that look like so much fun!
While it looks like fun, I cringe when I think about all the shots taken without a proper backstop and especially all the wasted meat. Not to mention wounding some of the hogs to die slowly.
it still looks like fun eith way
I agree with Bear. To me, it doesn't sound like a responsible or sporting way to hunt.
Kind of takes the sport out of hunting don't it? I would rather just be on the ground and hunt them the old fashion way.
They aren't hunting them for sport. Hogs are an infestation. They reek havoc on crops, and reproduce like rats. Backstop...Mother earth was behind each shot.
The perfect end for a happy hog. Years back when we collected the left over food scraps from the local school, I took out all of the prunes and placed them in a gallon jar and added some yeast. Covered with a piece of cloth and fermented for 3 months. I fed this to our stud Boar, This was one happy hog till the prunes kicked in....... If you guys would take all that corn and fermint it first and then feed the hogs they won't be able to run and will die happy!!
They are getting rid of a destructive nuisance. They are NOT hunting.
It's not meant to be sporting, it's meant to be as effective as possible. Kill as meany as you can, as quickly as you can.
I agree that there is no reason to waste all that meat - but the hogs they didn't get will eat the dead bodies.
On the other hand, the farmers are probably so fed up, they stopped caring.
Note: The trigger man needs to fix his gear problems before he hops in the heli.
I'm no lover of todays farmers, they are one reason we are in the hole. When the grocery shelves go bare and you have to live off the land, those hogs you shot last week could have been your food for today.......
I agree that they need to be exterminated but I still don't like to see them suffer. I like to be where I can get them with a quick followup shot if needed.
just thinking about it, it would probably be easier with a door mounted M60 then a semi auto 12 gauge. Me personally I would love to do that for target shooting but as far as hunting I like to kill my animals and eat them not just leave the bodies rotting out in the fields. Also pig liver left in a tube of strawberry kool aid or jello for about three weeks makes good catfish bait.
there must be working for some State angency to kill as many as they can!
I think the rancher or farmer pays for it. Heres an example of Californias deal.

I saw about 30 needed follow-up shots to drop the animal in that video. The majority of the hogs hit the ground before the shooter moved on to the next. I as well don't like the idea of animals suffering. I'd like to see them use 50 Beowulf for that, but it would get too expensive
Bottom line is they are a pest that needs to be managed. Its unfortunate they don't take the meat, but I think it would then fall under "sport hunting" which is against federal law.
there about 1.50 -3.00 a shot with the 50 right?.
They need what we have around here! If you shoot deer,hogs,birds you don't want just simply drop them off at the processor and they skin them and hold cook-outs and the food bank gives out vouchers for the meat all to help the less fortunate folks around. I support that fully a lot of hunters around here donate a couple every year just for that reason. Ever been hungry a nice hog will do you very good around that time
I agree! For feral hogs, poison seems appropriate, if its effects could be limited to the hogs; wouldn't want to hurt the buzzards. The only real difference between hog damage and rat damage is size & severity, with the rats bringing up the rear, IMO.
