    How is it that firing a gun at a hog will cause the rest to run and disburse,yet to shoot out of a helicopter does not???? Sounds like total B.S. and just creating job security to me!

    If the knuckleheads wouldn’t have decided to ban hunting on government ground the hog population wouldn’t have exploded to such a degree. It was claimed hunting the hogs lead to dispersion. B.S. The animals are nomadic. They may leave an area for weeks, months or longer before going back to the previous land. More bad decisions by the government.
