the other day I collected the skull of the hog I butchered in the woods, that was the one in the second video and on the right in the trophy shot.





even if shot at an angle you can see that the JSB .30 at 85 FPE did it's job real well

Thanks brother,

with the angle given to me by the porker I think that was as good as it gets :)

OOoog. I was eating lunch when I saw that greasy skull. Bleah.  :P

But nice shot placement. Really.

Very cool brother, my hunting properties here in NC already have had yote issues now the feral pigs are moving in too. Been hunting them using a xbow so I can get the chance at multiples. I am now looking at air guns to use with night vision optics....What do you feel is your maximum effective range ?

Thanks brother,

50 yards is very, very doable.


I need to take my Storm .30 out again, I got myself a Great Northen "Bushbow" and I've been having to much fun hunting with it lately :) :)

Nice job on the pig with a bow & string Manny 8)
What happened to the arrow head, did it break off in the pig?

I use wooden shafts,
yes about 10" broke inside the boar, I noticed that there was a cut on the opposite side, so the broadhead poked out that side but must have been pulled back as the boar run through vegetation and broke the shaft.

IIRC, you're on TradTalk.

Nice piggy with the bent-stick and string.  I haven't pulled any of my bows with any seriousness since Winter started, although I need to build some new arrows.

The shot placement with the RS .30 is perfect.  Since the 2nd came back to join its buddy in hog-heaven, are these pigs used to relatively loud ambient noise levels?

I'm not on Trad talk, I might have registered in the past but never contributed, was on Tradgang until I got banned :) :) ...Primitive @=S+S%^$# and Pirates of archery are 2 I used to frequent.

Hogs in this area are very skittish, there's some noise coming from a few valley away of Military shooting and choppers at times,....I think the low sound signature of an Airgun with an LDC didn't scare him much, and the fact that his brother was still hanging around :) made him confident he could come back

Great shot placement on both pigs. 

The white "tooth" on the one on the right... doesn't it look like a crocodile tooth in the pic? :)
