    I don't think it's supposed to be sporting. Down south the wild pigs destroy crops. I'm thinking it's more of extermination than hunting.

    I think boar is something I would actually want to hunt, with or without a helicopter. Deer hunting is pretty boring to me.

    They are a pest down south, apparently they have no natural predator and their populations are skyrocketing. A year or 2 ago there were some in Allegheny state park and the DEC declared year long, no bag limit season on them with the intent to completely remove them.

    First thought: this must be what bored black-ops do when they're in between missions

    Second thought: not very sporting, no...sorta sad, in a weird way (and I'm no lightweight)

    ...However, as stated, if they're a menace like coy dogs/coyotes in some parts around here, drastic measures must be taken. I'm curious about one thing, though: are they just killing them to kill them, or are they harvesting them for meat as well?

    Just killing them to kill them... It's fun with a semi when your on the ground but once you start banging them they bolt and you have to cover alot of ground to get to the next group. Best to get on the close side of them on a wide field. That way you have more time to shoot more of them as they try to get away.

    I would spend a week in a chopper and pay for the ammo and fuel if any of the ranchers would let me ....

    They have made it to NYS then? I'd heard rumors that they had spotted some in Cortland County but I've not been able to confirm that or seen one for myself. Did see a DEC officer at a local store a few months ago and he was basically begging people to shoot them on sight if they come across them.

    They are a HUGE menace down South and even with the no-bag-limit-kill-them-whenever-you-can policy that's in place they still can't bring the population levels down. We saw them in the Honey Island Swamp in Louisiana where they HAVE predators (Gators) and they are STILL taking the place over.

    The only positive thing you can say about them is they taste really good.

    It is an attempt to eradicate the feral pig population in Texas. They claim these hogs cause $800 million dollars in crop and other damage a year.

    Interesting, but I can't imagine watching 90 minutes of this. The teaser was about all I'd care to watch...it would get very boring..very quickly.

    I can't confirm, but that's what I read a few different places. If they do make it here, it would give me a good reason to finally get an AR.

    Two wild boars taken in Scott | syracuse.com

    The DEC had a kill order on them. If you're out hunting they want you to shoot them.

    I work with a guy who was coming up through the Cortland area last spring and actually saw some wild pigs along the road, so they must be in New York or else they were just visiting.
