Helicopter Hog Hunting

WHAT TO EXPECT

Helicopter Hog Hunting

Texas helicopter hog hunting has soared in popularity over the past few years. Spread Oaks Ranch can help you arrange this exhilarating aerial sport through expert licensed pilot and independent contractor Ryan Ashcroft.

You’ll take-off right in front of the lodge, with flights that are made two persons at a time. Ryan provides your AR rifles, shotguns, and ammunition. A safety briefing and overview of the hunt is made before take-off. Ryan will book hunts for as short a duration as an hour to as long as a day. The choices guests need to communicate are: 1) the number of hours they want to book, 2) the number of total people shooting, 3) start time, and billing information.

Costs: The cost for helicopter hunting is $2,700 per hour (2 hour minimum) and includes weapons, ammunition, and hearing protection. As an independent vendor, you must pay Ryan directly and he will bring an invoice with him.
