A mile and a half SE of the milo field the copter got 53 in one group. A mile and a half SW they bagged 31 in one group. A little more than a half mile East they got 135 in one group. I shot over 24 in four days just out of my pickup right before the helicopter came. Someone dropped the ball on this one!!!
From my outsider perspective you sounded a little on the aggressive side so that may have put some people off. $50 a day to help you save some of your crop . Did you charge the locals and the helicopter shooters $50 a day ?
If you had said as a favour to LRH members I will only charge you $50 a week to shoot as many pigs as you want and you can camp for free it may have been different.
It costs a hog shooter a lot of money just to get to your front gate .
Not having a go at you just puttin forward the other guys situation .
However I have no doubt that some richer shooters that don't have to travel far will pay that .
