House Approves Aerial Hog Hunting Bill

House Approves Aerial Hog Hunting Bill
Legislation that would allow aerial hunting of feral hogs has been approved by the Oklahoma House of Representatives.


House Bill 1920, by state Rep. Dustin Roberts, would allow a permit for any landowner or any person who has contracted with a landowner to engage in the management of depredating animals by use of aircraft on the land of the landowner.


"Feral hogs are a huge problem in Oklahoma," said Roberts, R-Durant. "Aerial hunting of feral hogs is an efficient and effective way to manage the feral hog population and my legislation creates a process to allow it."


Numerous rural residents have asked for help in addressing feral hogs, Roberts said.


House Bill 1920 was approved by a 88-4 vote and now advances to the state Senate.
