Default Using a Helicopter Hunting Wild Pigs

Wild pigs are a pain in the ass here in Florida, so I am sure they are elsewhere also. This guy in this helo does some serious pig damage.

I've seen this before. It's one hell of a job. Getting to fly around in a helicopter taking out feral hogs. Wish I had a job like that.

It's not his actual job, but my brother gets to do this every now and again up in the Northern Territory... They go up every couple of weeks after the heli-mustering pilot shaves enough hours off the company log sheets

It is open range on all ferals... Pigs, dingos, wild dogs, camels and donkey are all on the hit-list. They use a Rem Model 7 .308 and a Winchester Super X3

I am understandably jealous.

Needs a good belt fed. We have some door gunners that need practice- why not?

You don't have to worry about getting charged by a wounded piggy.

He's putting a hurt on them. From the forarm and reciver, looks like a Beretta Xtrema, from some of the charges hitting the dirt in some places, I'd reckon he is using 3-3.5" #4 Buck
