We have landed a 41,000 acre ranch north of Houston that is covered in feral swine and coyotes. The owner wants to run a couple of helicopter hunts over the land and thin out or wipe out his growing problem. These eradication pig hunts are the most fun you can have with a gun in your hand.
The pig hunts are conducted from Friday to Sunday, arrive Friday for safety briefing and instruction, then start flying. We run two shooters in the chopper at once with Ar-15′s. Flights are run in shifts of 30-45 minutes (or till you run out of ammo), everyone has an opportunity throughout the day to fly at different times.
Shooters typically run ar-15′s as this is a wooded area and we would be flying above the trees. you can use a shotgun if you wish some of our clients have had good luck with them in the past.
In the past we have averaged from 200-500 pigs in a weekend and usually 12-14 coyotes.
We will be setting up a couple of trips in the spring in February and March, they tend to fill up quickly and if you are interested please let me know.
Regular price is $3,750, but the new ranch does not have a lodge, there is a hotel just 10 minutes away. We provide; food, soft drinks, and beer after the hunting is done, safety gear and instruction, state permits, helicopter, pilot and chopper time.
We do not provide firearms, ammo or a valid Texas hunting license ($55 for non resident)
Price for these eradication pig hunts in Texas will be $3,500 for the weekend.
