Texans may be able to hunt feral hogs from a hot air balloon.

In one of the more interesting pieces of legislation introduced recently, a bill has been introduced that would make hunting feral hogs from a hot air balloon legal.

House Bill 3392 would allow for a landowner, or someone with the landowner’s permission, to use a hot air balloon for hog hunting. Permits could start being issued as soon as September 1st of this year.

Good idea or bad ? and why ?

The hunting of the hog's takes place on large sections of land. All the hunts seen so far, no one is around excepting the group of hunters. IF they load the basket with too many people, yeah, could see someone being dumb and firing a weapon by mistake , shooting another hunter.
