Bonham, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/12/2017 -- For decades Texas has struggled with a growing pig epidemic, and Skyhunters Outfitters has a Texas-sized response! Feral pigs are destructive and people have been legally hunting them from the ground for quite some time. It can be tedious, hot and difficult ground hunting wild pigs that can grow up to 320 pounds each! That's a lot of bacon.
To help in the effort Skyhunter Outfitters LLC kicks it up to a whole new level. Take a helicopter ride with US Army Veteran and former Calvary Scout Pilot Chris Hitt and learn the thrill of aerial pig hunting! The invasion of feral pigs, whose population according to a 2012 study has grown to an estimated 5 million, are destroying the environment around them. Helicopter pig hunting is a vacation opportunity that gives a shooter bragging rights for a lifetime, and also helps protect this beautiful land.
Feral, or wild hogs (also called Sus scrofa) are characterized by high reproductive potential, puberty at a young age, large litters, and frequent breeding. With the possibility 2-3 litters a year of up to 10 to 15 per litter, something needs to be done to keep the hog population at bay. HB 716 allows Skyhunters Outfitter LLC to make a deal with landowners and ranchers that helps save land, crops and domestic animals while allowing shooters and hunting enthusiasts to enjoy the aerial thrill of helicopter pig hunting.
Texas pig hunting is more than just a fun pastime; it is vital as the hogs are not native to Texas. The hogs were first introduced there over 300 years ago and have been wreaking havoc on native plants and wildlife ever since. They create an imbalance in nature and are constantly destroying farmers' crops across the state. Wild hog hunting has become necessary to preserve Texas for future generations.
A Skyhunter Representative stated, "Our goal is to bring aerial depredation services to areas of Texas where landowners and farmers are hit the hardest, as well as allow hunters and shooters to experience a hunting opportunity unparalleled, that can be experienced nowhere else."
