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.
