Whether glassing for Montana Mule deer, or rooting out Javelina in Texas, Rinella defers to his backcountry roots, challenging himself at every corner while providing a memorable adventure along the way.
Steven Rinella takes to the canyons of the West Texas desert in search of javelina. In this broken, rocky terrain finding these unique critters isn't easy and getting a clear shot on a skunk pig with a bow is a whole other story. But Steve is inspired by the evidence of he finds of ancient hunters that used the area to prepare a meal that honors both the animal and our hunting ancestors.
