Walking or glassing

Recommended Posts

Question 

New to javelina hunting here in AZ. I went a few times. Every time I would find fresh tracks and poop. I walk around and search but never find anything thing. I was told you can find signs and just walk about softly and you will run into them. 

 

Should I walk about or just post up and wait? How long do you stay in the spot, all day,?

You can do either. I’m almost always glassing morning and evening though, and if I decide to do some still hunting it’s usually between mid morning and mid afternoon. I’ll walk washes or thick bottoms a bit especially if it’s warm out

So maybe try the glassing in the morning till about 10 and then once more around 4 till sun down? Never glasses before as odd as that sounds

Glassing is all about a pair of 15s and a tripod. The tripod is very important,  more so then the glass in my opinion.

Javelina are not fans of cold weather, so they can often be seen on the slope the sun is hitting in order to stay warm.

I don't doubt that but I have seen them hopping around in a foot of snow in Prescott and there are quite a few around Williams.

If they live in an area with snow, they obviously have to be somewhere in the snow.  However, like most animals, they will seek out the warmest area within the habitat in which they live, which is usually the areas the sun it hitting.

glass glass glass....and there are things you will find walking that you can't glassing, like heavy use bedding areas in very heavy cover and very open dirt beds near heavy cover that get full sun in middle of the day but are tucked into draws and ravines and washes. also don't overlook areas close to towns. they love dog food
