Default Public land Javelina double!

My husband and I both managed to stick our first javelinas. It was an awesome hunt but very strenuous as the peccaries were located in some very steep and rocky terrain.



After Steve got his we knew about where the herd went so I prepared to stalk them. Unfortunately, in order to get the wind in my favor, I had to climb up and over the largest outcrop on the property. I found them bedded down in a 10 foot crevice. Getting a clear shot through the scrub oaks they were bedded under was not easy but I got it done.



Steve took this picture right after I made my shot. That is me on top of the rocks between those two dead looking trees.



There were cactus everywhere, even in the trees!



While scouting we came across this fellow with a paw tangled up in some vines. I thought at first he had been snared but it was just some tough vines. He had been there for a while and had the ground and bushes around him torn up. We called in some help and got him free.



I boned out the javelinas and the meat was surprisingly good. Almost like deer. We removed the back gland right away and had them cleaned and in the cooler within about half an hour of the kill so maybe that made a difference.

Congrats ! I've been wanting to do that myself, but I don't really know what public land holds huntable numbers of javelinas.
