-- Feral hogs, one of the greatest ecological threats to crops and livestock in Texas, are not from the Lone Star State at all but actually imports from Russia and Spain. Years ago travelers from Russia and Spain brought hogs indigenous to their native countries to Texas for food and sport. When they left the hogs were not eradicated and many escaped. The life of a hog is simple; eat, destroy, and mate. In light of this dangerous cycle, the feral hog population has greatly increased in size and is now destroying the very land that has nurtured them. To save the natural habitat and land of Texas the state has implemented helicopter hog hunting (https://sky-
to inhibit this non-indigenous creature. Many hunters and hunting businesses have come up with different ways to eradicate this dangerous pest, however, the most effective method is the implementation of helicopter hog hunting in Texas.
Feral hogs can weigh anywhere from 100 to 400 pounds. They would attack humans, no matter what the size as many get quite large. To hunt them across vast acreage can not only be tiring in the heat of the day, but you also have to tread and travel many miles to even come upon a group of hogs. With a helicopter you can easily scout and find feral hogs concentrated in areas, making a far more timely and comfortable hunting experience. While hunting from the ground can be extremely tasking physically, hunting from the air is less strenuous but much more exciting, making the whole experience far more enjoyable.
Skyhunter Outfitters, LLC (https://sky-hunters.com/
) is the premier helicopter hog hunting experience. The thrill of the hunt greatly increased with the help of a local retired army scout pilot with a history of flights overseas. Knowing the topography of the land, having hunting and scouting skills, and
Understanding the local environment and feral hog habits combine into a very unique and satisfying hunting experience.
