been a long time since i wandered the deserts of Arizona, but the Javelina down there weren't actually considered "big game". they were more in a class of their own..sort of like feral pigs. I never hunted them specifically, but i did get chased up a draw by one with a particularly bad attitude while i was out quail hunting.
it seems he and i liked walking the same draw...only he liked it better and was bound and determined to convince me of that. i sure am glad he laid off before i had to resort to climbing a mesquite tree. cuz' i am pretty sure my 7 1/2 quail loads weren't going to change his mind.
