Christian Berg: Stuck In The Rut Crossbows Hog

Strange Brew: Helicopter Hog Hunting With A Crossbow

by Christian Berg   |  February 28th, 2012 15

I realize the whole topic of crossbows and crossbow hunting can be a bit controversial among Petersen’s BOWHUNTING readers. However, I’m not here today to engage in a crossbow debate. I just want to share this video, courtesy of Wildgame Nation, of a recent feral hog hunt conducted from a helicopter using a Barnett crossbow.

This event was billed as the “first-ever helicopter hog hunt with a crossbow.” I’m not sure if there’s any way to verify that, but it’s almost certainly the first time anyone did it with a video camera and posted the results on the Internet!

As you can see for yourself in the video, the crossbow was certainly an effective killing tool. Quite frankly, I’m not sure how to react to this footage. is it cool? Crazy? Over the top? One thing you can’t deny is that it’s interesting viewing. I’d be interested in your take on this. So, give it a look and chime in.
