Question about Javi's.... Texas considers them a game animal so hunters are required to keep the meat in edible condition. However, I never hear about anyone eating the meat. Is is good eating?

I've never had the chance to hunt one but I might pursue a hunt if the meat is worth packing home.

The meat is very lean, so grinding into sausage or braising/crocking is usually recommended. I make mine into an awesome breakfast sausage (adding pork fat). They have a scent gland on their hide near their rump, which will stay with the hide when you skin it. Make sure you don't touch the hair and then the meat, this will transfer the smelly oil to the meat. Hope this helps.

Where we hunt they have walk in coolers. If you do not want your meat, they donate it to a local orphanage. Same for hogs.

This gringo move to south Texas back in the eighties where I worked mostly with Spanish people, each Friday they would bring some food in and cook it. They ask me if I had ever eaten any I said no but wanted to try it. It was great later while hunting with a "mexican" buddy I told him that what I had tried to cook tasted awful. H.e informed me not to try to eat the boars. If you book a hunt have them educate you on the do's and don'ts, they will be happy to help. They were all over duval county in the 80's & 90"s, with no limits.

This is just my opinion. So don’t get all worked up.

Javalina meat sucks. Tried it a few different ways.

Also Javalina is more of a rat than a hog.

Killed a few. They're a pest on our lease. The backstrap isn't all that bad, if you're careful with that cleaning, as stated above. Required mount for your Texas trophy room.

Just a note. A good Javelina mount isn't cheap. Most all are open mouth and that drives the price up.

Nice mount. I have shot my share, but it is still a good hunt on the right ranch.

Written By:

The Editors of Encyclopaedia Britannica

See Article History
Alternative Titles: Tayassuidae, javelin, javelina

Peccary, (family Tayassuidae), also called javelin or javelina, any of the three species of piglike mammal found in the southern deserts of the United States southward through the Amazon basin to Patagonian South America (see Patagonia). Closely resembling the wild pig (see boar), the peccary has dark coarse hair and a large head with a circular snout. The ears are small, as is the tail, which is generally not visible. Its spearlike canine teeth give the peccary its other common names, javelin and javelina. These teeth do not protrude but make notable lumps in the lips.

Peccaries are the New World counterparts of swine (family Suidae) and differ from true pigs in certain skeletal and dental features. They also have a scent gland under the skin that opens on the ridge of the back and gives off a strong musky odour; this gland is the reason for the mistaken belief that peccaries have two navels, one above and one below. Peccaries are omnivorous, feeding on a variety of plants, small animals, and carrion. They have a barking alarm call and when disturbed make a rattling sound by chattering their teeth. Although ferocious when harassed, they are sometimes tamed by South American Indians. Peccaries are also hunted for their hides and meat. Litters usually consist of two young, born after a five-month gestation period.

There are three species. The collared peccary (Tayassu tajacu) is the smallest and the most common, living throughout the entire tayassuid range in a variety of habitats. Distinguished by a pale stripe around the neck, collared peccaries are less than a metre (three feet) long and weigh between 17 and 30 kg (37 and 66 pounds). They live in a variety of habitats, generally roving during the day in herds of about a dozen, although larger and smaller groups are also common.

The white-lipped peccary (T. pecari) is slightly darker and larger, weighing 25–40 kg (55–88 pounds). Named for the white area around the mouth, its range is limited to Central and South America, where forest and scrub are the primary habitats. These peccaries live in herds of 50 to over 300 and are more severely impacted by habitat destruction.

The Chacoan peccary (Catagonus wagneri) is the largest, weighing over 40 kg. It is also the least common, living only in the dry Chacoan region of South America (see Gran Chaco). About 5,000 are estimated to remain and were thought to be extinct by the scientific community until 1972. These endangered peccaries usually form small herds of seven animals or less. The population has been affected by both hunting and the clearing of its habitat for cattle pastures, causing concern about the species’ long-term survival.

Years ago, I use to go on an annual Javelina & hog bowhunt on a large ranch near Encinal. IIRC, it was run by a group of policeman bowhunters out of Houston every year. It was $50 for Fri thru Sun. Like was said, javalina are great to hunt & stalk with a bow. My buddies & I managed to shoot a couple so we took them to the check in point for donation. The guy at the check-in just laughed & said that they had already taken a few to the orphanage & they told him "Don't bring us anymore stinkin' javalinas here!"

Anyone on here recommend a place/places a couple or 3 bowhunters might book for Javies (we live in Midwest). We've bowhunted Hogs but thinking of trying these critters for a change after our Deer seasons are closed. March probably. Cost for like 3 nights & lodging if possible.. Were hunters so fancy it does not have to be. We tent camp if needed. Suggestions/rates welcome. My 1st post.

I would recommend Rob Kiebler at Fair Chase, Ltd. He has no website, because he doesn't need to advertise. Just google Fair Chase, Ltd. I don't know if he runs into March but he was talking about it a couple years ago. I guarantee you will enjoy hunting with him.
