Crossbow

Reply
Just bought a crossbow a barnett raptor fx. Was wanting you use it for hog hunting. Was wondering if anyone knew if this would be a good choice and if there was anything I might would need to do to it to make it better for hog hunting?

Great weapon ....Rabbit should try rather then commenting... I use a Excalibur and hunt + Kill Hogs all the time with mine.. I would recommend the Rage 2 bladed extreme (Broad head is Yellow colored) 2.3 cutting !!! but when you hit them it puts a 5' slice through them.. Fast Kill the last two I killed all the guts burst out the entrance hole..Hogs ran 20 yds and dropped Crossbows kill the hogs better then my compound bow.and put a bigger hole then my 444 or my 45-70 rifles.. Get a broad head target and practice with the practice heads Rage makes...

Good luck

...just use precision shots like SH...stay away from shoulder,hip and stomach shots and hunt a cut-over w/high stumps to climb on !!!...if he runs wounded and you track him...they been known to back-track and come up from behind'ya...just don't forget'ya rear view mirror...cheers ???
