All animals demand pursuit-specific products, and feral pigs are certainly no exception. From their ability to shed poorly placed arrows to their annoying tendency to respond to even minimal hunting pressure by going completely nocturnal, hogs are worthy of some gear consideration.
Since most archery pig hunts are conducted next to a feeder or water hole from a blind or stand, most hog-related products involve ambush scenarios. This brings to the forefront the issue of drawing pigs in and then being able to shoot effectively in low light, or worse, no light. Fortunately the hunting industry has heard our complaints and has delivered on a litany of products that will benefit anyone looking to mix arrows and oinkers.
Following are the 10 best products for ensuring that your sit isn’t in vain, and that by the night’s end you’ve collected a fresh cooler-full of ”the other white meat.’’
- Seven-pin sights are great for mule deer country, but don’t do much for most hog hunters besides offering a cluttered sight window. If you’re planning to sit on a feeder, wallow or water hole for pigs, a single-pin sight set to the exact distance you believe your shot will be is a much better bet. A great option for this scenario is the Ascent Ambush from Black Gold Premium Bowsights. An extremely bright, vertical, .019-inch pin along with an oversized adjustable level make this sight a perfect choice for low light hog shooting. To further enhance your ability to make the shot, the Ascent Ambush features a PhotoChromatic Shell that changes colors with available light and is 2X or 4X lens adaptable. Price: $219
