Fine bird, Stix….congrats. I bowhunted for turkeys a few times this season, but I got my limit with a shotgun. I have no qualms about hunting turkeys with a shotgun…in fact I prefer it. I get the same googly-eyed, heart-hammering, freak out experience with turkeys regardless of the weapon I’m holding.:D:D

Stone point screwed into carbon arrow. It’s like hitching your Lamborghini to a horse and pulling it though town. It’s like dressing your supermodel wife in a feed sack.
It’s a smidge psycho if you ask me. Before buying this, a person should sit down with their inner yoda and have a pow wow.

I like it…..Yeah, the sponsor signs at the beginning were a little goofy, but still better than the way most “hunting vids” bash you over the head with product placement b.s. There have been a few videos like this lately that are thoughtfully done and quite enjoyable to watch.
I sort of keep up with her and her family via these here interwebs. I think she could make a good spokesperson for what we all love to do.

The Woodsman was a gift from a friend, and I liked the long sleek look of it, so thought I’d give it a shot. I’ve shot two blades exclusively since going trad, mostly Magnus 1’s. I don’t know how much of the sparse blood trail was due to the head, or if it was the hit. The shot was maybe a little high, and the pig was very fat, which reduces blood as well. It’s only one shot, but overall I was pleased with the head. But for the most part, I still prefer my two blades….certainly if going after anything bigger.
Dave, Desoto passed through this swamp back in the 1500’s with a bunch of pigs in tow. The old story holds that they are the descendants of escapees from his pigs (imagine herding pigs through a thick swamp in chain mail dodging arrows!). In reality, folks have been raising, losing, and releasing pigs in the south for a long time. I’d imagine these hogs are a genetic buffet, with most being black but other color combinations are pretty common too. They are really an ideal critter to hunt with a trad bow….big game, but if you can beat their nose, you stand a decent shot at being able to sneak into range. And like you said, they are delicious.
