Dancing bears, hog chase ending with pork, & broadhead question?

My friend got these bear pics from a buddy who hunts near big lake wma. He says the bears are loaded over there. Here's my latest sportsmans article,'Not Enough Arrows, Just Enough Shells.' After 29 bowhunts this season I have no meat to show, yet after 1 hunt with the shotgun I got 2 hogs. Also i'll be switching to new broadheads this coming weekend. The striker magnum 125 grain which has a 1.5' cutting diameter. Its the biggest fixed blade I could find and I want the same broadhead to use for my x-bow, compound and recurve so I can switch them out easily. I got 2 packs in the mail today, but my broadhead target is at the camp. Is there a big drop off in distance when switching from a 100 to 125 grain head with x-bows and compounds? Just wondering if anyone has experience switching to heavier heads and performance. I'm eager to get more massive blood trails. Anyone uses the striker magnums? I've killed many animals with my montec g5's and they fly perfectly, but rarely will I have solid blood trails even with many well placed shots. A few shots I had no blood at all though I recovered the animal as they fell within 100 yards. Next year I'll be getting a blood tracking dog, so i'm eager to get my new dog to start training.

Reason

Do you know the reason the Indians lost? Answer: They didn't have guns. IE. Stay with the smoke pole.

small hogs

lol good one, well i'm cookin the small one up whole this Friday. Can't wait! my buddy sent me this pick of some hogs they killed on a bowhunting trip out of state up north. They stuck the sow then went get the shotgun. If only I would've shot the first big hog from my chase i could've gotten more of the small tasty ones following her.
