I’d never hunted with a crossbow before.

When I was given the opportunity to head south to hunt wild hogs with only a crossbow, I was all in. I practiced with the bow enough times that my bolt flew through the targets as if it was paper. Feeling confident, I packed my gear and headed south.

The 3.4 Covert from Carbon Express and the G5 Montec heads were a good combination that did their job.

Unfortunately, my aim was a little off, and I had to finish the pig off with a Buck knife.

Watch the video that my good friend Michael Cantrell from Pure Instinct Hunting put together.
