Hogs are terribly misunderstood and maligned creatures.  We should strive more to appreciate their nature and seek to train them to focus their energies on things that are injurious to the harmony of our environment.  Then perhaps we could change our hearts toward them so that they are not so repugnant to us.  Each creature has its own beauty, its own unique and self-defining character.  Ah, the wild boar... a perilous animal.  Kind and gentle to its offspring, yet vicious and deadly to any who would seek to cause them harm.  But for humanity's vain and selfish consideration, the hog might well be thought of as a magnificent and honorable beast.  Seek not to harm them, grant them mercy... and if out of some misplaced sense of primal instinct you MUST hunt the poor, humble hog... use a .458 Lott or a .50BMG...

Anyone wanting to do a Helo Hog hunt needs to let me know.  CFII & I both got invites to go do that while out at the ranch in texas, its not cheap but I understood it to be you pay for the cost of ammo and 1 hour of flight time and they will give you a full auto to use up there.

I can give you an idea of hourly costs for flying if you want to know. I keep debating whether i would rather be the pilot or the gunner. I think thd pilot would be my choice.

Should be a sweet set-up. Perfect for varmit killing.
 
I scanned most of the reply's so if someone already suggested it, sorry. But I'd recommend a hunter safety course of some sort. Would cover some of the "hunting" aspect, and all of the gun handling and other "safety" stuff.
 
Good luck

Feral hogs are non-native intruders that are very destructive to property, compete with native game and overtake their habitats.  Compounding the problem is the fact they reproduce rapidly and have no natural predators to control their numbers throughout most of their range.  In short, they are invasive pests that need to be controlled.  Game agencies are actively studying ways to eradicate them.  While I respect their ferocity, intelligence, and senses, I show them no compassion and kill as many of them as I can at every available opportunity.  I truly do view them as mobile bullet test media.
