You probably killed him. As I stated in another post they don't bleed out a lot of times. Their fat seals up the wound very quickly. Switch to slick trick broadheads and it may bleed better. They bleed to the inside. Usually I'm following VERY sparse blood trails to a dead hog. That's another reason they're so tough. You need to try Texas. We have more than anywhere else in the country. Check out my hog outfitter post. I posted another area that is pretty darn affordable. Sorry for the bad luck but don't give up and consider a dog to track next time you get a pass through. It wouldn't surprise me if you fed some buzzards. The lack of bleeding is downright frustrating! BTW - congrats on the pass through. You'll get one down you can find. Persistence is everything.
