    Default 2018 Arizona Spring Javelina

    Just learned I have drawn another spring archery tag. Went out last year had a blast, just came home with the tag still in my pocket. I am looking forward to trying again this year. Good luck to those who draw this tag

    I struck out this year in AZ for javelina. Currently waiting on the leftover list to be published. Javelina are a ton of fun!

    Good luck. I'm hunting deer down there in a couple weeks, thought about trying to pull a javelina tag since I've got the license but just can't swing the time off.

    Myself and my two brothers drew for the archery hunt in January. Pretty lucky as we usually miss out on the first draw being NR's and a party, and have to pick up tags on the 2nd draw.

    Yea that is what happened to me last year. But it is pretty automatic in the second draw.

    I was not drawn for javelina this year. Leftover list was just posted today and there are leftover tags in the units I had as my first and second choice.

    I don't get it. Am I missing something here?

    I think there are a limited number for non res. So you may not get drawn. I thought the same thing last year. Once the draw is over all tags are available.

    Happens to residents too. The Az draw system can be mind boggling to comprehend

    I will be hunting 18B just out of Wikieup. Sycamore Creek Rd but I normally camp off Burro creek crossing road. Been pretty wet the last couple of years and that is some slick mud trying to tow my RV down there.

    You're pretty much in javelina central there. Only downside is can get a little crowded. If all else fails, walking and glassing the hills around the santa maria can be productive. Just make sure you're on the right side of the river lol

    I didn't personally fill my tag but had fun trying. Thought a few of you might be interested in our hunt recap - http://thinairoutdoors.com/arizona-archery-javelina/

    Since I'm new to this whole Javelina thing, I"m up for any pointers anyone has to offer.

    It was hot, dry. and the moon was as bright as the sun. The good weather brought out more hunters then years past, our opening day spot had 11 archers. Usually we are lucky to see 2. It was still an very fun hunt. I always love to get out and hunt with good friends and family. For me that is the best experience. No pig for me, our party did manage 1, my son-in-laws sister harvested her first ever animal. Great times. We did have our opportunities but they didn't quite work out. I nock 2 arrows/none in the air.

    My dad and I both had javelina and deer tags. We only had 4 days to hunt but were able to fill our tags on the first morning. I was sneaking on a group when they all bedded down in a little wash. I didn't feel like I could get on them where they were laying so I decided to try to call them in and it worked perfect. They came in on a string and I ended up shooting mine at 10 yards. Then while they were distracted with me my dad was able to sneak in from behind and get another one. It was quite the rush seeing them running at me, I had to yell at one to stop it from running over me.
