Don't call them pigs! Javelina are collared peccaries, the only peccary to call the USA home. (Full disclosure, we call them pigs). Some call them skunk pigs because the excretions from their scent glands resemble that of a skunk but don't worry they are good eats! And you won't find a trophy like a javelina skull anywhere else, just look at those canines!
Hunting this highly social species is a great choice for the first time hunter as tags are relatively easy to come by, they can be effectively hunted with a bow or rifle, and in the right conditions animals can be closely approached. It sure makes for exciting stalking! In addition, there are several hunts throughout the year; starting in the fall and into late winter.
