Well not as great a story but Ill tell you all what me and nephew did yesterday. Got in stands about 1000am (hunting the lunar tables 12-2) around 1130 had a Bobcat at about 30 yards, he caught me at 3/4 draw but I let one fly anyway missed by a inch. Didnt think much of it but I wanted to move my stand anyhow. About then nephew had big boar run past him, no shot. 330pmish He had a doe at 60 yards never got into his range. 500pm Im starting to wonder whats up here! 8 hours gets ruff on the lower back, stand stretch for the last hour or so. Sit back down watch the squirrels for a bit. 600pm hear what sounds like a truck come through the woods YEA Im thinkin hear comes a hog. hog wasnt the word more like "HAWG" big 250 300lb boar headed right to me ...I stand and start my draw he stops...in the perfect spot 25 yrds...I come on to full draw on him...bout that time he starts moving I put it on the front of his shoulder let it fly....thump! He heads straigh towards Newphew. I YELL big hog comin at ya! Then I hear thump!..."I hit him!"
I get down round up my arrow...semi bloody wet...."gut shot".....Newphews arrow no exit heard it splapping bushes for a bit when hog left us. About 60 yards find half of his arrow Good foamy blood...We got a chance of finding this big fellow.
Call buddy bring the lights we got one to trail, he says on my way...we round up stands and equipment while we wait...we are a mile deep in the woods(SWAMP) here so had time waiting on lights.
We trailed for about 300 yards and he made it to the big creek all hope was lost...it rained all week and the creek was up so had no choice but give up.
Just a day in the woods!
Got a phone call shortly after posting this seems nephew went home and got in a tree on the back 40, took a 6 point sunday afternoon Ill post a pic if I get one!
