    Sounds like a gimmick- - - -I wonder what it costs to run that chopper and pay a pilot skillful enough to herd pigs with it? I don't have any concern for the "ethics" of it- - - -feral hogs are sort of overgrown rats that do a lot of crop damage, and probably carry some nasty diseases as well.

    Most outfits cost about $2000 for a 20-30 min hunt.

    I'd pay double if I could use a M32 MGL 40mm launcher.

    My neighbor is paying $6,000 for a 2 hr flight to pig hunt. He's getting some buddies together to pitch in and divide the time.

    I ain't gonna pay to hunt something in the air I can hunt on the ground for free.

    If I'm going to pay $6000 to hunt something, it won't be something with "feral" as part of its name.

    Racking up body count numbers doesn't appeal to me at all. I'd shoot a pig to eat, maybe some for predator control, but the joy of killing for the sake of killing has passed me by. I realize the reason for it, but it's just not for me. Getting soft in my twilight years.
    Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.

    What if it's feral elk? :tooth:
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.

    Not for any elk. I've already killed the last big one I care to kill (and pack out). :jester:
