Heli Hog Hunting: Completed & Vid added
« on: October 18, 2019, 06:28:57 PM »
So, no joke, I've been offered a trip to go hog hunting via chopper. I of course said yes and need to start looking at providers. Anyone done it? With who? Open time frame....thinking Feb ish would be a good time of the year to visit Texas.

Sure.....not a problem as I could use a 2nd shooter. Right now looking at....


Www.sky-hunters.com

I've talked to the owner/operator/pilot and sounds like a great operation.  Since I'll be there a few days to allow for weather delays we will most likely book a night hunt with thermal gear. Gotta do that of course.

Sounds like a blast. Survival tip: Don't shoot the pilot.  :yike:

Prebooking is $1800 an hour. Just write that check and I'll take extra pics of he and I sending rounds into bacon.
