OKEECHOBEE, Fla. -- The helicopter hovered low over a thicket of cabbage palms, its rotor whop-whop-whopping, rattling the fronds and flattening the grass as two men sitting in the passenger seats fore and aft pointed shotguns out the open side.

Suddenly, a wild hog darted out of the brush and began to run across the pasture. One of the hunters aimed and pulled the trigger, knocking the animal down with a load of buckshot. The chopper rose and continued west across the 5,000-acre ranch, seeking more targets.
