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.
