I hear its one heck of an experience . Not much of a hunt though more of a slaughter . My buddy just got back and they killed 75 . He was telling me that they also donate the meat and there is a few families that hang around and will go get them and get meat if you don't want it . I've never been so this is just hear say from my buddies .

I think it would be a cool experience, but I'm not paying $1500 an hour. For that kind of cash you can get a killer lease and hunt all year. jmo

I got to go this past weekend. My neighbor who owns a large ranch hired a helicopter to fly for pigs and coyotes. I got to go for about 3 hours and we got 25 coyotes and about that many hogs. It was one of the most fun things I have ever done. We used 12 gauge shotguns.I hope I get to go next year also as they do this once a year.

Never hunted them from a helicopter but Have seen tons of them while penning cattle with a heli on the ranch in Zavala Co. The only thing I have shot is cattle that didn't want to act right. That was with a 22 pistol with ratshot.

I dont understand why it would cost that much. You can hire a chopper to pen your cattle for a hell of a lot less than that. You pay by the hour.


Bartender, bring me anything except brake fluid, cause I don't plan on stopping!

Well worth the cost to do once, most fun I have ever had! Flew for almost 2 hrs and shot 25 pigs, and 5 coyotes. The AR was a blast to shoot but had the most fun with 12 gauge with buckshot, folds up large and small piggys alike!
