What's your biggest/toughest big game kill, and what type of setup did you use to do it? Arrow/broadhead weight, draw weight etc.

a jake that was at the edge of my little shotguns range that i was using (25 yds) after i shot and he dropped then he got back up and started to run off. i proceded to chase as i fell down and got mud in my gun barrel. i then used the gun as a club to hit him which did not work. i then jumped on him to try and strangle him but then he kicked me really fricken hard. then i was able to step on his neck after he tired down and i suffocated him. all for a 13.5 pound jake. it was alot of work for 5:30 in the morning.

A couple years ago, I shot an armadillo 7 times with a 22 from 10 - 20 yards before he dropped. Tough little critters!

Maybe I was misunderstood. I meant more along the lines of bear, elk, buffalo, alligator, sasquatch. You know that sort of thing. The kind of game that might kill you back if it gets a chance.

Skunk

A skunk at 30 yards 2 shots with a 20 gauge ( low brass #8 ) didn't faze him. Grabbed the 10 gauge and one dead skunk ( he just sprayed my dog ).

Wart Hog. Even the PH's say they are about the toughest animal to ever run crawl or slither on God's green earth.

I would say a deer is as tough as you get.

I used to be a cop, and we'd get a lot of possible rabid animal calls where i worked. Once saw a rabid skunk take 9 hits from a 9mm with hallow points.

Everyone knows skunks can be killers?? Never shot anything dangerous in the classical sense but did a have a couple hand to antler battles with mortally wounded whitetails that I was too anxious to drag to the truck. Those damn hooves hurt.

Mountain Goat

No doubt about it. Mountain Goats get my vote. They are tougher than all get out, in more ways than one and have a will to survive like no other I've seen!
