group assessment from the other 2 in the helicopter including the guide.

And counter assessment made by you at home on the couch?

Hunting from a helicopter with a bow makes about as much sense as:

* People who have luxury automobiles parked at their mobile homes

* Christmas goods for sale after Halloween

* Rollerskating up hill

It doesn't seem very effective unless injuring an animal is the goal. I rather just kill them quick.

There is nothing more that I love than a helicopter as a tool to control hogs, but it seems like a waste to go about it with a stick and string. To each their own.

I've seen some stupid chit before, but this takes the cake. Just because you can do something, doesn't mean you should.

Someone should have been riding shotgun to finish off the hogs. No guarantee they died just because they had a couple of arrows in them. Low draw weight, velocity diminished by several factors, hits to the thickest parts of the pork.

No guarantee.

I have seen hogs with bullet wounds and other injuries. Found one with part of a wooden arrow and practice tip in it below the skin.

If you can shoot a hog from a helicopter with a bow that is a heck of a shot. I watched pigman do it on his show. I thought it was cool!!

Come on guys! Give the poor guy a break for once.

No question there, shooting a moving target from a moving platform with turbulence is impressive

Give you a up for hitting with bow from air. I am confused2 why. Like was said earlier you can do it, but why. Waisted time, fuel, and opertunities on hogs. PETA people could use this as advertisement for cruelty. Just my 2cents
