Annual veterans hog hunt flies through Knox Co.

Local News

The annual Big Country Veterans Heli Hog Hunt for wounded and active duty veterans got underway Friday at the Circle Bar Ranch in Knox County.

The veterans get to hunt wild hogs from helicopters with funds paid by sponsors organized by the Semper Gratus organization.

It’s been held in that area for the last four years with vets coming from all over the nation to have a weekend of free hunting, food, music and sharing experiences with other vets.

The first choppers took off Friday morning and more flights take off Saturday.
