Thanks Guys,

same as hog hunting with a break barrel I will not make a habit of this,....I've done the testing that told me about the capability
and I took them in the field to prove the the testing in real life situation.

Testing proved to translate just fine in the field, but again, this was, as well as the break barrel hunt, a one time off.

Hey Manny I know about those old shoulder injuries, my cure was to refilled my self bows down in weight and I mean down. 50 to 43. Killed a hog with 50  pounder and zwickey 2 blade pass through. Also changed my shooting style to a quicker snap shooting style.just as accurate at the real true bow hunting ranges of 15 to 20 yrds. I am not telling you anything you already know but my own experience of shooting sticks for about 55 years. How about that pumper hog😁😁😁😁😁.    Wolfer

you know what ? I've actually been checking out those pumpers lately, can get them pretty darn cheap on Amazon Prime,.....but I definitely think this is as low as I want to attempt shooting at a hog, done with the NP2 and now Disco, time now to start hunting again with a proper PCP :) ....new gun should be in in not too long.

Good for you Manny. New guns are a exciting adventure. I like cleaning a barrel for the first time, tighting screws, fooling with different pellets,getting sight pictures right with drop and pitch in stock. Cool stuff like that, but still think a pumper hog would be big medicine for you. To bad we can,t take big game in CA.    Wolfer

OK, so yesterday I was in the area and went to see if I could find the skull, it was sooo muddy down there and I wasn't sure I was going to be able to find it, but luckily I did.

Didn't look much for the jaw part and I left without it, in the pictures I used a lower from an other skull I have.

The tiny hole from the 10.5gr Baracuda is well defined.

Thanks,
 I use the one that Bullfrog sells, they are intended to be used for the camera to record through the scope, but I flip it around and I have the camera above the scope

any interest in the Airbow?
http://www.pyramydair.com/s/m/Benjamin_Pioneer_Airbow/3894


It was offered to me, and I did think about it for a little while.

I probably can still get Crosman to send me one for reviewing, but being an archer/bowhunter I'm conflicted on the product, it goes against all I believe in Archery.

To shoot an arrow at that speed you are forced to use Broadheads that I don't believe into, also I see archery as a Silent endeavour
