    I got invited to a last minute pig hunt.

    Trying to decide which Bow to take.
    380 grain arrow, w/ 100 grain BH.
    Equally accurate with all of these, though I’ll give the edge to the SBXT

    Last time I shot a big boar, it as with a 71# Drenalin.
    It blew right though and dropped ‘em.

    is a 60# bow too light for a boar?

    Big boars have ben shot with alot less bow then what you have, anyone will do just fine. As long as your shot placement is correct. On big hogs just don’t shoot them in the side armor. the best way I have found is quartering towards me, and drill them right in front of the shoulder.

    For Lil Shacks 10th birthday I took him to a game preserve to go pig hunting. At the time I was worried because he was only shooting 32lbs. He was shooting 4 blade Muzzy broadheads and by the end of the day had killed two boar. One was 100lb. and the other was 120lb. The first hog he shot the broadhead was sticking out the opposite side. I know the pigs size played alot in this role but it kind of shows you that all that poundage is not really needed. It’s more about shot placement ;) Here is a short video several years ago of the birthday boy in action. :^O
