Default Texas hog hunting from choppers

Texas may let hunters shoot feral hogs from choppers.

Looks like another reason that TX rocks. I may not live there now but I will always think it is an awesome state. I mean who wouldn't love to shoot wild animals from a helicopter??

I just don't see the sport in it.

But I am not a hunter myself... nothing wrong with it.. just not for me.

Well, I'd imagine it's more difficult to shoot a hog from a helicopter than it is from a tree. I don't see the sport in sitting in a tree with a gun to shoot an animal when the animal has, well, itself. However, I still eat the animal when it's shot, lol

I wouldn't get on the ground with those feral hogs. they are freaking MEAN little fools. I think that the chopper still makes it sporting.

WAR Wild Hogs!

I guess i'm not really into hunting but i dotn mind as long as it isnt just widespread slaughter of the animal and that at least their is an element of sport in it.. You know that it isnt just too easy, as to me that defies the object.

Plus i always think what you hunt should be put to use in some way, and there can be nothign better than eating it eh!

It ain't 'hunting' and it ain't 'sport'......

It's about killin' pests, that some doofus turned loose thinking they would be fun to hunt and 'free pork'. They ain't sport animals, they ain't javelina, they're feral. Kill all of them crop ruining, rooting, useless critters, and do the same to the guys that turned em loose.
