    Is this right or wrong?

    Last night while riding on a golf course with my unleashed dog and a couple beers, we came upon several javalina. They were backed up between the cart path and the fence, and were getting pretty mad at the dog, so I had to ride off-path to give them a wide berth. Should i have just given them my beers instead?

    It is never, under any circumstances, okay to ride on a golf course green or fairway. Do you know how much damage you and your bike can do to that grass? I've lost so much respect for you now!

    That said, what kind of beer was it?

    It was beast ice I believe...although it was a bit dark and I did not care to ask. As to the original question posed.....I'd never give beer to a javalina.

    You should have shot them, to "manage the herd".

    It's never okay to have sex with a javelina but it does happen. Beer is never a viable excuse in my book.

    wait, what was the question ?

    my dilemma was complicated because i did not have enough beers for everyone, and if I'd given them to the javalina than Maadjurguer probably would have started wrestling them to get them back.

    Who can I complain to about unleashed javalina not staying on the cart path?

    You weren't riding 50 horsepower motocross bikes, so it was WRONG!!

    Riding a golf course is only fun if you can throw a rooster of divots for a hundred yards. Next time use the proper equipment, and have fun in the sand traps.

    As mentioned above since you are a nature lover you should have "managed" the herd.
    As you stand over the lifeless carcus after while drinking your beer, comment, "That's a nice pig". That's how they do it on the hunting shows.

    As for riding off trail, it's ok as long as you stay on the green. I was a caddy as a kid. Golfers are jags. Ladies day was kinda cool though.

    seems like everyone got my sarcasm, i did ride on the green for about 10 yards til i realized i was being rude then carried my bike around the javalina. While I am pretty shameless about sneaking onto golf courses, I do try to leave no trace.

    it was ***trippy*** seeing the javalina cause at first they were just dark shapes, near where there is another dog that my dog always gets amped by, i thought it was a coyote. then we heard grunting and saw a big one come on out and posture. a bit later, we were pretty well surrounded by a pack of coyotes. by then Maad was pretty drunk and decided to ride a staircase.

    Very funny... Maybe we should put some mountain lions out there to get them.

    Chollaball... If you love your dog you should have offered your beer along with avoiding them. They will gang up and do a number on a dog that chases them. A coworker of mine had to carry his Lab out of the Superstitions with a severed hamstring and useless front shoulder after he (the lab) took off after a herd.

    Itís actually very cool the way they protect each other. We used to call them to us by blowing on a wounded rabbit call. Most Ďexpertsí I ask seem to think they react to the call because they think itís one of their own in a fight. Iíve always wondered if that behavior is the reason lions seem to leave them alone.

    @MattyBoy - too bad I did not know you are in the hood sooner. hope to meet you some time. I have imparted all my suburban hooligan freeride knowledge to Maadjurguer.

    my dog is 9, pretty smart shepherd mix. She's good about not mixing it up with more than 1 coyote or javalina at a time, and coming when I scream for her in terror. Its fun to watch her get into it with wild animals when they are alone. 2 weeks ago we saw 10 javalina in broad daylight at the firestation at Recker\Virginia.

    Was the javelina a "6" or better? I mean at least 6 beers before you'd think you'd "hit it"?

    Really? Then you haven't tried it, they feel as good as a small dog and almost as good as an angry sheep. Trust me on this, I have lived in Montana and Wyoming.

    pigs lurve beer!

    okay not technically pigs.. but still

    Back in my days in 4-H we'd feed a can or two to our hogs

    Got them stoned so they would hold still
    for trimming (shaving their ears/tails etc: getting
    them ready to show)

    worked like a charm and they loved it!

    just had to be sure to do it a day before so they
    weren't drunk stumbling into the show ring!

    you try gettin into a pen with a sober 250lb porcine that
    doesnt want you coming anywhere near it with a pair
    of industrial WAHL clippers!

    Javalinas look, act and smell like pigs but are NOT, they are a rodent.
    It doesn't matter what size the dog is as a javalina will have NO trouble cutting it open with the male's tusks killing it quickly, even large hairy german shepards.
