I got him about a mile from the Pecos river.



A lone boar!

Nice pic and boar. I am thinking you are hunting in a short sleeved shirt and am a little jealous.

A cold front came, its only about 60 today.
ktc, they're year round here, 2 per hunter and the out of state over the counter liscense is $45 and here's a place to call to book a hunt for $100. $145 total to hunt 2. South Texas has a lot of them, so this ranch may have a lot, I don't know that. Call and ask them.

I got breakfast patty sausage made out of him and am saving the skull, as I have one shoulder mounted. Here's the canyon where I got him.



I was on the cliff around the corner to the right and he was down by the yellow circle on the right.

PS. we call them hogs/pigs but they arn`t really a pig, they are more closely related to the rodent/rat family.

Isn`t there some big "rodent" in africa or south america somewhere that they say the javelina is closely related to, and it has hooves?

Nice pig uhmm or rodent or whatever you want to call it.AZ402 used to call me Pig Boy cuz it was the only damn thing I constantly killed
You know the best way to cook is.....first you have to dig a pit...then you have to get a good peice of hickory board....next you have to salt the board real good and use a real strong spicy barbecue sauce on the meat....next let it cook all day in the pit....then dig her out, throw away the meat and enjoy the board
