    HOT DAM where the hell do I sign up for that. That looks like some kick ass fun right there. I tell you what if they went back and picked them all up boy that would be the bbq to end all bbq's.

    Looks to be shooting a shotgun with some kick ass buck shot. Hell I would do that just for the fun and I love riding in choppers and shooting things.

    CP, the trailer of the video said they use a AR and a AK. I thought a shotgun might have been used as well, until I read the end trailer.

    Pork !!

    I hope they stopped to collect them, but what a great job being paid to shoot wild pigs. Then there's always the chance of grateful farmer, beautiful daughter, stay over night - sorry I'm getting a bit carried away there !! ;)

    Weather they stopped to pick up the meat or not these pigs are very distructfive to crops to the tune of many of thousanads of USD a year for the farmers. If nothing else these carcuses will fertilize the land.

    The feral hogs that don't get shot will eat the dead ones in many cases.

    They're eating up the state of Texas and many other states, so all those PETA people out there should eat a big plate of pork.

    Sanctioned or legally justified, winging or gut-shooting an animal without finishing it off just ain't right. I HOPE that's the part they edited out, but considering the cost of a helo hunt, I have to assume that every shot that drew blood counted as a kill in the crews log.
    All I get from the video is that someone is running a "Wound A Feral Hog" program using taxpayers' money.

    Program is paid for in full by farmers.

    That was some pretty impressive shooting right there. Any chance we could get a hold of some more people like that around here? :D

    I just want to know when it's happening so that I can follow them around and clean up! I'm thinking a dump truck with an 8-pig cooker in tow.

    Do the farmers finish the pigs off?

    You do realize you could make a killing off that by making a traveling BBQ catering service. ;)

    Well I dont really know if the farmers finish the pigs off or not. It's just a video I found on u tube. Seeing how this is a paid for extermination project and not a hunt, I more than kinda of doubt that the farmers finish them off. However, I bet these farmers dont have to buy bacon or sasuage......ever!

    Somehow I have a feeling that these guys with the helicopter do go back with a large truck or trucks and recover as much meat as they can or even more than likely negotiate a deal with a local outfit that can process the meat and put a few more $$$ in their pocket.
