Frequently Asked Questions
When can I go heli-hog hunting?
Our main season is mid January through the end of May annually. Occasionally we can accommodate trips during the summer.
How many hogs can I kill?
Our per hour average is very consistent averaging 18-20 per hour, maxing out at about 40 per hour depending upon shooting performance.
Where do I fly into?
Fly into Midland International Airport (MAF) or San Angelo Regional Airport (SJT) from there you will need to rent a vehicle to travel to one of the lodges.
Are there any age/weight restrictions?
Shooters must be 18 years of age for safety purposes. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Weight depends on overall persons’ size, 265 pounds is the single shooter maximum.
Safety is our number one priority and there are weight limits per helicopter. The weight of shooters will determine whether we take one or two people out per flight.
Can I bring my own gun?
Yes you can! We do require you bring your own suppressor or use one of ours. Please note, direct impingement AR15’s do not hold up for very long in the helicopter. We shoot steel case ammo which runs rather dirty, a piston driven AR platform would be the only customer firearms that are allowed.
What if the weather doesn't cooperate? What is the policy for weather cancellations?
The last thing we want to do is send you away without experiencing your helicopter hog hunt. Our hunts are 2 and a half days, we schedule an extra half day of flight time to accommodate for any potential weather delays. If the weather is not going to let up, we will reschedule you at no charge. With lighter weather it is possible that a window of flight opportunity will open, and we will jump on the first opportunity we get!
What is done with the dead hogs?
These hogs are desert dwellers, the meat is not worth recovering. We do offer mounts at an additional charge.
Can I bring non-hunters with me?
Yes observers are welcome. The non-hunter daily lodging and meal charges will apply.
What should we bring with us?
Proper clothing, your hunter safety certificate (if you were born on or after Sept. 2, 1971) and your hunting license. If it’s warm you’ll be fine with shorts/jeans and a short sleeved shirt. If it’s cold you’ll want wind-blocking clothing that’s warm. Don’t confuse warm with bulky though, quarters are tight so space is precious. We suggest a hat/beanie, sunglasses for the wind and gloves that allow for weapon operation.
What kind of license do I need?
A Texas hunting license. We will take care of the licensing online, on site. The license fee is $50.00
If you are planning to purchase your license ahead of time, for residents you need the basic hunting license, no endorsements required. For non-residents you can get the special 5-day option which is $50.
