    Congrats to Jason on his new venture and please keep those tuffheads coming  ( my favorite broadhead). Is Jason going to keep the meathead also ? I like that head for some of my wood arrows. A BIG THANKS to Joe for providing the tuffhead initially and up till now. Joe is always great to deal with. A great asset to the traditional Archery fraternity. I hope all you guys keep us posted on future events.

    Mom and TJ have a wonderful trip. I know I would – having enjoyed hanging out in Paris a few times myself.

    Great to have you back Col. –Thanks for the info—-

      Raymond (scout) Yes keeping the meat head, plans to provide a package with whatever weight tuff head with matching field point and blunt all with adapters already attached unless you want them for woods and glue on yourself. Because initially it was my idea Wojo immediately drafted me to help—so as soon as this broken ankle heals and the cast comes off–the plan is for me to visit him on weekends and help with packaging, mailing, sweeping the place you know things I can handle without messing it up—and to be clear I am a volunteer–he said if I can prove myself with little supervision he would consider minimum wage in maybe a year or so. No respect these young folks. All joking aside Linda and I are as excited as his wife (Heather) and daughter (Olivia). I will try to keep the forum informed without violating mom’s guidance on advertising. Although in the past she was pretty quick to delete my comments.

      Semper Fi and have a great new year

    Best of luck Jason on your new venture and to Joe on his second retirement. Maybe Joe will be able to spend more time with the grandkids.

    Glad to see Tuff Head will be carried on; congrats to the new owner.  Must confess to some selfish concern over the possible end of the road in talking to Mr. Furlong by phone a few months ago as I placed an order for some more of those great broadheads. (By the way, that’s what I used for the avatar boar.)

    Nice pigs ! A favorite quarry of mine. I also like the tuffhead ( and hunt with it). I have been experimenting recently with the meathead, but havn’t taken any game with it as yet. Although I can’t help but chase a big pig if I see one, anymore I mostly prefer to take eating pigs *, like your second pic.

    Where do you hunt them CA, TX , Florida?  What tackle are you using in the pic?

    *but mostly their easier to haul back home.

    Col Mike and Wojo, congratulations on this new venture. It deserves someone like yourself who will give it proper attention. Joe is a real gentleman. I’m glad that aspect of the business will continue. All the best! David

    Scout:

    Thank you, sir. Just saw your post.  Those hogs were killed in Texas — specifically, Fairfield, Texas, at 3Fingers Bowhunting.  That’s about 90 miles south of Dallas and 60 miles east of Waco, if that helps.  🙂

    As far as the tackle:

    Shooting with a 73#@28 custom Jay Weathers 3-piece take-down recurve (my DL about 27″, so, maybe pulling 68 pounds) .  Arrows are 680-grain 400 spine Warrior carbons left close to full length (trimmed to about 31-1/4″ to back of exposed insert.  FOC is about 27%, with the 400 grains up front (100-grain brass insert, 225-grain Tuffhead two-blade with 75-grain adapter).

    As you can see from the blood-matted fletchings, the set-up got a complete pass-through on the small pig.  The big one was 238 pounds and ate just fine. The shot on him was hard quartering away from 15 yards, and penetrated about 1/2″ of his gristle “shield” to get heart and lungs and stop at the off leg.  He went about 100 yards, trailing buckets of blood and was doornail dead when we got to him a few minutes later.

    Looks like a great set up and is obviously working well for you.

    I really enjoy hunting pigs and do it any chance I get. Mostly in Texas these days. I have hunted feral hogs in CA, NM and Texas. Javelinas in AZ , NM and Texas. Always a good time!
