Aren't helicopters required to have tail numbers like fixed wing aircraft? Was anyone able to get a pic with of/with the numbers or at least write them down?

how much acreage is this? I don't think a pilot would make this type of error. fencelines are incredibly easy to see from the air.

Our place is 600ac..the place to our west which did have landowner approval is only 100ac. We do have our suspicions on who gave the pilot the ok but landowner doesnít want to jump the gun and question him until it is confirmed

I don't know if this is the state or not, but I can guarantee you the landowner did not give permission to do this while you where on the ranch. We have the state guys fly over and shoot coyotes, but the first thing they ask is anyone going to be on the ranch. They will not fly or shoot out of a helicopter if anyone is on the ranch period. I would definitely get with the landowner and ask.

It was the state trapper, verified already by the GW..some of the guys hunting out here are DPS troopers. Our Land owner did not ok this and wouldn’t have regardless if there were hunters on it or not..he’s a lawyer, there’s to much liability. With as long as the GW is taking to investigate this tells me there may have been some shady crap going on...

So you would be just just a little irritated if you were in a tree 30yds or less from a feeder and a helicopter comes and buzzes your feeder and starts unloading on pigs?....

Wouldn't be ok with it but it is not as dangerous as you would think. Buckshot is very soft and flattens on impact. It is not right to do and I would be highly irritated.

If I was shot at 30 yards with buckshot, I promise you Grimmace would be permanently deflated

Government trapper. Why would they be paying someone to do it when the guys that take hunters are looking for places to do it for free. Something stinks.

I am not sure I would call it shady. They want to make sure they get it right.


I am curious who gave this guy permission as I highly doubt he did it illegally during daylight on a property he can't hunt. Unless he got boundaries wrong...but he does this for a living

In for outcome. I would be livid if I saw a helicopter even fly low over our place without permission much less shooting out of it. I can guarantee that my BIL would never give anybody permission to do this. I would pursue any and all charges that are possible to the full extent of the law.
