I just wanted to post the important reasons for taking out hogs by any method. This is a short video showing milo fields in 2015 before we started actively hunting hogs. We started early in 2016 with one heli-hog hunt with 100 kills. We have now switched to thermal hunts. 13 hunts produced over 300 hogs. The farmer's yield was way up this year and he is extremely thankful. We are going to be adding a purpose built vehicle and expanding to other farms near Goliad. I got a little flack on the Varmint forum showing some coyote kills from a helicopter. I didn't realize some people had an issue with heli-hunting. I think people may not realize that you have that you have to kill 70% of hogs in an area just to keep the population stagnant. The hogs aren't going away so kill all you can. Helping the farmers is a win-win.
