i went out to the desert to try out my new lever gun. i was walking out to my "private range" and heard some rustling in the brush. i stopped and looked over and there was a javelina just standing there munching on a prickly pear cactus. i held still and looked some more and picked out a couple more. they were about 25 yards away. i took a couple steps forward and they lumbered off. there was one HUGE one. i checked the area out and they must be coming here often. too bad i can't get a tag for this area. there were a bunch of little ones there so i'll be back for them next year.
