    Heli-Hog Hunt Last Weekend



    My neighbor put together a Heli-Hog Hunt last Saturday and Sunday that included about 10K acres of ranch land (including my ranch). I wasn't able to participate, but he just called me with a report on the heli-hunt.

    They flew a total of about 14 hours between the two days, with 2 hunters at a time. The results were pretty good..... 244 confirmed hog kills and ~50 additional hogs that were believed to have been mortally wounded and ran off in the bushes. Love to see the pests eradicated (most hogs were picked up and donated to charitable causes), but even more important, this many dead hogs should help everybody's ranch!

    That's a pretty good number of pigs.
    Should have told them to push some exotics toward your place while they were flying.
    Any questions about truck mods I have done need to be asked in the forums. Don't send me a private message about mods cause I probably won't answer that PM unless there is money involved.

    Can't believe you didn't get in on that hunt! Sounds like it would have been fun.

    Looks like this is gonna end up being an annual event, so maybe I'll get in on it next time. They used a Robinson R44 with a pilot who I understand has a ton of hours and sub-contracts with the State of Texas Fish & Game department for their game surveys.

    Would be fun. Don't think I could talk myself into spending that much for 1 hour of hunting.

    That does sound fun, but I feel like I would just end up "spraying and praying" more than aiming.
