LOW,LOW,LOW!!!! On thee bigger pigs when hunting with a bow you should shoot a little on the low side. I was hunting in texas, It was my first pig hunt ever and I had a 300lb boar plus or minus crawl through a hole in the fence that I was set up on. It presented a perfect 20 yard broadside shot, at the time I was drawing 70lbs using a 3 blade wasp fixed (+1 for fixed blade pig hunting), I shot him for what I thought was a good kill shot(like on the many deer kills) but the arrow didn't pass through. He was one pissed off pig, he jumped around and was determined to find what or who smacked him( thak God for good camo and poor eyesight of pigs because there are no trees to climb in south texas) when he didn't see anything he took off down the dirt road never to be seen again. When I looked for a blood trail I only found the tail end of my arrow, 8" of my arrow was gone with cartilage in the hollow portion of the rest of my arrow and not a drop of blood to be found. Also when you bucher pigs be carefull nt to cut yourself on broadheads tha have broken off in the animal from a previous missed oportunity' the wound will scar over and you wont even know there's a blade inside.
