We have talked a little bit about the hog epidemic here in the South.
We know they are running over our farm land which opens the door for more hunting opportunities. I do love putting the shank down on them. They are a very tough animal. In this hunt, you will see how tough Black Eagle Arrows are.
So the day I got home from our group hunt, my wife is wanting to go to the woods and see if we can get into some hogs. I told her that if check the camera, and if any pigs were showing up, that we would go. I went and switched cards out on my game camera. When I put the card in, I was in disbelief of the number of hogs coming to my feeder. I showed my wife, and we planned a hunt for the next evening.
So that next evening we put on our camo and loaded the truck with bow and video camera. My wife is fairly new to the archery world so she wanted to film. We got set up and I was explaining that there was a small white one in the group that I didn’t want to shoot. The white one made the hogs easy to see when they came out of the timber. As we set there anxiously waiting, Boom! Here come the white devil with several partners in crime. My wife readied the camera as I tried to decide which pig to try and harvest. While sitting there, one of the hogs stood out to me. He started helicoptering us with his tale ( as seen on film ). With the video rolling I drew back in anticipation that he would present a shot. Sure enough, the hog turned broadside and presented the vitals. I placed my pin on the deadly V, took a deep breath, released a black eagle arrow and Boom! We waited about 45 minutes and started to track the hog. upon tracking we actually found blood from two hogs. After reviewing the video the arrow made a clean pass through and hit the second hog. I was able to recover the first hog about 50 yards from impact, the second hog was recovered about 120 yards in the thick of the woods. This was a great hunting trip that i got to spend time with my wife and she did a phenomenal job behind the camera. I’m looking forward to many more days hunting with the woman i love.
Check out the video below and let us know what you think? Until next time, shank on!
