Default recommendations for heli hog hunt

Buddy and I are trying to line up a helicopter hog hunt for late March. We can go pretty much anywhere in TX for a good hunt. I assume S TX is somewhat tougher to get on them because of the thick brush. Have any of you been recently and do you have recommendations? thanks!

My nephew flew a private ranch around the Freer area and loved it. I don't think the brush is so thick once you get up in the air!

I have heard good things about cedar ridge aviation. I have done it once. Got envited to do it near goliad. Almost 300 pigs in 2 days. It was there second year to do it. The year before they killed more.

Heli-Hunter is a company I have seen used. Not sure about locations though if you want to go on your own

I watched Aporkalypse with Ted Nugent and the Pig Man. They flew with heli-hunter and highly recommended them. That's an option but they're pretty expensive but maybe they all are.

Heli-Hunter flew over my neighbor's ranch a couple of weekends ago and they killed 2-300 pigs on Saturday. I don't think I'd have the ammo to afford that hunt!

Just looked at their website. $2500 per hour for up to 2 people. Booked through 2015 (they only hunt when trees dont have leaves)

If the chopper idea doesnt pan out.. I can drive you around, strapped to a high lift, at 90 mph in s.tx for $500 hr.. even supply lunch (Wendy's or McD's).

Good idea on searching out Texas Hunters Forum for hunts. Any other suggestions on where to look?
