Want to go big game hunting this spring but didn’t get drawn? The Arizona Game and Fish Department still has some leftover javelina tags that can be purchased at department offices.

Javelina hunts offer a springtime hunting experience unique to the desert Southwest. Stalking a herd of javelina can be challenging due to their keen sense of smell and hearing. If you are fortunate to harvest an animal, javelina meat can be barbequed, pit roasted, or processed into a variety of sausages.

The general javelina season begins Feb. 24 and runs through March 1.

To see a list of leftover javelina tags, visit and scroll down to the link for leftover permits under the 2012 spring hunt information.

Keep in mind that hunters must also have a 2012 hunting license in addition to their tag; visit for license information, or stop by your local Game and Fish office in Phoenix, Mesa, Tucson, Flagstaff, Kingman, Pinetop or Yuma.

Hey Fred - Speaking of your childhood antics. I encourage you to go to the Varmint category and post your childhood story about the interlude you had with a perceived rabid coyote! Pleeeeeaaase! ;D ;D
Nice!!! That is a great story. And remember Fred, someone special once said - "If you eat a little dirt every day, soon you will have eaten a lot of dirt".
