    That is unreal!! I would love to have a beer with some of those guys and listen to the stories! Seems it was a bit easier to get a pilots licence back then too! I was amazed at one guy having 25000 hours and still being alive. Total respect for the work they were doing, although it seems barbaric sometimes, it was a necessity.

    PS: 70% head shots on moving deer from a moving platform.. without going down the ethical route, that is some shooting!

    A very interesting film.

    The sheer numbers of deer wreaking havoc when they started is almost unfathomable.

    As you say FFM when I heard the 70% stat I raised an eyebrow of jealousy.

    Well posted Mereside.

    Seeing as you think you know so much about it scattyboy how about giving us some facts instead of your usual snide remarks. Shooting deer from helicopters is illegal and would cost the pilot his flying licence as well as prosecution for the stalker. Get real!

    I believe that they have banned the practice now...

    It was a great time historicaly,i have met several that where involved, some proper men,now im not knocking the makmanship, but i have seen lots of footage where the deer are being slayn and grass is laid flat by the downdraught of the rotors, they where not 200 yds up....
