In what Greg Hackney likened to “a carnival ride with a shotgun,” the Sportsman TV host recently traveled to Violet for an airboat hunt to take down some feral hogs in the marsh.
Hackney had the time of his life as the team of airboats flushed the hogs while shooters finished them off with buckshot.
Producer Jared Serigné captured all the footage, and land manager Ronnie Adams organized the trip, got permission from the land owners and made sure safety was everyone’s top priority.
On the hunt, the crew came across several areas of marsh that had been damaged by hogs, a serious problem in light of the state’s ongoing issues with coastal erosion.
