Howdy, we finally got a break from all the rain so I did some hunting. So far all I've posted is trail cam pics so here's some dead animal pics so nobody thinks I'm some kinda PETA spy or something..lol

Huck (Will) sent me some PSE Brute Mechanical Broadheads to try out. They are awesome. Both pigs were over 150 pounds. Both boars will thick sheilds. Both shots penatrated to my vanes. Both expired in seconds.


This one was the first test dummy. He came out @ 8pm and faced me while he ate. Finally some deer came in behind him. He turned to watch them and I sent my arrow to him. I watched the white fletch stop tight to his skin. He ran out of sight and I heard him crash hard just in the brush. He rolled down a hill and I had to do some serious heaving to get rm back up to a jeep trail.

The second one I never got a pic of. A lady had been calling me telling me of a mean boar that had her pinned in her house. She was scarred of him cause he wouldn't run away. I was so busy I missed her calls the first time. Two days later after alotta rain he came back. I dropped all work and hurried to her house. There he was rooting her yard for grubs. I got my bow out and walked in to get a shot. At 30 yards he would turn and face me while he rooted. I couldn't get broadside. I spied an opening in some cedars behind him so I got back in my truck like I was leaving. The lady was watching me in her window. She looked dissapointed. I put my hand up to let her know. "dont come out yet". She misunderstood and thought I was leaving...lol
I pulled out and stalked in to the clearing and there he was perfect broadside at 20 yards. I put the arrow tight on his shoulder and once again the fletching stopped the arrow. Instantly his whole side turned red. He whirled around and ran a 5 yard circle. He fell over and was dead. The lady was in her garage when I took the shot. She saw the whole thing. I was worried she'd take it hard. I always try to hide these kinda things from non hunters. She was amazed. Her exact words were "It's like you flipped a switch on him and he just fell over" I told her that's that way it's supposed to be done. It was waycool.

Thanks for the Mechs Huck they worked excellent. I'm hooked

Heres some pics of some small ones Me and a buddy killed recently

As the Nuge would say those pics give me pork chop fever.

The PSE Brute heads are kinda in between Rocket Sidewinders and Rocket Stricknines.

The Brute Heads are 100gr with a 1.75" cutting diameter versus the 100gr Sidewinders 1.5".

The Stricknines are 2" cut heads but weigh in at 125grs.

Anyhow all these heads are very similar and proven designs.

Just make absolutely sure you don't forget to install the washer that comes with each head. If you forget the blades will destroy your insert.

I'm moving this to archery gear review to make it easier to find in the future.

Nice Boar Frank-you can see the wrinkles from the gristle plates on his "outer" areas in the broadside/1st picture. Them plates must have been thick!
BTW-Marty(and Will)-Me and Frank just closed on a deal down in the "golden triangle" area of S. Texas for a 600 acre ranch outside of Cotulla!!!! Mucho pigs!! Mucho quail and dove! Poccito -GRANDE deer! Since me and Frank are the sole leassers, mi casa esta su casa! I can smell the bacon cook'in....can't wait to have you guys!
We're going down to build feeder pens and corn it in the next week or so.

Awesome shots and great pics. I am looking forward to getting into some decent hunting here in Texas. I have found that so much is privately owned or leased and lease prices are so expensive. Hunting on post is virtual nightmare, it is so difficult its almost as if they dont want you hunting. I have been stationed many places and Ft Hood is by far the most difficult to hunt on. The ungodly rules and regs. Heck I got a strong back, a truck and few bucks I would be so willing to lend to someone to let me hunt some pigs/ let me prove my worth and then you can think about letting me take a doe. Good job guys.
