As 2012 winds down, it’s a great opportunity to reflect on the year that was: the hunts we went on, the lessons we learned, the animals we killed (or missed), the times we shared with others and the stories that captured our attention as a hunting community. And when you really think about it, we saw quite a lot.
There was the bizarre, like the Brazilian fisherman who choked to death on a fish. There was the controversial, like the Wisconsin hound dog that got mauled by wolves, the battle in Minnesota to stop a wolf hunt from taking place or the creation of a PETA porn website. And then there was the always comical Jase Robertson from Ducky Dynasty, who sat down with Eric Conn to talk about life as a bearded (and humbly famous) duckman.
Like any year, 2012 had its fair share of newsworthy happenings. To honor and celebrate the year that was, we at Game & Fish have decided to countdown our favorites.
<h2>No. 12: Hog Hunting Takes to the Skies </h2>Ted Nugent, hog annihilation and helicopters. Need we say more?<a href="http://www.gameandfishmag.com/2012/08/22/ted-nugent-hog-hunting/" target="_blank"> Nugent teamed up with the Pigman</a> this year on the Sportsman Channel to bring the world helio-hog hunting with fully automatic weapons. Spoiler alert: the pigs died, the Nuge went wild and everybody went home happy.
