Anyone gonna go out for Spring Javelina, I'm thinking about buying a left over tag in Unit 16A. I used to see them while lion hunting on the Laughlin Ranch (15 years ago). Back then they didnt have a Javelina season in that area. Anyone hunt this unit before and if so, how was it?

There are Javelina in 16A there not thick like around Tucson they are mostly in the south east corner of the unit but you can find them in small pockets in other areas find the cactus patches will be your best beat i would go back to this unit only because it's a closer drive then Tucson. it's also a good unit for dogs and cats we where last year and found 2 fresh sheep kills from cats good luck

Thanks for the info Dustin, yea I had a great time hunting cats in that area when I had dogs. Always found fresh tracks to run and trail, sometimes dogs caught them, other times they would jump a herd of Javelinas while cold trailing a cat and screw everything up.....lol. My dogs loved chasing them things and I'd always have to yell at them for doing it.
