My outfitter did everything he said he would do on my aoudad hunt. He got me within a 50 yards with my bow on a free range trophy aoudad (no fence, no feeder, no blinds). We also had multiple opportunities if I had been a rifle hunter (150-470 yards ). Very comfortable lodge, hot shower and good food. Excellent cable TV.

OI Founder, Cory Glauner with an archery javelina he took in South Texas.
Javelina, also known as peccary or collared peccary, are weird little critters, and if you’ve never been hunting for them, you should! Especially if you’re an archery hunter. Even though they look, and act like a wild boar, they definitely are not. Surprisingly, they are more closely related to rodents than to pigs.
Bowhunting or javelina is fun!
Javelina are fun to hunt with a bow, and make a great first hunt for a new hunter since they are fairly easy to stalk. Their eyesight is poor, and they are always busy. They can be baited, but spot-and-stalk is tons of fun! Another fun way to hunt for javelina is to call them in. They come into a simple predator call, and you can even purchase special javelina distress calls.
Javelina live in Mexico, Texas and Arizona
In most states they’re considered a game animal, so be sure to check regulations. You can hunt javelina year-round in some parts of Texas, but Arizona requires you to draw a tag.
