I live in Montana and my job is selling Montana ranches for sale but I own a ranch In Montague County. I bring client groups down to fish and hunt pigs. We have a lot of pigs but it is always hit or miss on any given trip. They are incredibly disappointed if they don't get to shoot at some. It is so funny because these guys up here get so hyped up about pigs and fishing for largemouth. I think pigs just travel. Sometimes I see multiple groups of 50 pigs and then sometimes I don't see any at all. If you have fresh rooted up ground that is a pretty good sign you have them on your place at that time. Game Cameras are a God send. Drones would be even better I bet. Would a drone be legal for pigs? I would sure think so. If you can hunt out of a helicopter you should be able to spot with a drone?

We actually trap, dog hunting, and helicopter hunts and we can't seem to control them. I don't know the long term solution for this or if there is one.

From TPWD Outdoor Annual 2016-2017:

"Remote-controlled Hunting
A person may not engage in computer-assisted remote hunting of any animal or bird or provide or operate facilities for computer-assisted remote hunting if the animal or bird being hunted is located in Texas."

Would the remote control device be considered a computer assisting device? In my nonlegal opinion, yes. The drones with the weight capacity to handle a firearm, optics, cameras and firing control devices, are normally controlled via a tablet and cost in the thousands of dollars range. Plus you have the liability issues of controlling where the bullet travels, property lines, limited field of view, and handling of the recoil.

That's assuming you mean having a gun attached to the drone.

I am not a lawyer but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express once.

I think he was saying to use the drones just for spotting no?

it's been that way for a while now. You can have a rifle with you while bow hunting just for hogs or anything but deer.

Feral hogs can be quite smart IMHO especially the adult ones. They're quite good avoiding hunters especially with their sense of smell. Though sometimes, you'll be surprised on how easily you can catch them. So its probably they're easy to spot or really hard to find.

I've asked our local outfitter about their behavior and he said that feral hogs are indeed intelligent but sometimes their heightened senses at night can get the best of them against a hunter who knows how they behave.

Drones can’t be used for game animals. I would call the GW first so there is no misunderstanding
