I have lots of Javelinas hitting my feeder almost every day and no more hogs which is unusual. For years I always had lots of hogs and very little javelinas. Since I can only shoot two per year how do you guys go about trying to get rid of them?

Since the limit is just 2, you need more people. So, like Sapper said, you could let friends and family try to tag out with them or you could sell some hunts if you want to try to make some money or maybe just recoup some of your corn expenses and such. If you sell hunts, do them at something of a discount compared to the going price in the area and you will likely have plenty of hunters wanting a chance.

One thing I have heard of folks doing up here for feral hogs is letting not just friends/family, but the church congregation come out an hunt for anybody with a new hunter who needs a chance at gaining some experience in the field, something that can be done outside of deer season. Or make the offer to folks you work with, etc. You can get the problem addressed and let some new blood get some much needed experience that they will remember forever.

A buddy of mine had a solar powered security camera set up on one of his feeders, complete with voice capability. When he sees pigs under his feeder, he yells at them from his home and they hear it in the field 20 miles away and they take off. Not a great solution as the eventually come back, but it gives the deer a chance to feed.

Heading out there tomorrow with a couple of buddies to hopefully take care of a few. Is there a tag for Javelina?

No tag thank goodness, you'd get covered in fleas trying to attach one.

I misspoke/typed. There are no actual tags, just the limit. I used "tagging out" too loosely as a synonym for hitting one's limit.

Use the 3 S's.

Shoot
Shovel
Shut-Up

Or just put a fence around the feeder, keeps the hogs and Javelinas out and the deer just jump the fence.

Thanks fellas, I use this place mainly for hog hunting but lately all I've really seen is a lot of javelinas showing up. I've only seen a couple of hogs in the last couple of months which is very rare for this place. We will be heading out there later this evening and will see how it goes.
