Mean as heck too !!
Javelina hogs are just about the meanest little critters this side of a pissed off badger.
I have been treed by the little devils before,after my dad took a shot at one and just pissed the whole group off.They all came my way in a hurry,and it's no fun trying to get into the top of a 5ft mesquite tree with those thorns poking you every inch of trying to get to the top while it's leaning over towards the ground from me being in it. Not a fun day!
I'd rather come between a 300lb sow and her little ones,than mess with a javelina.
