Thanks for the help in advance.

I have hunted 20B before

I have a Arizona HAM javelina tag for 21 this year, but have hunted 20B before. Contact me by e-mail and I will see if I can give you some ideas you may not have already thought of.

Success in 20b !

:grin:

It was on Monday 8:05am, spotted a herd of 9 pigs crossing a wash about 200 yards out. Made the stock to within 50 yards, pigs got nervous and started to move picked one of the mature ones. Fired the 6" .357, 158 grain SWHP hardcast, striking the pig in the spine right below the tail, rendering the rear legs useless. He went twenty yards before I had a clear shot. At 20 yards, I fired another round this time striking him in the neck he was down and out. I only wish my first shot would have been all he needed. Can't wait until next year so I can do it again.

They are good in burros and tomales

Well my javelina hunt ended yesterday with nothing but tracks, feeding sign, beds, and scent. Even had them cut my track the day before yesterday. They can be rather difficult to see as they often look like a small barrel cactus from a distance unless they move. The only one that I did see was riding on the back of a quad.

They are delicious. The way we prepare them is to soak the meat in ice water for about 5 days then boil it to shred it. Then it is used to make burros and tomales. Other folks have different ways of preparing it but if you keep the meat cool it's pretty good.

However they are ugly as all get out.
