Every once in a while something remarkable takes place suddenly. Those of you who have actually been following my conventional bow searching videos for long will have seen Fen on a few of the previous hunts. Both he and his bro Coye have actually been shooting selfbows considering that they might stroll however I ‘d never ever have actually anticipated this to take place. While in South Florida hog searching and recording with Ryan Gill (HuntPrimitive) and Vasten Hall I brought a single broadhead tipped arrow for Fen. I believed we may discover a bunny or raccoon that he might attempt ‘n shoot. Or maybe some little hogs like we entered in 2015. When we entered a group of hogs I handed Fen his arrow and turned my attention to recording Ryan attempting to shoot a hog with his primitive bow and stone points. Fen went his own method.
Simply a couple of minutes later on Fen came running back stating he ‘d shot a hog and the arrow remained in it. “I strike it in the ideal area” he kept stating. Not understanding what to make from that or if he even understood what the “ideal area” was, I consulted Vasten. Sure enough, he ‘d shot one with his little 20 # recurve selfbow! The hog needs to have been quartering to him due to the fact that the arrow gone into in front of the shoulder and took a trip back into the chest accomplishing 9 inches of penetration and breaking one rib prior to stopping. Fen’s bow is 20lbs@20″. The arrow is 1/4″ walking stick tipped with a 190 tuffhead broadhead. The overall arrow weight was 410 grains. That’s outstanding!
I want that I ‘d been on his heels to catch the shot on movie however him shooting a hog was the last thing I believed would take place. Appears like I may be relegated to cameraman following this little hunter around in the future! However that’s great by me.
