    Best broadhead for hogs

    I am more than likely going on a boar hunt this may. It will be my first time hunting them. For those of you that have done it, I want your opinion on broadheads. I use Tekans but I don't really know about using a mechanical on boars. If you have tried it, give me your input. Just want some opinions on what I should use.



    Thanks and God bless

    I have hunted hogs a couple times. I wouldnt use a mechanical either. I used a zwickey or magnus traditional type head. thunderhead or a muzzy would prolly be fine too

    I used a rocky mountain revolution on a 375 pound boar. It hammered him. They dont make them anymore.... redesigned to something "better" too bad.

    I'd go for something pointy and razor sharp.

    Grim Reapers all the way. Killed 75+ hogs with them. Shot placement is also key.

    Nice screen name also!!

    The last few hogs Ive taken with a bow have been with mechanicals. Im getting the same results as with whitetail when I switched from fixed............shorter tracking jobs.
    Last hog (boar) that I shot this year was with a Tekan I. Everything you could ask for. Complete pass thru and mega blood trail and one less hog.

    IMO, I wouldnt change from what you are currently using for big NA big game.

    Agree 100%... vitals are further forward AND a bit lower than a whitetail. The heart sits right behind the brisket/sternum in a hog. In my experience, quartering away shnots are the best situation, or the foreleg has to be forward exposing the vitals. Learned this the hard way as a kid hog huntin' in Texas.

    tekans

    My bro smoked one with a Tekan last week. It ran about ten yards...Job well done. I wouldnt hesitate to use them after watching his pig go down so fast.

    This may help.

    I won't say their the "best" because I haven't tried every head on hogs...but I can say I have killed a lot of hogs and the best head I have found for them is the Steelforce Phathead. That may change here in a few weeks when I try the new Phathead SOB on them...

    We have killed about 25 or so hogs in the last 2 years with Phatheads and there is no doubt that penetration and blood trails with these heads are notably better than with any heads I used in the past. One or two hog kills don't mean much because hog size and shot placement plays such a big part in end result...but when you stack up a bunch of kills then you can start to get a good idea of how the head is performing.

    We have several kills on video on our website in my sig line.

    I love Grim Reapers and use them for everything in Montana. I took them to Texas last winter and got into a 300 lb boar. At 16 yards my arrow only made about 16 inches of penetration. The same setup shot through a quartering away bull elk at 48 yards the previous fall. The shield on that hog was an inch thick!! It sounded like I shot into concrete. I think you would have no problem with the broadheads you are using on smaller pigs but if you get into a big one you better wait for the quartering away shot. Confidence is everything in bowhun ting so if you are confident with your setup then stick with it. When I went down this winter for hogs, I knew I would only be shooting 30 or less so I sighted in heavy arrows(430 gr) and shot shuttle T's just to be sure. They blew right through the pigs. Have fun and good luck!!

    When I went down to Texas last year, I used the 100 grain Wac'ems. Complete pass through with a Firecat set at 50#.
