So what most of you are saying....? Is there would be an explosion in the animal population the first few years. Then they would self regulate, and their numbers would return to normal..?

I have heard some of the guys in the shop talk about hunting Feral Hogs in Texas with an AR, from a helicopter...Anybody know if that really happens...?

I've heard like $10,000 for an hour flight time, depending on the chopper.

Would definitely be a blast though.

Ya, just look at the 7 day forecast! They can't even get that right.

Here where I live in CA hunting is not popular. Not many animals are taken as a result. Not sure what the statistics say, but the take is low. Lots of deer out there, as far as pigs the CA DFG charges $23 for one pig tag. Lots of pigs out there. The deer around here are thick as fleas, and they go right down into town looking for forage. there is no plant that will escape their appetite anymore. there used to be "deer resistant" plants, but not anymore.

I imagine that if all firearms hunting were to come to an end, we would see a significant rise in the populations which would result in more disease and starvation. The thing that frightens me is the possible rise in diseases that can be transmitted to humans, such as Lyme disease and Chronic Wasting Disease. There has been a "new" disease in the Middle East that has been attributed to camels (specifically one-hump dromedaries) that is transmitting to humans. This stuff could get serious.

Its funny to watch them try and run on pavement. They slip and slide all over. If one breaks its leg I figure its fair game! Drag into the garage and string it up!
