Bushpig At Last!
Sometime ago I wrote how difficult and challenging hunting Bushpig with a bow can be; well after trying for a long time I eventually managed to outwit this difficult character and Oh what a feeling it was!
I eventually managed to bag one this month at 18 yards from a tree stand. It was a well placed double lung shot and the pig managed 20m before expiring. I can tell you that I have shot elephant, buffalo, hippo, etc. but I have never experienced the same kind of "rush" that I did after bagging this Bushpig with my bow. I was shaking so much that I thought I was going to fall out of the tree, not something I as an experienced PH likes to admit, but its fact!
If you like a challange I can highly recommend hunting Bushpig. You need to work hard, and have plenty of patience, if you want to hunt them properly, but all the time and effort is well worth it when you do bag one!
