Stink Pigs, as the locals call them, are numerous in West Texas. They are more fun to hunt than should be legally allowed, especially with a bow or vintage-type firearm, as shots tend to be close. Spot and stalk is my favorite way to hunt them, during cool winter weather that inspires the little peccaries to be out and about. There is a two-pig limit, with the season open year-round. A hunting license is available over the counter. Public land and access are unusual in Texas, so plan on procuring access to private lands. Hunt rocky draws and hillsides, and cactus flats. Work into the wind, they are stinky little things, and often you’ll find them with your nose before you actually see them. Make your shot carefully, they are small and tough, and a bit dangerous when wounded.
