somebody's been watching too much Black Hawk Down.

Um...this isn't dogfighting. If it's not illegal, then who the fark cares? And it's a lot more humane than forcing them to fight to the death.
 
2008-03-10 12:34:32 PM  
well I think using a helicopter is a lot less "sporting" than your typical hunt. "like shooting fish in a barrel" comes to mind.
 
2008-03-10 12:34:51 PM  
They're a nuisance animal. My state is begging hunters to kill more of them.

I'd love to shoot one from a helicopter.

In unrelated news, Rosie cancels vacation plans in Florida.


As for hunting hogs from helicopters, they are not nice animals, and they breed like, um, swine. There wasa a story recently about one of the big military bases in Georgia that has people who do nothing but hunt hogs, who are tearing up the place. At least this guy isn't using Hellfire missiles.

Any hog that runs is VC. Any hog that stands still is well-disciplined VC.
 
2008-03-10 12:55:20 PM  
I'm guessing none of these protesters has ever been charged by a wounded (or just really mad) hog. They can't charge a helicopter.

/glad I had my .45
 
2008-03-10 01:03:33 PM  
it would be funny if his chopper crashed whilst doing this

"How can you shoot women and children?"

"Easy. Don't lead 'em as much."

Guess you've never shot at objects from a helicopter. Hogs aren't so bad, you just don't lead 'em as much.

Can't wait till the Mets fans protest over Barry Bonds.

Have another badastic year...
 
2008-03-10 02:55:26 PM  
oops,

didnt see filth's reply.

/Full Metal Jacket!
 
2008-03-10 02:55:52 PM  
if an animal's "season" is year-round, then why should anyone be giving a flying donkey?

/eating bacon right now so I'm getting a kick out of these replies
 
2008-03-10 02:56:24 PM  
We'll picket. If we're willing to have 27 people arrested, it's obvious we're committed.

That's a ten percent drop in Marlins attendance.

Feral hogs in the US are an invasive and highly destructive species that most state wildlife management agencies would like to see eradicated.

This guy is doing a public service. Sounds like fun too. If I had the money to spend like that, I'd be doing it in a heartbeat.

brilliant! just plain brilliant!
 
2008-03-10 02:58:05 PM  
Shouldn't they be happy they have a pitcher who can aim?

And does anyone else see anything wrong with that headline?

I see what you did there.

i guess this shown just how clueless marlins fans are. the problem with feral hogs is real and substantial. any method used to eradicate feral hogs without adversely impacting other animals should be encouraged by responsible environmental minded people. those who want to protest the killing of feral hogs need to understand the problem and just shut up.

Should fly over Ybor City. Lots of hogs over there.
 
2008-03-10 03:01:04 PM  
Dear Environmentalists:

These hogs are likely feral pigs, or feral pigs crossed with wild pigs. They wreak havoc on the ecosystem. Other animals will thank you for getting rid of them.

Thank you, ozone, that's the first person that popped into my head when I saw the headline ;-)

Shoots. And leaves.

But what they didn't say was he hit a Jenny Craig gathering. Now that just isn't nice.

I am skeptical that anyone belonging to the "Palm Beach County Environmental Coalition" is a sports fan in the first place.

/What Filth, Oldebayer, and nerfball said.
 
2008-03-10 03:03:37 PM  
Feral hogs are a nuisance. Oh, and shooting a moving target while yourself moving is not exactly easy.
 
2008-03-10 03:03:49 PM  
This is a non-story.

Even Les knows pigs can't fly.

/as God is my witness, I came here for the WKRP references.
 
2008-03-10 03:05:10 PM  
On my first scan of the headline I had a vision of a helecopter equipped with this bizzare contraption that catapults hogs out of it.

My second thought was the WKRP connection, which has been mentioned already.

As god as my witness, I thought hogs could fly!
 
2008-03-10 03:05:28 PM  
sounds like a farkin blast.

Wild hogs are a non-native invasive species throughout much of the southern and eastern US. They cause damage to native plants, contribute to erosion and can damage agriculture crops. These are not fuzzy raccoons, rabbits or dogs. They are also vicious in some cases, and hunting them on the ground can sometimes result in you having to bring one down as its charging at you. These things should be killed at every opportunity.

And then cooked.

Uh oh - this could seriously affect game attendance.

Is this really any differant than sitting in a tree-stand? Okay, your higher up so you can see more, but your accurancy has to be a hell of a lot more spot-on. And from a moving platform, no less...I have never seen a chopper that can really hold perfectly still.
 
2008-03-10 03:07:12 PM  
Isn't this a repeat of the Star Jones thread in showbiz??
 
2008-03-10 03:07:16 PM  
I've shot hogs from my patio, so I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

/they were not only ON my lawn, they were excavating it
 
2008-03-10 03:08:23 PM  
how this was not done already shocks me

/why should we do an article on you?
//Because I'm so farking good!!

By hogs .. does they mean fat chicks?
 
2008-03-10 03:10:36 PM  
I am told that they are musky and are not great eating, but can be made into decent sausage. Kill em all, farking destructive swine.

I'm surprised this hasn't turned into a bacon thread yet.

How do you get the hog in the chopper?

And is it like skeet? Pull!
 
2008-03-10 03:12:38 PM  
After my years stationed at Schofield Barracks and spending some quality time with boar in their adopted envrionmant (they were imported), I have little love for them.

Ferrel hogs are the scourge of the animal kingdom. They are invasive and destructive to native wildlife. These animal "rights" activists should STFU and be hunted from a helicopter by said pitcher. That's full of awesome, I want to do this too. From an article here in Texas.
Aubrey said he has killed more than 400 coyotes and more than 400 feral hogs this year from the air.

""Helicopters are a wonderful platform for shooting," Kyle said, adding that pig hunting grows in significance as land owners seek to protect fawns as well as property values.

In one three-week period, Aubrey said, he killed more than 1,000 coyotes on the 6666 Ranch in King County, some 200 miles north of San Angelo. All hunts are cleared by Texas Parks and Wildlife.

Instead of using shotguns to kill hogs, the Langes use AK-47s and AR-15s with 70-round ammo clips."

AWESOME!
