From a Moving Boat
This video from out in the wild internet shows a person blasting away at an entire group of boars with a pistol from a moving boat.
Even with the problem of wild hogs and boars here in the U.S., there are better ways to rid of the them.
This is just crazy on so many levels, starting with the fact that one guy hands his 'buddy' a loaded handgun, and then the shooter unloads on the animals. They all looking like they were on a joy ride than on a hunt.
This video was purportedly taken somewhere in South America. This is one of those video that gives the anti-hunters ammo to fire at us hunters.
I think most hunters would have set up at a likely spot for those boars to come out from the swim then blast away. Read the rest of unethical shooter shoots boars.
Invasive species should be wiped out however they can be. Whether they are swimming the Rio Grande or jumping fences a target is a target.
What garbage! It’s hogs and I’ll kill them any way I can and as many as I can. Many ranches down here hunt them from Helo’s and will take 100 or more a flight. The worst thing that can happen to a ranch or farm is to have hog’s move in. Kill them all!
Just another “Hold m’uh beer” moment. Sad.
Its much more effective to shoot them from helicopters. Very few pigs can fly, you know.
No such thing as a fair fight.
Maybe Mr. (or Miss) Cocoles will one day own a hay field and wake up one morning and find that the hogs have rooted up the whole thing. Have fun mowing with your tractor!
Hogs & coyotes? I’m run over with them on my place. I kill an average of two a week without even trying to hunt them. KIll them where they stand, as long as it’s a safe shot.
You can be pretty sure that Mr or Ms Cooties lives in a city and hates guns.
Maybe they didn’t have a helicopter available. Use what you’ve got.
The only good feral hog is a dead feral hog.
“You can be pretty sure that Mr or Ms Cooties lives in a city and hates guns. can be pretty sure that Mr or Ms Cooties lives in a city and hates guns.”
Killing,butchering,cleaning food as our progenitors did is pretty much a lost art except for hunters and fishermen....and the percentage of us still doing that is fading away.....
ALL the ‘COOTIES’ will be running out to their ‘kuntree Kuzzins’ places out in the countryside when the “lites go out”.....Remember Granny ‘wringing the neck’ of the days chicken dinner?
In Texas we hunt them from a helo with full auto weapons. The are first order pests and a disease vector.
Ditto! Every hog has a demon waiting to come out. I grew up on a farm that raised hogs. Great pets, had lotsa fun with them. But, a little screaming and by chance, blood, you better be watching out!! You can be part of the menu just that quick!
Kettle, meet pot.
Pot. meet kettle.
When you spray cockroaches is that "unethical hunting?" Consider feral hogs to be 150lb cockroaches, but a lot more dangerous and destructive, and then consider the ethics of getting rid of them.
Wild hogs are reportedly in my area but I haven’t encountered any yet. My biggest problem is beavers damning up the creek that backs up over the only bridge to my home. Before I moved over there my late father-in-law killed 65 of these pests with his 1911 and got reported to the game warden by people driving by. They just loved to watch them swim and play in their ever expanding lake and that man just shot them and left them in the water, how cruel! Well yeah, he wasn’t about to wade out and pull their carcasses out for a cemetery burial. The game warden told him, I understand your problem, keep shooting, just be discreet.
He passed away and I moved to the property and went to war with them and took out 27 in one year and I shot and left them to float on down stream. I finally found an agriculture agent who said he would love to trap them. I said fly to it. After his first venture out he called and said I took a 75 lb beaver in one trap with a head full of what looked to be number 4 shot. I said yes, I only had my .20 gauge that day and I thought it had got him, guess not. These are destructive nuisance animals, if these animal lovers want them come get them and take them to your house, have at it, bit if they stay on my property, they are going to be sent to a better place!
