Capt,

Super nice. What bow?? Looks like a recurve to me.

I hear that the big boars are pretty much armor plated in the shoulder area.

Also if hit and wounded,will charge the archer?

Gosh,Florida seems to be a target rich environment with the wild hogs,Burmese Pythons,Nutria,Snake Head fish and who knows what else!!!!

The best bows, at the time, were Jennings. I owned (both) a "Shooting Star" and an "Arrow Star", set a 70 lbs. The shooting star was used on this trip (A 2-wheel cam bow). Razorbacks heads did the job. We also killed 4 with knives, trapped in a pen. Great times! 22 hogs in all.
Best, Capt. Chris

FYI, I started using cow preg test gloves that go up to your shoulder, when field dressing big game. You'll need a few rubber bands to hold them in place, but they work great.

Capt,
70 lb pull??yipes!!! Especially with a recurve!!

Although I have a Bear compound ( I call compound bows "bicycle" bows),I still tend to like the traditional archery stuff but not 70 lbs pull.

Jennings Shooting Star bows were "2-wheel" compound bows Wayne, i.e. 50% let off @ full draw. Jennings Arrow Star bows were "4-wheel" compound bows, i.e. 35% let off @ full draw.
Best, Capt. Chris

Capt,
Thank you for the information.

Some years back,I had my 3rd eldest grand-daughter fitted with a Martin Compound bow.

She was shooting carbon arrows and they seemed to just rip right by my Easton Aluminum arrows in mid flight!!

Right now,I am incorporating "bow exercises" with my weight routine so I can start to practice again with my Bear Whitetail II.
