Default broadheads for hogs?

just wondering what kind of broadheads people use to shoot a hog. im kinda leary about using an expandable. they got tougher and thicker skin than a whitetail.

Hey buckfever, I would use a very pointed broadhead like a four blade muzzy 100 grain. You want something to penatrate the thick skin.

Buckfever, i'll let you use an old indian arrow head i found. you could tie it to a willow stick. the arrow head is made of black obsideon. you could give that a whirl.

well my quiver is now full. ive got 3 arrows with muzzy 3 blade 100 gr. and 2 arrows with 100 gr. spitfires. im leaning toward the muzzys for my first shot and then after i see how they do ill decide whether or not i need to try the spitfires.

by the way thats not all the broadheads and arrows im taking with me. thats just the ones that are my first choice to carry in the woods.

my muzzy broadhead went all the way through the hog. it definitly would have done its job had i hit the hog right. one of my hunting partners on the trip had real good sucess with the montecs taking them down.

I would steer clear of the expandables on the hogs. ( Personally, I wouldn't recomend them for deer either) Expandables loose energy upon impact as they open. I have seen plenty of deer shot that should of had an exit that didn't just cause of expandable broadhead choice. I went on a recent pig hunt and me and my buddys shot 7 pigs. Most of us use Muzzys. I got two boars and both were shot multiple times with pass throughs. Even shooting right thru the grissle plate.
Why would you choose an expandable anyway? The reason I hear most is that the arrows fly true and accurate, and it cuts a large hole. 1st off, if your bow is tuned properly, your arrows will fly true with a ridged broadhead. If your arrows don't fly true with a particular broadhead, tune your bow, if that don't work, tune your arrows so your broadhead blades are in line with your feathers and each arrow is identical. If they still don't fly straight get a different fixed blade broadhead.
2nd, a large wound hole does you no good if there is no exit hole... And, if you hit your mark, little hole, big hole, still just as dead, 100 yards down the trail.

We were pork shopping at Superior game ranch, in the U.P. Great place and time. We did not use dogs, we stalked and did small drives.

I am Bloodbro... Had to change name and password, for some reason I could not log in as Bloodbro?
