High Plains Outdoors: Hunting Javelina

Feb 9, 2018

On this week’s show, Luke talks about hunting javelina on Ranger Creek Ranch  in Knox County Texas. javelina season runs until Feb. 25 in northern Texas and is open year around in many southern Texas counties. 

Many hunters are not aware of the large number of javelina in northern Texas around Knox County, thinking they must travel to extreme southern Texas to do their hunting.

Years ago, javelina were stocked on the huge Waggoner Ranch in Knox County and their numbers quickly increased and spilled over onto adjacent ranchland.

Luke also discusses javelina as table fare, stating that he considers the meat to taste somewhere between venison and wild hog. He absolutely loves it!
