Big Boar Down!

Snooks and I headed up to the lease Monday to try and get some work done on our foodplots. We left town at 3pm and drove onto the lease at 5:30pm! We wanted to try and sneak in a hog hunt while there. We geared up and headed to our stands hoping the hogs weren't already there. I was barely settled in my stand when I hear BOOOOOM!!!!!
I received a text message from Snooks saying "Big Sow Down!" He said they were already at his feeder when he got there.
I settled in hoping I would soon have some action myself. Wasn't long and I heard a branch snap! Then I heard footsteps in some water. Then it was quiet. I waited patiently. ::)
Then out of nowhere. There stands a Big Hog in the brush to my right!
He fed in the brush not giving me a clear shot for a while. Finally he came out in the clearing under my feeder. I waited until he was slightly quartering away and drew my bow. I settled the pin tight behind his shoulder and hit the trigger on my release. Whaaack!
The shot was perfect! ;D I could see blood spraying out as he tore out of there!
I waited till dark before getting down. Snooks came meet me and we found blood at the point of impact. The blood trail was easy to follow, blood was spraying everywhere. Even on the trees a foot off the ground! He went less than a hundred yards. My best hog ever! 245 pounds! :)
While trailing I found the shed antler you see in the picture. A great hunt!
Here is a video clip from my trailcam just before I shot him. I was hoping it caught the shot on film, but it wasn't to be. :'(

I shot him with a spitefire 100 3 blade. I usually use muzzy's on the hogs but I am out of them. Arrow went in low behind the left shoulder and stopped when it hit the other shoulder. No exit! But he bled like "a stuck pig"! lol

Congrats
Nice pig, Corey. Sounds like a memorable hunt. We haven't been able to make any hog hunts this spring on my place due to high water, but the water is receding. Shouldn't be long before they're back.

Looks bigger than 245. I have shot them with my bow and seen blood just blasting out of them like that, but I have not killed one that big yet. Congratulations on the hogs.
