When you say pig hunting, do you mean real wild hogs or javelenas? I've always wanted to take a hog with my bow. Not a big nasty stinking boar but maybe 150 pound sow for food. They don't run wild in Va. unless you go to a game farm and that's fishing out of a barrel to me.
The greatest thrill is to be up high with appropriate cover scent and simply be able to observe critters when they are totally unaware of your presence. I've had small bucks so close that I could hear them crunching acorns like breakfast cereal, even sniff the base of the tree I was in. Things like that mostly happen in the city where the deer are quite used to interactions with humans. Don't assume that means they are tame. They'll run like the country deer if they see you draw but they are a bit more forgiving of strange scents. The city deer also do stranger things than their country cousins. I took a 6 pt. last year that was chasing a housecat through the woods. Another time, a 7 point walked up on me while I was pulling my bow up to the stand. He froze and focused on the bow that was mysteriously hovering in the air. Then followed it with his eyes as I slowly pulled it up. Just as I reached out and grabbed it, he realized there was a person in the tree and got of out Dodge. What fun!
