Who ever it was in the helicopter was not bad shot to hit those hogs while in a helo. and the hog running, wounder what fire arm he was using sounds like a surpressoed 223 but i may be wrong.

Re: Helicopter Hog Huntin'

just watched hog shooting viedo, ive shot a lot of hogs and coyotes from a chopper, while doing pasture managment& game surveys, most shots are from 10 to 20 yards its windy & bumpy an r-22 chopper has a really small cockpit, shooter and pilot are shoulder to shoulder,you are close to the ground usually 30-50 ft.going 30-35 mph, the m-4 & ar-15 would seam like the right choice of weapon, not so, hot brass flying around the inside of the cockpit hitting you in the face , hands, going down your neck , aint much fun, not to mention it gets all over the floor and can jam the foot controls, seen it happen ! heres a few suggestions if you decide to give chopper shooting a try.wear good wrap around glasses,double check your seat belt, dont eat a big greasy breakfast,take a 12. gage tactial with full choke 3" with heavy shot. it should shoot a pattern about the size of a volley ball at 15 yrds and basket ball sized at 20 yards.put a dove ammo bag full of ammo between your feet.the 12 ga. will knock the hell out of a pig at close range,gps your flight path, so you can go back on the ground and pick up the pigs, with a truck and trailer, if you you dont pick up the pigs you will draw every coyote and scavanger, in the country & and pigs stink real bad laying in the sun for a few days.who ever picks up pigs take a handgun,could come in handy,by the way 12 ga.shotgunshells are a lot easier to clean up than .223 brass and there wont be as many of them. p.s. watch for power and phone lines they can ruin your day good luck

It's amazing to consider the collective experience represented her on LRH. I never even thought about a shotgun or the other issues mentioned, Thanks for the input.....30-338
