    And away we go:::

    Gear Used in the Hunt:
    Diamond Black Ice Compound 70lb-Axis N-fused Arrows and 130grn Widowmaker Broadheads
    Black Widon Recurve 61lb-Easton Legacy 20-20 alloys and 215 grn Widowmaker Broadheads
    Black Widow Longbow 67lb-Carbon Express Traditional carbons and 215grn Widowmaker Broadheads



    Day One Monday.

    Arrived at station approx 1-40pm after seeing 3 Boars, was able to get one with the compound. He was walking down the road and when I stopped he went around me in the scrub. I cut him off and shot him at about 20m, he died 30m further on. A slight quarting away shot. Unpacked and went for a drive south to the last gate some 40km away, saw approx 30 hogs with at least 3 good boars. The wind was all over the place and they all took off. On the way back ran into another 2 boars but the wind again spooked them. The Cape still as frustrating as ever. A big storm hit and rained quite heavily so I headed for home. At one creek crossing just after the shower a big hog had just crossed the road and I pulled up he continued to feed so I got the video camera out and walked over. Set it all up and took the shot at 20m which devisatated the hog he only went 15m and collapsed. I checked the video and you guessed it didn't push the record button, what a twit. Anyway got a bit of video just before the storm caught up to me so didn't get a picture. Made it home juust as the second storm hit and it has been raining ever since....This is not looking good.

    The video is not very good but it does get better as the days go on...lol...

    At least I got 2 boars and saw approx 40 hogs for the afternoon.
