Efficient Wildlife Surveying & Captures

Monitor the wildlife living on your property and know exactly what types are on it with wildlife surveying from SMITH HELICOPTERS INC. From deer to hogs, we accurately document the animals on your land. Ranchers in Cotulla and throughout South Texas also depend on us for timesaving helicopter wildlife capture services.

Monitor Deer Populations

We can fly over multiple areas, allowing researchers to run a census for deer populations in the area. By giving you a bird's eye view, you can monitor the buck-to-doe ratio and percentage of fawn survival to get an accurate picture for your property.

Get Ready for Survey Season

Conduct the ecological surveys and species counts you need with air service from our company. Aerial surveys are available from August to the end of November, or mid-January to mid-March, depending on the distance and area being monitored. In addition to deer, we'll check head counts for hogs and coyotes, so you can have an accurate predator count.

You can rely on our aerial surveys to deliver the accurate results you need. Using state-of-the-art equipment, we provide you with a precise count of each species at your location. Our ability to fly over multiple areas of your land expands the scope of your monitoring process.
