Wife 2022 javelina

Recommended Posts

Since we hunt different units for archery, ham and rifle hunts, we went out last weekend scouting for the wife’s rifle hunt, see where the pigs are hanging out this year. We basically learned where there were NO javelina, couldn’t find any sign either. Opening day we made plans to go into a roadless area, where pigs often go after being pressured. About 9:30 my wife caught some movement in a wash a mile out, she was sure it wasn’t a deer.  We watched for another 15 minutes and sure enough 9 pigs walked out of a draw to feed.  We snuck in to 120 yards and waited for the larger boar to turn broadside and she took her chip shot.    Whenever we’re hunting we always pick up trash, mostly beer cans. As luck would have it my wife spotted a pile of valentine day balloons tangled up in a brush.   She went and grabbed them so we could take some of the weirdest pictures I’ve been part of.

Great pictures....If the average person knew how much trash most of us pack out they would be amazed.

I may have missed this one.  Good thing you told us that was your wife and not your daughter -- I thought I had misplaced a couple decades again!  Great story.
