    Those are property owners watching their own property, from their own property.

    If property owners are ok with what they do on their land, then power to them. But if they are on their own, then they just vigilantes.

    FAA regulations for remotely operated hobbyist aircraft is 400ft max altitude and away from congested areas. Flying your drone over the neighbors property is frowned upon by the FAA. The 500' rule would apply to manned aircraft for minimum altitude as I understand the rules.

    I was referring to the floor(500ft) of aircraft, but I'm not sure if traditional drones, which are much larger than a hobby plane, would be subject to that rule.

    Commercial drones, IE drones other than hobbyist aircraft must have a permit and waiver, and currently sponsorship from a public entity. The exception would be US government drones.

    Poppycock. Coyotes are a huge nusance and have invaded the middle of cities. A coyote goes through my backyard every night. Same with smaller predators like raccoons and opposums. The only large predator not common now is the wolf and they were never very plentiful.

    How many people hunt on their own property? That is not what I was talking about.

    Well, the rich will be able to afford the nicest drones. Game on.

    Not all hunt on their own property, but most hunt on private property.

    More than you would think. Either on land owned or leased. True there is as good deal of hunting on public land, and if a condition of licensing is acknowledgement that you do not shoot down drones, then so be it. But that is a contractural obligation, not a trespassing issue.

    I've hunted over 60 years in several states and in Germany. At least 95% of my hunting was on private land.

    Most states have laws prohibiting harassment of hunters or wildlife. PETA's drones would be breaking both laws.
