Roast pig anyone?
We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!
Fun to shoot, terrible to eat! They are mean little suckers!
They aren't technically pigs. I forget what they're called. "Collared" something. Anyhow, I read a story earlier this week about a lady who was out walking her 3 Chihuahuas and a pack of javelinas attacked her dogs...
If I move to AZ and I see a Javelina, I think its probably going to be shot. Especially if its in my yard!
I remember reading about how they smell so bad you're probably going to smell them before you see them...so, keep your nose out!
They're a giant rodent with gnashing teeth. You'll hear them clacking together. They indeed stink, but not like a pig, more of a rotten odor. I took my Dad out hunting Javelinas with handguns, but drove in his Explorer. We quickly harvested two, and his neighbor wanted them. What a disaster, confined in a small space with such odiferous creatures! We finally tied them to the roof rack, but the smell was ingrained for weeks!
I absolutely hate javelinas. My great aunt hates them even more. She had the unfortunate situation of being treed by about 10 of them. She killed four of them with her Savage lever action, then ran out of ammo. They had her there for about an hour until we came looking for her.
They are absolutely worthless and cause quite a bit of damage. Everyone that hunts on our place has pretty clear instructions that if you see 'em, shoot 'em.

Well, I think they're cute, and don't mind the smell of them in the wild. I wouldn't want to eat a collard peccary, though.
Shot-placement is king. Adequate penetration is queen. Everything else is angels dancing on the heads of pins.
Nasty little suckers...yet another reason to be armed.

Nearly got cornered once in high school. House-sitting with a friend... we came back and were chatting -- no SA at all -- and walked into their fenced in courtyard area. My friend had left the gate open, and lo and behold, we're confronting by half a dozen javelinas who promptly gave a charge. We both hopped the 4' fence -- didn't bother to open the gate! One of the suckers lodged his head between two of the steel posts and was shaking like mad -- rocking the entire fence!
We went in through the garage, but we'd closed the gate, so now they were stuck in there. Since my friend left the gate open, I left him with the lovely task to open the gate -- then I'd try to scurry them out from the front door. They gave my friend a half charge, but he was already bolting for the side door.
Those things are vicious.

We dont have those things around these parts, but I kinda wished we did. It would give me something fun to do.

I'm not a hunter. Is a .45 sufficient?

That's what I use. Just gotta be careful, they run in packs.
The smell comes from the musk gland on their rump.
