High Plains Outdoors: Despite Aroma, Javelina Is ‘Good Eats’

Feb 23, 2018

In this week’s show, Luke talks about a hunt for javelina that he enjoyed this past week at one of his favorite places, Ranger Creek Ranch, near Seymour in in northern Texas. 

During the hunt, Luke used his Darton Maverick 2 compound bow to take a good "eater" that weighed about 35 pounds.

For those who are not accustomed to eating javelina, Luke says pay no mind to the scent gland on the critter's back. Just remove it during the skinning process. Many folks are 'turned off" to eating javelina because of this scent but it has absolutely no effect on the taste of the meat. Luke made a big pot of smoked javelina chili and his guests cleaned out the pot and many were planning a hunt of their own!
