    A great day in the Arizona backcountry. I dropped this Javelina at 30 yards with the trusty HOYT bow. There was a herd of about 8 pigs. We stalked to about 40 yards and they were feeding on some prickly pears. This BOAR stepped out at 30 yards and gave me a quartering too, shot.

    I hit him and he went down. They rest of the herd was chomping and woofing. Their hair was raised and they were "fired" up! to say the least.

    This is my 3rd javelina and if you guys ever want to get out of the cold and snow and come hunt pigs in January , it doesn't get any better than this. 68 degrees and sunny.

    Oh and a hugh 4x4 muley was pushing does on the same hillside. You can hunt with your bow/ pigs and deer at the same time!

    Enjoy

    Bow hunting FTMFW! Nice kill man. My dad's got a friend in NC who might take us out this spring to either NC/SC to kill some bacon, hope it works out.

    What broadheads do you use?

    That's what I shot my first Elk with, except I used 150 gr.

    Last season I used Rage 2-Blade expandables, but I don't think they opened correctly when I hit my elk and thus the arrow didn't go all the way through. It was a good shot, also. Never found my elk, bummed me out. I'm sticking to fixed-blade broadheads from now on.

    big game like elk i think heavier fixed blades are better, at minimum the arrow will sit in them churning about cutting things up,

    on deer / smaller a mechanical broadhead is okay..

    I know the feeling of not finding an elk. I hit a cow elk a few years ago...the shot was a little far back . We ended up jumping it and never found it. They are tough to say the least.

    My pope and young bull I double lunged so he died right in front of me.

    Here is the arrow from the javelina , he went 15 yards and I put 1 more arrow just for good ,measure.

    I have heard good things about rage but I think it's important for that blade to open to do its work. I like a good blood trail if at all possible.

    back to bone stock.
    i just got back from unit 33. the couse were pushing the does hard for few days, and then it just stopped. we went 9 days hard and got to see deer everyday. two-three stalk attempts each day. never go closer than 80 yards when the swirling wind would blow it for us.

    if time permits..i am flying back end of january to give it another five days. i love AZ in january.

    the entire time, i saw 3 javalina. i didnt buy a tag, so i just glassed them for awhile, but didnt get too excited about it.

    Aficionado, nice job stalking CouesWhitetails , not easy at all. My buddy was down there and said the bucks were on the move. I shot my first coues in 33 ( with a rife) . I also killed a record book archery javy in 33 in 2008. Bowhunting in Arizona allows you to enter them. Anyway , he never saw a pig in 4 days of glassing :(. I hope you make it back at the end of January, keep me posted! Good luck !

    WOW, muleyhunter! Great pics! Thanks for sharing! You guys have really got some nice critters on the ground! That muley is a beast!

    My pig this year is from unit 24a up near Globe. But I do hunt a couple other units for pigs as there are always leftover tags available !
