    It's been a while since I've chased hogs with my bow, too long...I had to make a run to OK and stick some pigs. Waited till Mid April so turkey season would open up and I could do both. Turns out, it wasn't an ideal time as the new growth had the pigs all spread out...

    I was able to connect on this sow, found the group and stalked in close, took me 30 mins to maneuver for a shot, they came back my way and passed by at 19 yds. I had my single pin MBG sight set for 30 and forgot to hold low, dang near screwed it up! ;)

    Xpedition Xcursion 6, Innerloc EXP BH, BE Spartan arrows. Blew clear through, looked for the arrow for 20 mins, could NOT find it...hog ran 30 yds and started flopping.

    Shot a younger boar with the Innerloc Shape Shifter head. Been wanting to test this one for a while now. Worked pretty well, hit bone and cartilage, was very hard to pull back out.

    Killed a nice small meat hog at 35 yds the last night. WASP Jakhammer, pounded right though, hog made it 25 yds or so. Found that arrow also..

    Backstraps and hind quarters went in the cooler.

    Thanks guys, if they're happy , I'm happy! Sticking hogs is one of my favorite pastimes. Think I could do it every day if I had the means.
