Aerial Hog Hunting

Reply
 
Before reading the following comment, please search & read Hogs in river in China. It is my opinion that Aerial hog hunting should be classified a violation of the Clean Water Act, because of the rotting carcasses left to contaminate the states water supply. Yes, the water which we bathe in, cook with and drink,etc. Dept.of Health & Human Resources should have in-volvement in such a proposal,not to mention other numerous governmental & environmental organizations. This act would also be a poor means of conservation to other wildlife. Just to mention,the wild turkey would injest maggot worms from the decomposing hogs & it's intracles. Bacteria would cause the turkey to contract intestinal disorders & inflamation & cause an agonizing death. Runoff, would contaminate foliage where deer graze, instesd of brouse. The negatives far outweigh the positives of such a practice. I could go on and on, but there are much better means of controlling the feral hogs without putting human lives at risk.

You keep forgetting that the state/fed agency's rules do not apply to themselves. They don't consider the environment if THEY make a profit, but they will fine a citizen into bankruptcy if the citizen harms the environment to make a buck. The rules only apply to people they can regulate and profit from...US. This is the worst way to effectively kill hogs. After a flight or two, the hogs will hear the chopper coming from miles away, and go hide in the deepest gnarliest brush they can find. This little racket won't last long, because people will get tired of paying such a high price to MAYBE shoot at one or two hogs.

They just think that this will be OK in the public's eye, because it will not cost taxpayers for wildlife agents and executives to fly around shooting from choppers. Might as well have brought the SWAT teams in while theyre at it...they need to practice with all the new assault rifles and tactical gear.

They better not be flying over WMA's and disturbing the deer populations.....you know, the ones that have ATV trails shutdown for and scouting prohibited almost year-round over.

Don't trust the thousands of hunters that hunt every year, without poaching or breaking laws, to step in and clean up this problem. LDWF, no matter how much of OUR money they blow, CANNOT compete against the local hunters in numbers of hog kills or efficiency. This is so stupid....

We really need to find out what A-hole owns the helicopter/outfitting company that keeps pushing this crap for his business. Someone is lobbying and making buddy deals for this incompetent plan to keep surfacing. Normally, when something doesn't work or function, its trashed or disappears. This is still an issue....why is that?!
They messed up in their business plan because they dont own 50000 acres to hunt over, so they tried to do it on public land, using state agents. CORRUPTION....sell the helicopter, chalk it up as a failure, write off the loss, and move on.

exactly....this will fail even faster than the first time. I dont think they even killed 200. i thought it was under 50 lol..Bow season is right around the corned, and I know, according to pretty much every hunter in this state, they will NOT be flying for the next 6 months....or they will really be hiding from some lynch mobs....and pigs are smart, they will learn, and when they hear anything coming overhead, they will scatter. I'm going to be sitting right here to rub salt in the wound when this fails....AGAIN!!!

clean water act?
A violation of the clean water act? really? Wow, you guys are really getting desperate. What happened? The 'Save Our WMA' thing didn't brew up the support that you had hoped? If you guys are this upset about the choppers, you're going to blow a gasket when we start poisoning them. Coming soon to an area near you.

violation of clean water act haha
You guys are really reaching now! Guess when we shoot a duck and it flies off and dies in the marsh that is a violation also? Or when we clean fish and throw the heads and guts in the water that is a violation?

Pigs are the devil plain and simple. Every means of eradication should be used to get these swine out of our state

Outlaw quadraped pure and simple. Shoot'em all by all means. Eat what you want, buzzards can have what is left. I want the off my land for the deer, turkey, rabbits, native plants etc. They are destroying our beautiful Louisiana. Globally the most invasive species. Invasive pests. Period.

Clean Water??
Man LSucrazy and 300mag are really butt hurt. Who cares if they dont get the meat. animals die everyday in the woods and turkeys arnt dieing from that. kill um all, by any means ness. id bet if it was free yall would jump on that chopper in a sec. ha. i agree that a season needs to be open yr round for them, but the season has nothing to do with the choppers. Choppers only work in places like tx where there is low brush. dont freak out, itll pass in a lil while.

Ducks>Hogs
The diff is that ducks are a valued species. Nobody cares about a hog. its an invasive species. Everyone i see i shoot. Sometimes i recover them, but mostly just leave um where they fall. So yes id be upset if ducks were being killed just to kill, but we are talking about trash. cause thats all hogs are is trash.
