Florida archery boar video clip

Heres a video clip of a archery hog hunt I filmed in Florida this past March with my friend Rod Luke and Captain Mark Bennett. We met Mark when we hired him a few years ago to guide us Tarpon fishing in Florida. At that time he was not a hunter and had little interest in getting into it. Well after a few more fishing trips and lots of talk he bought a Hoyt Trycon, learned how to shoot it and well the next step is on the video clip.It was Captain Bennetts first bowkill and really caught the excitement that goes hand in hand with a bowhunters first kill.

If you look close at the picture below you can see Bennett's tracer nock sliding into the pigs heart. It was a perfect shot!

Yeah he was hurting but there was no way he or I was going to blow that hunt for mark. he had seen that pig a couple of times before in the three days prior and really had his mind set that this was the boar he was destined to take. All we heard about was the black an white. I had just finished climbing onto my stand and Rod was handing me gear before he went up his stand. I saw the boar coming through the palmettos and got everyone still. Somehow he passed up the camera and I started filming . From the lens the pigs was about 7 yards. it was truely one of the greatest moments I have ever had in the woods. To see a guy who at one time was basically speaking an anti hunter get his first bowkill. Awesome. To get it on tape priceless as the saying goes.
