Helicopter hog hunting is a lifetime experience whether you are a seasoned hunter who has been on various hunting expeditions, or someone who has never been on a hunt and would like to feel the exhilaration and thrill for the first time. Helicopter hog hunting in Texas is a safe, fun filled and meaningful challenge which will give you many stories to tell for years to come. What sets this apart from other hunts is the idea of covering lots of terrain in a short amount of time, following herds from the sky, with this bird’s eye view you have all the makings for a perfect hunting adventure for the shooting enthusiast. Helicopter hog hunting are about 2 hours long and are not too taxing physically so after onsite training almost anyone can go for helicopter hog hunts. It is highly recommended for shooters who would like to enjoy the thrill and exploits of a good helicopter hunt but do not have the time or want to do something more exciting than ground based hunting.

 

The added benefit of helicopter hog hunting is that you are actually helping to protect wildlife and land conservation. The non indigenous feral hogs are a destructive species which does irreparable damage to local animals as well as farms and crops. Since the wild hogs are not part of the natural ecosystem it is important to keep the feral hog numbers down, helping to preserve the beauty of Texas for future generations. The best part of this expedition is that you get to experience our amazing down home hospitality at our hunting lodge as well as have an experience like no other in either of our two helicopters. Come hunt with us from the sky and you and your fellow hunters can feel the joy of the helicopter hog hunting that lies ahead.

 

Our jet engine Bell 206 helicopters are expertly flown by a former Army Cavalry Scout helicopter pilot! We have the experience to get you on feral pigs ensuring plenty of opportunity to shoot! Whether you’ve been thinking about a trip with a couple of hunting buddies, with the family or maybe even a corporate getaway; either way, you’ve found the right place! Our helicopter hog hunting packages are all inclusive with no hidden fees or up-charges for items such as gun rentals or extra ammunition!

 

Your Helicopter Hog Hunting Schedule with Skyhunter Outfitters

 

Your hunt begins when you arrive at our lodge, just an hour north of Dallas, the evening before you fly. Our chef prepares southern, home cooked style meals and deserts for you to enjoy. After dinner, we relax by the fire pit and discuss helicopter safety, aerial gunnery techniques and what to expect the next morning. From there, enjoy the rest of your evening with friends and family around the fire.

The next morning begins with breakfast before dawn. Once everyone is ready, we head to the hangar and pair shooters off into groups of two for a safety and aerial gunnery refresher and “dress rehearsal” with the helicopter. Each shooter will practice safety around the “bird” and will have the opportunity to get comfortable with the shooting positions using the harness and firearm. After that, it’s the sound of a jet engine, blades turning and the adrenaline rush that comes with slaying feral hogs from a helicopter!

A Brief History of Feral Hogs in Texas

The most destructive species in North America.

 

Domesticated pigs were first introduced to North America 300 years ago by Spanish settlers. They were brought over as a source of food for the explorers and before long some escaped into the American wilds. Over the years their population grew allowing feral hogs to gain a foothold on the continent. Later, in the early 1900s Russian boars were brought to the United States for sport hunting. These animals also escaped and bread with other feral hogs in the area. Russian boars interbreeding with feral pigs contributes to coloration, size, head shape and tusk length variations as you travel across the American South.

 

Texas is no stranger to fighting the feral hog epidemic. Farmers and ranchers across the State have been struggling for over 30 years with a huge feral hog population boom. For example, a sounder of feral hogs can damage up to 50+ acres per night in cornfields. In 2011 Texas introduced House Bill 716 which allows eradication of this invasive species from helicopters by private companies and shooters. We are proud to offer this opportunity to sportsmen and hunters in a very safe and fun atmosphere.

My kids and I had an amazing experience with Chris. Having never done this before he takes the safety seriously and his piloting skills are both fun and comforting. When the hogs cooperated it was stellar but even when they didn’t it was still a bucket list experience that I hope to repeat. ..

 

James Xu

As a recreational helicopter pilot myself, I know how demanding and dangerous this type of flying can be. So I did my due diligence of most of the outfitters. Many of them use Robinson R-44. I fly R-44 regularly. But I don't trust R-44 with these maneuvers. I am glad that we have selected Skyhunter for many reasons, such as pilot experience and type of aircraft. Both of our pilots were excellent and safe. And we got lots of hogs! ..

Bucket List! Traveled all the way from Utah and it was easily one of the coolest things I've ever done. They were very concerned about safety and making it a great hunt for all of us. Chris was a skilled pilot, and found us a ton of hogs. ..
