Not to mention we'll provide lunch at our exclusive fly in restaurant and dinner at a restaurant in Temple while we wait for the sun to go down.

I've said this about this kind of hunting before, but these animals must be controlled drastically like vermin and the use of helicopters is the only way to do it efficiently. Look at the other use of helicopters in large mammal pest control, goats for example. These are feral animals that breed exceptionally fast and not wild boar, farmers are getting their crops and lands destroyed. I'd be happy to give it a go after all I shoot foxes and rabbits whenever possible.

It's difficult enough to hit anything from a helicopter with something belt fed and firing one-bit tracer let alone a hunting rifle.

its a new one on me.

Not new, they used to control deer and other invasive species in New Zealand using helicopters and were very successful, and by sucessful I mean thousands with semi automatic and bolt action rifles.

There was also a documentary on one of the discovery type channels a wee while back set in Australia where they shot and poisoned feral hogs from a chopper to try and get the numbers under control.

The rifleman was hanging out the side door with a Ruger mini 14 and just bowling the piggies over one after the other - it looked like the skill of the pilot who was, if I recall correctly, bombing up the boys magazines as they went along, was pretty awesome too.

Ethics and personal views aside, it is just another form of vermin control as that's what the feral hogs are classed as, so why not sell it and try to recoup some of the outlay.

Fair point if its done with experienced people being paid to do it and not amateur tourists paying to fire off rounds in the general direction of the animals!

This whole thread is flawed, on the ethical level, wounded animals all over the place, and on the financial level, if the hogs are causing that much damage the landowners should be paying you to go shoot them, why oh why do shooters decide they have to pay a fortune to help some rich farmer get rid of HIS PROBLEM :doh::doh::doh:

at a guess the farmer is paying the guys to control them via the helicopter method. If those guys can then recoup costs by getting hunters to pay then why not? Perfect business sense. Of course there is the ethics of pest control via this method but I read all too often on here and other places of people taking pot shots at foxes and rabbits or cor ids at distances they admit to never shooting deer at just because they're vermin.

If if you were getting paid to manage park deer would you then pay stalkers to help you cull them (after all they need to be shot but that would eat into your profit) or would you get people to pay you to let them shoot them for you and make more money?

I do not dispute the fact that these animals are a nuisance and need to be controlled and drastic measures are needed. They are vermin but they are not mice or rats. If they are to be hunted from choppers then this should not be viewed as sport not should it be offered as sport. It has nothing to do with sport. It has nothing to do with respect for your quarry. it is a job for a butcher as such it should be handled by contractors and not sportsmen.
Anyway that's my view.
Good luck with it anyway.

If you guy's ain't careful, you'll be settin on the Group W bench with me..... Makes no difference where you are... greed, the better'n you crowd, selfishness, with a touch of ignorance... Is usually the root of These overpopulation Problems...
