“Here Come the Pork Choppers”
via Swamplot – August 8, 2011
After 4 hours of classroom training near Hobby Airport in “the first Professional Helicopter Hog Hunting Safety Course in the nation that is specific to hunters who would be hiring a helicopter service to hunt feral hogs,” reporter Sonia Smith goes out on her first aerial wild hog shoot, AR-15 in hand — near Knox City, with the same helicopter pilot who took Ted Nugent on a 30-plus pig run back in March. A new law effective September 1 allows sport hunters to rent helicopter gunner seats for hog or coyote kills, but the rush has already begun. Cedar Ridge Aviation’s Dustin Johnson tells her he’s scheduled 30 flights so far, “including one for a group of ATF agents from New York.” [Texas Monthly; course info; previously on Swamplot] Photo: Cedar Ridge Aviation

Escondido Ranch was recently the ‘Texas stop’ for Eric Edmundson, a wounded Army Sargeant & Purple Heart recipient, on his quest to fulfill a lifelong dream of hunting big game across the United States. His 9,000 mile journey is supported by the Wounded Warrior Project and will include hunts for gator, pronghorn and exotics. At Escondido Ranch, Eric was able to harvest a beautiful Axis buck (pictured here), thanks to perfect heart/lung shot, with the aide of his custom made Razor, equipped with a joy stick. He also managed to help the ranch out with a little wild hog eradication! Read more about Eric’s incredible journey in the press release below:
