24 Hours

In 24 hours I wll be headed south to the warmer climates of Arizona, away from all this white cold stuff here in Colorado that we call snow. I now have over 3' of it sitting in my yard and wondering where to put anymore if it should show up.

But come Wednesday morning I'll be headed out on my javelina hunt come rain or sun I'll be there. This is our 21 year chaising those little buggers and I think that I enjoy it more now than I did back in 94 when we first went down. The first year was a learning experience, we learned that we didn't know anything about them. The second year I got lucky and found 4 of them walking across a bare hill side and I managed to get one of them. A freind also got a shot at one later in the day but we never did find the one that he hit.

After that second year we started hunting a new area and have come to learn it quite well. We know where they like to travel and hold up not to mention how they react to hunting pressure. In those 18 other years there have been a couple that I didn't tag out. One year wasn't to the fact that we didn't try, we just didn't see any of them, but the ranchers in the area were having a real bad time with mountain lions. Another year I found that the sights on my pistol were loose after taking a shot at a coyote. I had them from 20' to 50 yards and couldn't hit the broad side of a barn that year.

This year I'll take my Thompson Center Contender in 7-30 Waters shooting a 120 grain Nosler balistic tip at 2200 fps with a Baretta 96 .40 S&W as a back up gun.

Now all I can say is COME ON WEDNESDAY GET ME OUT OF HERE!!!!!!!!!!

Good luck Critter!

I'll be across the road from you in 37B.  We never did have much luck in 37A but that is where I got my first one.  We like the rolling hills a little bit more out by the old Tiger mine where we hunt. 

Good luck chasing them.
