So is anyone on here headed out for a spring javelina hunt in Arizona besides me and my hunting partners? We'll be hunting the HAM (handgun, archery, muzzle loader) season that starts the first weekend in February. I know that Hoggetter was out last year but it looks like he is going to be sitting next to his pool rehabbing his shoulder this season.
This year we are going to ruff it and stay in a nice motel while we are out. Ya can't beat a nice hot shower after a day of tracking and spotting those little buggers out on the hill sides or in the ravines. Not to mention a little bit of TV just to have to get up and turn it off after we have passed out when we hit the beds.
This year we will even be hunting quail for the first couple of days to see if we can get our selfs a tasty dinner but we will only have 3 days to do that before we get serious and have to start to hunt in earnest. It is a fun hunt and the nice thing about it is that it gets me away from the snow and cold in Colorado. But, it has snowed on us one year not to mention the rain that we have gotten the last few years. But getting out into the wilds is better than staying home.
For those that haven't hunted these little critters they are something else. They'll run for a couple of miles after you spook them and you'll wonder how they do it on stubby little legs. They are also called the ghost of the desert in that if you spot one you better mark that spot because if you look away you might have a hard time finding him again even if he is standing in the open.
