Texas Approves Wild Hog Hunting From Helos

Season Opens Thursday For 'Qualified Landowners'

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission has approved rules allowing "qualified landowners" to begin hunting feral pigs on their land from helicopters, with no bag limit and no fee.

The rules are designed to help cull the number of wild hogs in Texas, which has been rising rapidly ... and are currently estimated at around 2 million.

The Houston Chronicle reports that the rules allow the hunting of coyotes as well as wild hogs from helicopters in accordance with House Bill 716, which was approved by the Texas legislature. Under the terms of the bill, landowners or their agents are able to pay helicopter operators for their services in helping reduce the hog population. All that is required is filing the necessary paperwork. There is no fee associated with the filing.

Texas Department of Agriculture statistics show that a single wild hog can be responsible for as much as $500 in crop damage and other wildlife habitat each year.
