    That is funny, how could they even think it's a good idea...those are pretty slow and prolly fairly easy to shoot down.

    I dunno, do you need a special stamp for those? I mean, I'm all up for shooting them, just not sure about the license requirements...

    Oh, maybe they are in the act of predation....

    There's a lottery in washington for a drone tag. Only a few GMUs are totally open to drone hunting during modern firearm season...

    I'd try using a green laser to burn out the CCD on the camera. Might be a little tough to get it on target though.

    I was wondering about the best way to mount one too. It would truly be a trophy.

    Its a felony in Oregon to interfear with a legal hunt.

    And with 160,000+ deer hunters in the State which 1/2 dozen are they going to monitor. What a bunch of marroons.

    The drone has the capability to carry a DSLR for up to 5 min, or smaller cameras for up to 20 min.... that's more "hang time" than a clay pigeon and a much larger target. In most states I believe it is illegal to interfere with a hunter who is in the act of legally taking game so I guess the operator could get jail time since the thing would most likely scare off game. They say they are planing to target bow hunters and big horn sheep hunts as they are "excessively cruel", along with deer and dove hunts... I would love to see them try this for dove season - any hunter would get free beers at the local bar for a month after shooting down that thing!

    That looks like it will be a nice trophy on my wall. I'm serious. If they ever fly that over me (and I can do so in a safe manner), it will be shot down.

    I thought PETA stood for "People Eating Tastey Animals"!

    From the article: "The group may want to carefully monitor its drone—last year, an animal rights group drone was shot down while it was attempting to monitor pigeon hunters in South Carolina."

    All I can say is BA HAHAHAHAHAHA! :laugh:

    Man, I probably already missed the cut off date - again. Guess it's poaching and hope I don't get caught....
