With a wood arrow :) Had to see how them woods penetrate with a Simmons head. Blew right through! None of the carbon arrows went completely through any of the hogs I have shot with the 47# Palmer

Couple of questions... Did you see much improvement from carbon to wood? Also, what were your arrow weights on both?

I have killed 5 hogs in the last two weeks with this new longbow. The first two were with a GoldTip 1535, 100gr insert and 150gr Stinger, total arrow weight was 450gr. I'm pulling 47#@26". I wasn't getting pass through a but the hogs were dead all the same. I decided to up my arrow weight. Put 100gr insert and the 150gr stinger on a 3555 shaft and that put me at 520gr total arrow weight. Shot two hogs with them, still no pass through a but again dead hogs. I got my wood arrows in and they came with 125 gr points and were weighing 420-430 grains. Way too light for a 47# bow in my book. So I put a 170gr Simmons on for total arrow weight of 480gr. It flew great too. Hit dead on so off I went to the woods to field test it. The big wood arrow blew through this hog even though it was 40gr lighter than the 3555.

Were shot placements similar? I'm asking these questions because I'm thinking of trying some wood arrows again. Congrats on your pigs!

Similar on entrance but most of the carbon shafts hit the opposite shoulder which will definitely slow them down. The wood arrow went in ribs and came out ribs
