Javelina Camp 2023 Armando Martinez
Javelina Camp 2023
We’re in the midst of javelina season and HAM hunt, which is handgun, archery, and muzzleloader. I’m with Armando Martinez, Mr. Bow Hitch himself and we’re sitting here in camp, freezing our nards off. It’s snowing and we’ve got some pretty crazy wind gusts, not exactly ideal javelina conditions, but it’s a beautiful country. I first came down with my son and we were helping out Shane with one of my clients. Then Joe and my nephew Anthony came down and we hunted for another couple of days. Now, I drove down and met Armando, who brought the weather with him.
With my client, we got in on three different herds, but things kept falling apart for us. Late in the afternoon, we spotted another herd. Anthony was the number two shot and Shane and Joe were on the radios. We got in tight about 70 yards and then Anthony got in a great shot with a muzzleloader. We almost doubled up, but my gun misfired, and my hunter went home empty-handed.
Armando and I recap our hunt together and we didn’t turn up anything at first. The wind was blowing us over so bad, Shane said we could trust fall in it. We worked our way out to the leeward side and glassed up a group. The rocks were brutal, and our legs were pretty chewed up. I recap some stories from the rest of the hunt and what I’d do differently. Armando recaps his experience using his bow in some pretty interesting terrain. We talk about the Bow Hitch and how Armando and I first got connected. I also tell some stories from a recent trip with my wife, and we get into some of the worries I’ve had over hunting and what the future could hold in terms of rules and policies.
* Stories from our recent javelina hunt.
