Report (by Mark Dillow)
Kevin and I were hunting our lease, when at right about 6:30 AM I heard Kevin shoot 3 times with his .44. Probably 30 seconds later two pigs ran into my feeder and started eating, but didn’t seem spooky at all. I drew the bow, but it was still dark enough that it was hard to make out anything more than a black blob. And of course they don’t stand still very long. So I waited maybe a minute to get the broadside I wanted on the larger of the 2 pigs and let fly. It was still so dark I couldn’t see the arrow’s flight, so I wasn’t sure how well I had hit her. I could hear the arrow hit home, but wasn’t for sure on the placement.
I wasn’t about to go tromping after her without some big caliber backup, so I waited in the stand until 9:30 in hopes that a buck would come in (never saw any deer though…I think it was too windy (15-20 mph) and that takes away their 2 main defenses, scent detection and hearing, so I think they just were hunkered down).
When I did start tracking, it was obvious I hat hit her hard – the blood trail was massive. She ran maybe 50 yards from where I hit her. Ronnie told me about the Rage broadheads, and I am sold on their performance.

Bible verse of the day

You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.
