4nolz, I lost it hunting in the boggy bottoms. I
Ll check for pic. I really liked it shooting heavy draw short bows. I had a 48" 69# Cascade that would put a 2020 thur a cinder block. Back in the day I hunted big pigs at 7 yards :). Now I hunt wieners with a girly bow. :)

I could not find pic. It was a ally tube with slot cut in it. The tube was long enough that you could wrap all four fingers around it. The leather two fingers wide went into the slot. I don't remember the details but you adjusted the length of the leather tab so it would put traction on the string at the same time your other two fingers had traction on the rod. So after you got it adjusted you draw the bow with all for fingers and released with two middle. After adjustment and practice it worked well. only way I could get the little 48" 69# drawn.

Yes exactly. I took a little adjusting to but it made pulling heavy draw bows easier.

I was hunting pigs in big privet thickets. They made tunnels inside the thickets. Where two or three tunnels intersected made a good hide. Very exciting way to hunt. I did carry a 41 mag S&W service revolver just in case. Largest pig was 234# at 7 FEET :)

Yep put me up a tree twice. Could not figure it out. I carried 20 x 50# of corn in on my back that year just so she could eat. (and I could eat a few off spring) :). Go figure

Mike and I had a friend and fellow tradbow pig hunter, Little Feather. He figured out that if you made pig sounds it would attack them. OK, I think is'll give that a try....DUH. Ah when you are in a pig tunnel you do not want that pig to know exactly where you are. I ONLY tired that once and it worked.
