This is an unedited video of a March 2010
Tennessee boar hunt. This was an archery hunt and the hunter was using a
compound bow. The camera operator was another boar hunter from the
archers hunting party.
It had been raining cats & dogs for a while and
the hunters were getting a little cold, and a lot wet. We took shelter
out of the weather under a bluff line where boar sign was every where.
We had been there about 20 - 25 minutes waiting for it to let up when
the video starts.
Unfortunately the camera guy left the camera on
as we ran up the hill, then turned it off, thinking he was turning it
on, once we got to the top and could see the boar again.
I was a little worried about the shot, it was a little higher tan I like
to see them especially when going in at an upward trajectory. However,
this boar didn't go 40 yards. The broadhead had clipped the top of both
lungs and was stuck in a rib on the far side. He weighed about 200 lbs
and had pretty good top tusks, but the bottoms were broken.
