    I shoot a monster at 60 lbs , a 385 grain gold tip pro hunter, going 311 fps . This past Friday I shot a 325 lb boar from a 16 ft tree stand at 25 yards. I aimed at the top of the heart, my arrow went clean through,plus through his opposite leg! I am impressed with the k energy of the Monster! He was slightly quartered away. He went 40 yards and died in less than ten minutes.From reading the other post sounds like I got lucky?

    I shot a hog in the shoulder and missed the vitels with a bow. My buddy shot a hog 2weeks later with a rifle and found my arrow broke off in the pig. My arrow stuck in the other shoulder and missed the spine by a 1/2″. All the pigs in the woods and we shoot the same pig! Crazy!

    Just killed a hog with my z7 extreme at about 50 yards away on the ground. I hit him in the shoulder the first shot and it sounded like i hit a tree haha, he turned and gave me another shot and the old slick trick broadhoad did the trick and went straight through the heart and killed him in his tracks. hah he wasnt a monster, but some GOOD EATIN !! haha

    I’ve read lots about making sure you shoot low on hogs, in fact I have found it to be the oposite, in fact, if you look at the anatomy diagrams here on this page, look at where the lungs are, more of the lungs are above midline than below, shoot at the heart all you want, I want the lungs! I’ve shot lots of these beasts here in Texas and the only ones I have not recovered are the ones I hit low, below midline of their body, I’m not an expert on hogs but have shot quite a few, and this has been my experience. If you have a good broadhead they are not as tough as some say, and if you get both lungs you will recover the animal period! but I would never shoot an expandable at a hog, say all you want about rage and others, but shoot them at a hog and see what happens. Most hog ranches in Texas will not allow expandables on their hunts, for good reason!

    You will not find many hog hunters that have killed a good number of big boars agree with the above comment. 8D

    A mature boar hog is pound for pound the toughest game animal in the United States.

    I shot a 265lb’er this year at 30yds. Tucked it right behind the front shoulder.

    If your looking for a good Texas hunt check out Big Woods in Tennessee Colony, TX. $900 for the week, includes food, lodge & all the Pigs you can shot. ($20 Skinning fee per pig) I don’t work for them or get anything for this just thought I would pass along a good deal.

    FYI I’m 6’6″ & 315lbs. The pig looks a little small next to me.
