Convoy c8 and javelina.

I was walking my dogs early this morning and ran into a family of javelina (mom, dad and baby). They started running towards as gully and all seemed well so I steered my dogs towards the left of the area. I thought we were home free when I heard a stomping sound behind me. It was the male charging me; to help me move along faster. I stopped and stood my ground; which actually did not work. I then turned on c8 and blinded the pig and made a lot of noise. At that point he turned back and went into the bushes.

 

 

Moral of the story; don't let anyone make fun of us for collecting flashlights.

Well thats quite dangerous actualy- i was like a month off work due to a female pig protecting her offspring( it was like 10-11 years ago), we were chasing a jackal party and the pig was hiding in the bushes, we didnt expect for it to be there so the atack came out of the blue : my biggest mistake then was that i left my glock in home that day
Since then i alwasy carry it when i go hunting or field /woods walking/camping.

Well those aint that dangerous Miller, they are like small hogs, yet they smell like hell : they have a mucus gland on their back
We do have those in here/Eu too, they imported them for hunting like a decade ago yet they can be found only in private hunting grounds only, EU regulations and protecting the nature you know…

A 150kgs angry female pig is quite a lovely creatire indeed

Meat from a source like what's represented, not having eaten it, makes me wonder what it "would" taste like. A wild taste, yes, but hard for me to imagine. I'm a fairly avid hunter.

They are range fed, but they eat literally everything. Not like corralled, farm fed at all.

All that I have had has been quite tasty. Sausage, bacon, & hams that were smoked…. it has all been very good.

Edit: To be clear, I am referring to wild hogs/boars…. not Javelina.

glad I am not the only one who had to google “javelina”; those look quite nasty. Guess I am too acclimated to city life, the worst creatures I get to see are mosquitoes.

I live in WA. I have heard of some hogs invading in the S.E., but not many. They have to be plants is my thought.

I am indeed out of the news curve. Until they become more newsworthy as a nuisance, I wouldn't waste the time to go where they are here in WA...yet. I should have been more clear. I do that sometimes and just start rattling thinking people just know. Sorry, I meant S.E. Washington. Some nights, on the weekends, I search Youtube for good hog hunt vids. I can sit and watch them for hours if there's enough excitement. The videos coming out from Texas, that part of the country IS infested bad. Some day I'd like to take a trip there and join in with a hunting party. That would be a kick! I like watching Coyote hunts too that are in other regions. Nothing like that where I am.

No, I meant you were behind the hog invasion curve in the PNW….. not the news curve. Smile

Yeah, I like watching those videos too. Lots of action.

Ok, SE WA… that does seem to be about the only part of your state they have been reported.

I know what you were meaning. You just experienced my lack of info fulfillment as I mentioned earlier. Not intentional, but I sometimes am the reverse to a speed-reader.

I was just summing the invasion up to, when it becomes more pronounced in the news, I might consider making a trip to go help provide the necessary injections Wink Big Smile

The real question is did you use the turbo mode or a blinky mode. Inquiring minds want to know.

I am glad that it turned out the way it did.

Being a Long Island, NY guy, I’ve never heard of a Javelina. We don’t have them here. I personally wouldn’t want to come across one.

You ain’t kidding.

You’d honest to God be amazed at the amount of destruction a sounder (family group) can accomplish in one night.

The state is trying to poison them, but the program was just paused until more study could be done. Many are worried about the effect of the poison on other animals, humans who eat the meat included.

ETA: I’m talking about feral hogs, who are larger, more destructive and much more widespread than the native javelina.

In Texas hogs are able to be taken year round no season on them. I don’t know if its still the same way in my state still in Mississippi. As far as I know you can trap them year round here. They tear up so much farmland and gardens and anything else they can get into. But I wouldn’t go in the woods without a pistol at least. At a plant I use to work at by honey island swamp I hit like 3 of them in under 2 years in my mustang. Just ran across the road out of nowhere. The industrial park was a nature preserve. But they hired a guy to trap them and move them.

On another note glad the light worked. I DD c8 can be very bright. I’ve strobed raccoons with 4k lumens and they just sit there. And other times take off. They take off now they know i mean business to an extent. In city limits now so a shot without a suppressor is a no go. They come to steal the cats food. Had a opossum get snarly when I hit it with a x6 triple strobe. Things get kinda intimidating when you corner one and it can’t see. Threw a can of beans at it made it jump off the deck. Deck is about 5 feet up (All I was willing to lose from the store trip) I had a friend when we were much much younger get ran up a tree with his bb gun. And it was trying to uproot the tree to get to him. So he kept shoptojg it in the face with BBS and yelling for help. Someone was shooting way in the distance. When they guy got close enough it turned and charged him. And took about 4 shots with a 9mm before it stopped feet before getting him with the tusks. Wild pigs/hogs/javelina etc can be very dangerous. Anyone who has hunting dogs. Has had to stitch their dogs up more then one time with fishing line or had to put one down that got gutted by the hog. The dogs hold the hog down while you come up with a knife and slit the throat

Blf has changed a lot since I've been here. Lots of snow flakes and easily offended over nothing. When the forum use to be great and people joked around and could take a joke. It's a forum it's not that serious. Let's make BLF great again!

