"Every day Matt, I look in the mirror and I go 'why you wild-eyed son of a bitch, everything you do is illegal in France.'"
Nugent told Matt Patrick on the 950 he uses a machine gun from a helicopter to thin the destructive herd.
"We donate the meat -- this pure, natural pork -- to the homeless shelters and the soup kitchens around Texas, literally bringing the ultimate protein to people who genuinely need it. So everything I do is win, win, win. The only problem with my helicopter hunting is I can barely fit my head in because of the halo."
Nugent is amused by his critics' reaction.
"Everything about it is absolutely, undeniably beneficial, all around beneficial for the environment, beneficial for private property, beneficial for wildlife, creating jobs and literally feeding the hungry people. But the left wants to ban it and they hate me for doing it. Am I beautiful or what?
The effort is featured on a reality TV show called "Aporkalypse Now" on the Sportsman Channel.
