Any idea on the $$$?
Sometime back, we checked into helihunting and could not find a deal for less than $500 per hour, 1 hour minimum, but everyone was willing to break it into 2 half hour sorties. The operation above is in a bigger helicopter and undoubtedly would cost a good bit more per hour, never mind the increase in fuel costs, LOL.

Vertex, minimum of $350 per person, $600 per hour, 3 hour minimum, and they supply guns, ammo, training, and copter, and flight.

Heli Hunters charges....
$1,000.00/hr for one hunter
$1,500.00/hr for two shooters*

$200 minimum for overnight stay for party of 4 (food and drink provided)
$50.00 per additional person
Can accomodate up to 10 people

I am opposed to using helicopters to hunt game,
I think it sets a terrible precedent and is incompatible with
hunting ethics.
Technically and legally, it is pest eradication, not hunting (regardless of how it is billed). As an environmentalist Texas landowner, I am opposed to letting feral hogs roam free and destroy the habitat for native species and destroy native species.
