Last nite to hunt, i get a nice tusker boar with the bow. I had to get back to LA by morning so after i did all the dragging and skinning and meat prepping i got in the car and headed for LA. got there 3AM and got a room. I am home now but beat, so i will post the story and a bunch of pictures tommorrow. I forgot my camera in the car so i didnt get a nice field photo of the second pig. I do have to say this, DO NOT BUY rocky mountain broadheads called revolution.
The first shot was with thier "snyper" tips. good hit, decent penetration. I found the pig still staggering and knocked up one of my 2 remaining arrows with "revolution" tips. The first shot went in about 2" and the second went in about 4". those things suck.
Anyway it was a 200lb+ boar(second pig). what a hoot.

Wow, a 250 lb boar, that sounds awesome. And you did it with the bow, that is awesome. Congratulations, can't wait for the pictures!
Hi guys,I had a big story and a lot of pics posted but changed it a bit to disquise the area a little because I didnt want anyone like outfitters and others in general to know the area due to poaching and tresspassers. I guess its really bad in that area with poachers and poor ethics with hunters. I just deleted the posts in respect for the landowners privacy and wish i knew there was such a population of un-ethicle hunters in the area before i posted anything. So now heres a few pics of both of my pigs and we will leave it at that. The sow was a gun kill and the boar was a bow kill. the tusks grew a little funky on the boar for some reason . i am guessing the weights but look at the photos and tell me what you think. For reference i am 6'1" and 230lbs
Bigtusker, your a pig hunter with your own land, do you have problems with poachers out there in the hollister area?
I guess now i heard it from a different landowner first hand i now know why you only do archery hunts. It sucks when idiots give other hunters bad raps, i wish we had more hunters with more brains. I guess there is a lot of late night hunters in Ca.
