    My cousinís aerial coyote hunting setup

    So. Jealous.

    Benelli Super Black Eagle. We have the II and the III. Main difference is III has bigger trigger guard and bolt, so easier to operate with gloves. Has to be left hand eject and has to be inertia driven and extension helps too! Gas driven ones foul after about two shots with wind blowing up barrel and has to be left hand eject, so that the empties go out of plane and not bouncing off the side of my head 4 buck is best when we can get it. But 3 inch double aught works pretty good too

    In the last Gunsite shotgun class I taught, this March, I had a pilot who flies, on gov't contracts, paid depredators. Using a fixed-wing, like the one shown, the shooter is working out of a door/opening on the left rear and using a left hand eject Benelli semi-auto.

    He described the process in detail & then completely crushed my spirit by letting me know he could not take me up on a flight for that. Damnit.

    Yeah, I think I'd enjoy that.

    Dare I ask what part of the country your cousin flies?

    Erick,

    At a Safari Club convention years ago I think I remember someone saying there are outfitters in Texas that provide this service.

    Oversimplification is a very efficient way to make yourself stupid.

    The helo hog hunts are well into 4 digits to the left of the decimal an hour. I recall the fixed-wing time was much, much less.

    I'll be in WY fairly soon. Looking forward to seeing what it's like.

    Yes, but pay attention to the type of bird. I've seen on other forums that these hunts commonly use a relatively inexpensive type of civilian-operated helicopter that's prone to crashing.

    I'm inclined to avoid anything that could be described by the term "inexpensive civilian-operated helicopter."

    Helicopters do not glide to the ground when the engines stop
