Wild Hogs (Boar, Javelina & Razorbacks)

Hogs, Javelina & Boars

Texas hog huntingAs one of the smartest animals on the planet, wild boars or hogs offer an exciting hunt. Although boars do not possess great eyesight, they have a keen sense of smell and very fiery attitude. In fact, they have a reputation for wanting to hunt you as much as you want to hunt them. Combine this aggressive nature with the fact that boars have a very thick breastplate and many hunters find that they need multiple shots to take this animal down.

Many of these outfitters offer combo packages where you can combine a hog hunt with coyotes, fishing and other game to create a customized hunting experience. Please let us know if you are interested in multiple game hunts.

Arizona

javelina hunting arizonaJavelina
This outfitter offers spot-n-stalk hunts for these gregarious, sociable, pig-like animals that hang in groups of 5 to 20 animals. Javelinas have poor eyesight, which enables hunters to approach within closer distances than other game. But don’t let that fool you. They have excellent sense of smell and you must stay upwind of the herd or they will bolt. January bow hunts can be combined with both Coues and Mule deer. Please inquire if interested. Success rate is 90% with rifle hunts and very high for archery, muzzleloaders and handguns. These hunts entail a great deal of walking and hunters are encouraged to condition themselves before arriving.

Typical handguns are the single-shot Thompson Contender/Encore or Remington XP100 centerfire cartridges, like .223, 22-250, .243 or the like. Revolvers in .357 magnum, .44 magnum etc are also common handguns that work well.

Seasons:
January 1-25 (archery season)
