OUTDOORS: The javelina is no mere hog

This is an adult javelina. Note the collar around his neck. (Mark Rackay/Special to the MDP)

I was in what my wife and I laughingly call my office, when the phone rang, waking me out of a sound sleep. Reluctantly, I answered, expecting it to be a call from someone who was going to renew all my expired car warranties for me in exchange for copious amounts of cash.

Instead, it was my hunting buddy, who can sometimes be worse than a telemarketer. This time however, it was a good thing he called. He had an idea for a hunting trip for us. Since I am always up for another hunting trip, he had no problem selling me on the idea.
