Scouting for Javelina Part 2

Things are still looking good for my upcoming Javelina hunt in New Mexico. The peccaries are still showing up in my trail cam. 

Hopefully they'll be there on opening day which is less than two weeks away.

It looks like you may tag out

It looks like you may tag out early in the hunt. 

I have found that they will stay in the same general area unless they are really pushed.  When we are hunting them in Arizona and have put a lot of pressure on a herd we will vacate the area for a couple of days and let things settle down a little before going back into the area.  That way the herd can get back together and are not as spooky. 

I have another month before I head to Arizona and can't wait to get out of the cold and warm up a little.  Good luck on your hunt.

Good luck! I'm planning to

Good luck! I'm planning to hunt stink pig with a handgun this year. I have the tag on the fridge and will have two days only to get it done. Still haven't decided which handgun I'll use but I'm thinking my EDC off duty gun would be fun. If not that one I'll use a single action .44 Magnum.

3 more days and it's show

3 more days and it's show time. Here is a silly question...

Would a 30 caliber bullet be a bit too much for these Javelinas? Just wondering.

Out of a rifle I would

Out of a rifle I would consider anything over a .25 to be a little bit overkill but if that is what you have that is what you have.

Too Dead

There is such a thing as being undergunned but I never heard of being too dead so no a .30 cal would not be too much gun.

It may be more gun than you need but it's not too much gun.
