I took my first flight in a helicopter when I was just twelve years old, and I was hooked from there on. I have spent my life growing up in northern Idaho riding horses with my mom, and working on cars with my dad. I have always been quite an adrenaline seeker so the idea of flying just came natural to me. After many years of hard work running two businesses and going to flight school I finally made it into the professional world of Aviation. It hasn’t been an easy road, but there is nothing more rewarding to me ythan learning new jobs, and traveling the countryside doing so. I have a wide range of experience from Florida beach tours to bush flying in Canada, and I have flown ten different airframes so far. I feel that my passion is definitely in the utility side of things. Most recently I have been a second in command pilot in a UH-60 Blackhawk for power line construction and fighting fires in the Northwest. I love the technical out of the box style of flying and I can’t wait to get out there on the next adventure and chase some hogs!
For your convenience, we have compiled a list of our most frequently asked questions collected regarding our hunts. If you have any specific questions, please don’t hesitate to call:
Wild hogs are considered an invasive species by Federal and state governments, and have been found to be too difficult for to manage even when using game wardens and helicopters. In 2021, there were an estimated 2.6 million hogs in Texas and an annual growth rate of 20% due to litter size, and short gestational periods. For this reason, the state of Texas has turned to the state’s many hunters for help, and businesses such as SkyHunter Outfitters have taken up the challenge to both help the state control this invasive species, and give hunters the unique experience of participating in the population control from the unusual platform of a helicopter. Helicopters are useful in that they give an arial view of a field, they are maneuverable, and hogs inherently run from them.
