We’re you hunting the Wagner?


No high fences. We don't hunt zoos. Hunting free range, fair chase game for over 50 Years.

Not sure, never caught the ranch name and never got a chance to meet the owner of the place. I was talking to a friend of my dads telling him that we shoot pigs from the chopper once or twice a year. He asked if I could arrange one, I told him I need at least 10k acres that has pigs and I can make it happen. His face lit up with a big smile and says that he has a good friend that has just the place to fly. A flew months later, were up blasting away.

Did you get anywhere near Hwy 70 west of Vernon? We just came through there today, and there were 8 or 10 dead hogs along the road in one spot. And I don't mean were you shooting along the road. But I thought a bunch of wounded ones might have ended up there. Or maybe a semi hit a whole sounder . . .

Yes, we were west of Hwy 70 but very close to Medicine Mound.

How many magazines do you carry? I saw brass catchers. Spent brass a hazard to the helicopter? Reloader? Just curious....looks like an effective control method.

Yeah, cant get in the chopper without deflectors or bags. We flew the 777 Ranch 5 or 6 years ago and someone was riding shotgun and a spent casing from a AK47 hit the windscreen and bounced in between the pilots sunglasses and face, that was the last time we didnt make sure everyone has deflectors or bags. I bring about 8-10 mags up with a few of them being 60rd mags.

We flew back on March 5th, I wouldn't think they would be ours.

Sounds like you were flying over part of the Wagner. Killer bucks on that old ranch.

All those on the road outside Vernon were cleaned up by Friday morning.
