“Two-thirds of the feral hog population has to be killed just to maintain their numbers. They are fervent breeders and we’ve found, for the money, aerial control is the most effective for feral hog management. We are reaching out to Texans asking them not to be too conservative with their harvests. We are encouraging them to [cooperate] with their neighbors, share costs and join forces. Working together is the only way we can gain the upper hand on this exploding nuisance and dangerous problem.” ~ TX F&G Director of Wildlife

Helicopter Hog Hunting has been on Dustin Ellermann’s bucket list since before Texas made it legal. He recently got to participate in another hunt with Cedar Ridge Aviation outside of Knox City, Texas, and wrote about his journey here:
