Say what you will about the Nuge, I think we can all agree that the guy brings new meaning to the world overkill. TTAG has covered helicopter hunting before and we’ve definitely got it on our bucket list. Check out the trailer to watch some clips of The Motor City Madman raining death from the sky with a some NFA items.

  1. An entire show dedicated to airborne pig killing? Sounds like the first hunting show worth watching.

  2. pigs are a destructive, non native species. very little should be off limits in dealing with them. i only hope that the meat isn’t wasted. i know that sounds hypocritical from a vegetarian, but i hate to see waste.

    • If you search, many are eaten or given away to food banks or donated to country fairs and churches were it is sold and the money going to some charity.

    • That would be especially helpful for herds of 30-40. We dont have it as bad here in GA as other states do (Florida and Texas come to mind), but they are still a huge problem across the south.

  3. This right here would be the ideal state job. Eradicating pigs. Imagine doing this 3-4 days a week and sometimes 5.

  4. I’ve never hunted these things… But my brother keeps telling me that he knows a group of guys who go down there every year and hunt these things at night with knives and pitbulls! Does anyone know if that’s true?

      • There was a program on TV where an extermination company in Texas hunted with armor wearing dogs and knives. The dogs would hold the pig, and the hunter/exterminator would cut the hog’s throat. Trying to remember what it was called..”HogWars”? It featured hunters in texas, florida and hawaii.

    • The guy in the trailer that isn’t Nugent has a show called “Pigman”. One of the episodes was dedicated to them doing just that. It was crazy to watch especially when you see the video from the GoPro cameras they had mounted on the dog’s harness!

  5. Didn’t look to me as if they were getting a whole lot in the way of ethical, one shot, one kill shooting going on there, and that kind of disturbed me. Woldn’t it be better to use the helicopters like beaters to flush the hogs and send them towards a group of waiting hunters on the ground?

    • This is to hunting as infantry is to sniping. Different means to the same end, one just involves a little more finesse.

  6. Wow looks fun, but I think that the stalk, flush and shoot is a more involved process. Ethical issues aside it still looks fun!

  7. I’m surprised they don’t have to use brass catchers to make sure brass doesn’t get into the delicate bits of the helicopter.

    But that looks like a hell of a lot of fun!

    • Something really needs to be done about the comment system. Click Post Comment, sit there and watch a whirlygig for 30 seconds, then it comes up Service Unavailable. Hit refresh and post data again, and it says the comment was already posted.
      Either the service was unavailable or the comment was posted. What’s happening on the back end is not being reflected accurately on the front end.

    • it looked like there was some sort of net between the shooting stations and the pilots area. all of the important stuff in a chopper is above and behind you except for the pilots controls.

  8. Why not just use a shotgun? I saw a video awhile back and they just used a semi-automatic shotgun with buckshot. Those hogs dropped immediately.

    I guess the full auto rifle is more fun.

    • how about dual aa12’s on swiveling door mounts. now that would be off the hook. there’s no such thing as too much firepower.
