The Javi's have got to where they come to the truck whenever they see me. This is about a mile from where I was feeding the feral hogs.


Yes! A Weatherby does kill them deader.

Interesting, thanks for posting. Do you shoot them with a Weatherby as well as a Nikon?

I don't shoot the Javi's but if I did I'd use the 340 just in case, 460 might be a little over kill.

You are going to have to dart them and do some hoof trimming like I do the Ibex.

The javalina is foundered.

Could be from eating corn.

Seen it in deer, but not often. Usually when their natural food sources are diminished, and they partake too freely of corn, or protein feeders, without enough roughage.

I'm curious how quick that can happen. I fed for a couple of months trying to get rid of a sounder of feral hogs in another spot and haven't feed for a couple of weeks now, this was a mile away and the first time I've seen this javi. I put out 50 lbs yesterday and had about a dozen javi's on it and did the same today and this one showed up. There is a feeder across the fence about a 1/4 mile on the neighbors property. I do know that at least two of the javi's yesterday and today were some I recognize from the other spot. Obviously they recognized me because they hung around the truck.

I think he foundered some time back and that allowed his hooves to grow out at an angle instead of growing properly and staying worn down.

It can happen with corn from a spin feeder. I was visiting on a ranch NE of Comstock one year when a hunter killed a buck that was foundered bad. They only fed corn on a very large ranch(30,000 acres + or -) and this buck lived in the middle portion of the ranch. What I saw was a lot of corn on the ground and the feeders were not feeding that much and had varmint cages. What was causing this was the type spinner plate they had, the location of the feeder on a ridge and the high winds. The wind was blowing corn off the spinner plate and the buck was living in the feed pen. He had spent most of his life eating under that feeder. While they were only running the feeders a few seconds twice per day, when the winds got bad it was blowing kernels of corn onto the ground was what was causing the problem

Ok, we have to qualify this... least favorite for what? To be around a feeder? Makes sense. To eat? Not a chance. grin

New to me. Will they recover from the condition? Will that part of the hoof eventually break off?

Oh it's qualified. He is say buzzards got to eat, and you will have to pay him to shoot one. Unless it's on his ranch, then he will buy his own ammo
