    If it was just a so called sporting hunt I would tend to agree it is wrong....... but when you see first hand the destruction those hogs can do I think its an effective control of a very destructive animal. Somewhat like those cute little prairie dogs until you have seen what they can do to a field.

    I understand the destruction ,But That seems like a hellova waste,Specially in this day and age,They just leave em lay? There was a forward Mssg that I wasnt able to read all of {went by too fast}:wink: I gathered these guys dont let hunts be booked. There are other means to kill hogs,But I understand its a TX thing.

    It is a good means of killen off wild hogs. Wild hogs are habitat destructive non-native. We have a shoot on site law in Mo. Cant be no worst than trapping them or usen dogs.

    Hog eradication is what this is about. Farmers and ranchers lose billions of dollars every year from hog damage. Trapping and hunting will not reduce the numbers. That has been tried. They reproduce faster than any other large animal out there and they eat almost anything. You can say its wrong, not sporting, and wasteful, but no one here in Texas that is dealing with the hog population explosion is going to feel like you do. So until they come up with a better way to control them, its lock and load! Catfishjon

    umm im in Texas dealing with it and i do not like some dude in a chopper with out my permission shooting ANY thing on ym land and leaving it to ROT and STINK. If they would at least let soembody know where they were it could at least be handled. NOT AGAINsT THE ERADICATION AT ALL!!

    I'm not aware of the damage wild hogs are causing. I did note all of this was filmed on flat farm lands. Would it be a bigger problem for them to do that in hill country? I have no opinion, but I would not agree of someone killing on your property and letting lay where they fell. There is a lot of hungry people out there that could use fresh meat. Needs some time of regulations.

    Shooting something from a still position is difficult, but shooting a moving object from a moving object probably takes somekind of major marksmenship.

    Doesn't look easy.:cool2:

    Hogs are super destructive to farm land. I made a post in the SC section yesterday about four hogs that we are trying to kill that have about destroyed a wheat field I just planted. Those four hogs have done about $2500 worth of damage so far. I watched part of the video. I would think that the copter was CONTRACTED by FARMERS specifically for hog eradication. As for the hogs being wasted, I'd think there was someone on the ground that was collecting the carcasses. Again, I did not watch the whole video.
