    neuman23 did you have success on your HAM hunt?

  • #2
    I did not. I only had 3 days to hunt, which was last weekend. It was pretty windy, and did not see a thing. Not even see any fresh sign. I did run into a few other hunters out there and the consensus was that no one was seeing anything. I think the wind played a factor. I was thinking about going out today, but having three exams this next week, I thought it would be wiser to study. This was my first time hunting Javelina, so not sure how beneficial my advice is, but here it goes. I spent most of my hunt glassing the foothills, which in theory allows you to spot them a ways off. I've heard a lot of people have success in the washes, but that is pretty much getting lucky and bumping into a herd. I've also heard that a lot of the hunters focus on the washes. Either way prepare yourself mentally for not seeing anything for a while, but once you see a herd, it should be game over. Since they have poor eyesight approach quietly from downwind, and you should have success. The hard part about Javelina hunting is finding the animals. A friend of mine has hunted 37B in the past, and he said that it was a better unit than 37A, so hopefully you have better luck than me. What unit did you put in for elk? I put in for 4B, early and late rifle.

      Ya I hunted 37A last year for javelina and had no luck and 37B the year before. A couple others down south units the years before that. I have tried to send time doing all of thoe but havent seemed to have much luck but I am hoping once again that changes this year. For elk I put in for 22 North and 23 late bull hunts, and for an oct cow hunt. Then an early cow hunt and late bull hunt in unit 1. I hunted 22 North two years ago archery late and had no luck and would just like to draw out this year. Starting to get anxious about going this weekend though, I hope that this year is going to be the year that I can find a heard.
