be quite dead yet.JERRY HILL....

Is 50 lb draw enough for hog hunting? I'm just getting into traditional archery. I live in Texas, so once I get my accuracy to an ethical level I would love to go get some hogs!

I'm practicing with a #45 pound bow, but I have a 50# Super Kodiak that I plan on hunting with.

Yes, it sure is. Make sure you got great arrow flight and sharp heads.

This has been an invaluable thread!

This shot was on a little 100# boar. Shooting down hill and a slight 1/4 away. Got the top and back of the lungs. Arrow went all the way through and was hanging by the fletch. He only went about 40 yd.

Spruce arrow with 175g Grizzly Instinct 3 bld, about 625g.
