Helicopters Effectiveness on A Feral Hog Eradication Program:

The helicopter is simply a tool for breaking down and pressuring out large concentrated groups in small areas. Once the groups are broken, it is usually easier to trap the smaller and dispersed groups. Helicopters are not a substitute for ground trapping. Both methods should be used in conjunction to reduce the overall numbers in the area. The helicopter simply has the affect of being able to eradicate a large number of feral hogs in a short period of time.

It is cost effective when the animals are quickly found and a proficient gunner is able to cull the herd before they disperse. There is an immense amount of work and preparation before hiring a helicopter to reduce feral hog numbers. Landowners should be accurately monitoring the animals and their patterns.

Things to Consider:
