​​​​Providing Opportunities for Veterans

​& The Protection of Texas Agriculture

​​​​​​​OPERATION DUSTOFF was conceived as a platform to support our veterans and provide a much needed service to landowners in Texas. We give back to our heroes by reviving their former military skills and making them a part of our community and team. Veterans training veterans in aerial gunnery techniques using a rotary wing platform which allows them to assist our teams in the control of the feral hog problem that faces our agricultural balance here in Texas.

Our MISSION is two-fold: 

  • Providing opportunities to soldiers experiencing difficulties reintegrating back into civilian life.
  • Benefiting Texas landowners and Agricultural Centers affected by the destruction of feral hogs.

OPERATION DUSTOFF proudly serves as a premier aerial support unit to utilize veterans in providing our services to all Texas counties in hog eradication. Our precision shooters are selected from our events held throughout the year, as well as from our Aerial Operations Safety & Aerial Marksmanship Training Course offered to veterans and civilians at our facility in Fentress, TX.

Our instructor cadre has over 30-years of combined military operational experience. Our shooters will be trained in target recognition and aerial marksmanship, allowing them to engage feral hogs with precision and accuracy, drastically reducing the feral hog population and their destruction.
