South Texas Javelina
« on: March 06, 2018, 02:41:00 PM »
I harvested these javelinas while on a group hunt with Bornagainbowhunter and Bisch last weekend.  The second javie turned and looked right as I dropped the string, and the last thing he saw was the business end of a Wensel Woodsman.....

They are nothing like wild pigs. Not even in the same family, and taste nothing like a wild pig. There are  few folks out there who say they are good table fare. I am not one of them. I have tried eating them several times, and just don't care for them. The only way I have found to make them edible is to cover them up with so much spices and stuff so that you cant really taste the javelina any more. As much fun as they are to hunt, I won't shoot them unless I have someone lined up that will take and use them.

IMHO, there are waaaaaaaaaay better critters out there to eat to waste time trying to make a javelina taste good!!!

I'm not sure, but I plan on finding out.  I found a recipe for a South American style stew that I'm going to cook in the next few days.  I'll also try to pull some like pork after some time in the smoker.

I love hunting javelinas, but have not killed one yet.  Congratulations on your hunt.
And Bisch, if Sweet Baby Ray's can't make them taste good, I doubt I'd like them, either, as I love SBR.

Looked like a good time, congrats!  I’ve seen several mention making their javelina into chorizo and carne asada.  It always looked good in the pictures anyway lol!

Dead eye! That looks like an awesome hunt. Seen a doe that was shot from a tree stand but the arrow entered low and exited high because she turned so hard at the shot.

I have been going to west Texas for 15 years hunting javelina.  They are the perfect bowhunting game animal.  Also gets us out of the cold winter for a week.  We have shot a lot of them and find the best is to just bone out the meat - usually get about 10-12 lbs of meat them bring it home and mix the same about of good ground pork with it 1:1.  Then add spices and mix.  Test a small amount while mixing - make a patty and fry it and taste.  Add any spices.  When satisfied we take a green bean can or something of similar size.  Remove both ends and fill with meat, then push out the meat and double wrap with Suran and freezer paper.  This usually makes about a pound of meat.  Use it anyway you want, depending on how you spiced it.  Chili, spagitti, breakfast sausage, mexican food, etc.  Straight javelina meat is pretty nasty, but adding the pork and seasoning make it really good.  We make a day of it - all of us that hunted, grinding the meat, mixing the pork and seasonings and wrapping.  Fun times.
