Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Bill proposes hunting feral�hogs from air | Latest News | "BEXAR COUNTY – There are an estimated 1.5 million feral hogs in the state, with many now living in South Texas. In the past, landowners could hire helicopter companies to kill hogs on their property, but new bill before the state could expand the hunt to the air.

Currently, landowners can hire companies to come in and kill feral hogs on their own property, but the landowners must be there at the time of the hunt.

Now, State Rep. Sid Miller (R-Stephenville) has authored a bill (House Bill 836) which would allow landowners to lease hunting rights to companies who could then fly hunters in to shoot the hogs from the air, allowing ranchers and farmers to make some money off of the hog problem."

As some of you know, feral hogs have been a part of the Sheriff Dan Rhodes series for over 20 years now. Maybe I'll have a helicopter hunt in the next one. Assuming there is a next one.
