    Default Big Pig Down!

    After 25 nights in total and a years worth of work, planning and trial and error I have the first big boar down, this big 90kg (200#) trophy boar. Taken square through the boiler room at 12.5 yards with my Elite Answer pushing a 950gr arrow tipped with a razor sharp 220gr Muzzy Phantom, it put this boar down in less than 80 yards.

    Thanks so much guys, yeah Stretch they do look great with those thick manes, what it really awesome is when they come in to the feed where others are and those hairs stand up, makes the damn thing look twice as big!
