I think I had a good hit.... sure looked like my fletching buried just behind the shoulder but never found my arrow... I did find limited blood, and one good spot where blood was coughed up, then it started pouring rain.... Gonna go in tomorrow and comb the area... I swear I think I heard him gasp/cough three times just about 5 minutes after the shot....

Goodluck with that hawg!! I hope you find him. I think I would of expected him to be dead before 5 minutes if your arrow was right behind the shoulder up to the fletching. I bet you get him though. I hope to see pics!!

He may have been quartering to me just a little... If he wheeled or jumped the string, I'm afraid I may have only got one lung..

best of luck to you. if you think you made a good shot you probably did so stay positive. hes in there just take it slow. dont be discouraged either. i double lunged a good deer last year and watched him walk through a field and then stood hunched up like i gut shot him. there was little blood at the sight so i gave him 4 hours. went back to find him 40 yards from where i shot him with a perfect entry and exit hole. i bet you find him keep us posted. goodluck again