I live right on the edge of the City Limits Speed4goal, but in the City Limits. We had a bunch of Coyotes around here several years ago.

One afternoon late a pack of 7 walked slowly out of the woods, stood and checked me out while I was mowing grass. They were big & healthy too…. not skinny & scraggly. I called the City animal control guy & asked him what I could & couldn’t do “legally”.

He answered…. “On the record…. not much unless they attack. Call us.”
Then he continued…. “Off the record, one shot is about impossible to trace”.

I simply said…. “thank you, I understand completely”. Wink

The coyote population began to dwindle early the following morning. Wink

He was right too…. one shot is hard to determine where it came from. Smile

Y’know, up to this point (arrow), I thought you had the biggest-ass nastiest opossums over by you.

 

The one by me that visits every night to eat leftover catfood just kinda stares at me and waddles away when I open the back door, maybe goes sluggish and plays dead when I go to pet him.

Couldn’t imaging shooting him in the face with BBs and still have him uprooting a tree to get at me.

Jesus…

 

With those javelinas and hogs and boars and wotdahellever, it makes it sound like a 12ga is the only way to go.

Or just set up some claymores.

When I see a video (which I did) of someone with a private chopper, load guys up with full auto M4's and 249's, my reality, and eyes opened wide. I wouldn't have believed it otherwise. That's taking things to the serious extremes. After watching the chopper fly over the landscape, and the amount of hogs there, HOLY ****. The hogs were in herds, running. Well strap me in. Lets GO!! And I thought watching the night hunts were a rush.

 

Poisoning them, huh? They better REALLY rethink LONG and HARD before they cut loose something like that. As mentioned, lots to worry about as an aftermath for results. I can imagine a lot of out-of-state hunters want to get in on the fun spree. What the heck though, I can't imagine all the hogs get eaten.

Wouldn’t it just be easier to find the Mother Of All Herds, get ‘em into one big wide-open field…

and get a Spectre gunship to do ‘em in? Send ‘em to <coff> Hawg Heaven.

 

I can just imagine a chopper full of yayhoos getting mechanical trouble and having to land right smack in the middle of one of those herds. “It’s game over, man! Game over!”

 

Poisoning? Nah. Sounds like a Good Idea ‘til someone’s favorite coon-hound gets a bellyful of poison and starts bleeding out his eyes and takes a half-hour of painful retching to finally croke. Then it’s no fun anymore. Or when little Jenny is on a camping trip and somehow manages to stick some colorful nuggets in her mouth, then ends up meeting ol’ Zeke the coon-hound.

The state had these feeders built with weighted steel trap doors, hogs were supposed to be the only critters with a snout strong enough to open them. If you’ve ever seen hogs eat though, I’d imagine they’d leave enough scattered around for another animal to pick up. Warfarin is what they’re using, the blood thinner they give to heart patients, my dad was on it for years. In large doses the animal hemorrhages and dies. Many of these feral hogs that are trapped are sold to vendors who sell them overseas. I have a relative who’s traps and sells to a buyer, they buy everything, even the old stinky boars. One of the concerns was that a poisoned animal would be killed and eaten by someone, or something else in the food chain after it died, like coyotes, buzzards or wolves. Wolves have been almost completely displaced by ‘yotes, haven’t heard or seen any in years. According to the State wolves were hunted to extinction here, but the family land I was raised on borders National Forest, and we used to hear the wolves often, got a light on them many nights.

The state had these feeders built with weighted steel trap doors, hogs were supposed to be the only critters with a snout strong enough to open them. If you’ve ever seen hogs eat though, I’d imagine they’d leave enough scattered around for another animal to pick up.

Yeah, those pesky Unintended Consequences…

Maybe increase the “dose” but lessen the amount of the bait, so it’d be just 1-2 bites… then Hawg Heaven.

Warfarin is what they’re using, the blood thinner they give to heart patients, my dad was on it for years. In large doses the animal hemorrhages and dies.

Yeh, standard rat-poison, too. They eat and just bleed out from, like, everywhere, even internally.

Many of these feral hogs that are trapped are sold to vendors who sell them overseas. I have a relative who’s traps and sells to a buyer, they buy everything, even the old stinky boars.

As food?

I remember an article about helicopter hunts, how most carcasses would just be left to rot, but some were scooped up to be used as food. Someone commented how just using those fresh carcasses could feed lots of starving people even right here in the States (eg, the Ozarks), let alone overseas.

Not a bad idea…

Hey, one place where I worked, there was a refrigerated vending machine that sold things like microwave pancakes, etc., and one of my weaknesses was the sausage patty on a bun. Really tasty. Main ingredient: “whole boned hog”.

Yeah, just take the skinned carcass, pull out the bones, and probably just grind up the rest into hog-paste.

Still was tasty…

Unno, seems like plenty can be done, not just getting rid of big-ass mammalian locusts, but putting them to good use. Hell, do a Lawrence of Arabia and run the herd off into a canyon… Then back up the refrigerated trailers and haul ‘em off to the processing plant.

Hunters for the Hungry has chapters in most states and is a great way for hunters to donate meat to feed the hungry. Typically it is deer and in some areas they donate hogs as well.
