    I see nothing wrong with using new technology to enforce conservation laws.

    Oh and ignoring laws you don't like is not "proclaimed by our constitution OR granted us by God".
    So in spite of the claim PETA has made, your conclusion is any objection to their plans amounts to trying to maintain illegal hunting activity.

    My guess is you can't imagine why so many find liberal thinking so vacant of logic.

    What are these hunters hiding from anyway?
    A drone flying overhead in a State preserve or national park is wrong but shooting animals illegally is ok?
    Why do hunters get special treatment? The answer is they don't and they don't own the air over a State park either.

    Is PETA the State?

    Should PETA be looking into the windows of your home to see if you are abusing your pets? What do you have to hide?

    Perhaps you can show where PETA has mentioned they would only stalk illegal hunting.

    Perhaps you can explain why legal hunters would worry about being watched?

    PETA stated that they would monitor hunting areas and tape and report any illegal activity. So now answer mine. What are legal hunters hiding from?

    Please show where PETA is an arm of the state, given power, via the FAA, to enforce said laws. If not, then they are no different than a peeping tom.

    Why do you presume that they are hiding from anything, as if the concern wasn't that the noise of the drones would scare off their prey?

    IKR a hunter wants to spend the day getting away from tech and civilization and into nature to get into the primal nature of the hunt, only to be constantly following by a buzzing camera that scares away any chance of game.

    That is not what they said. According the news article link accompanying this thread they claim the following.

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is actively shopping for a drone that would "stalk hunters," the organization said Monday.

    The group says it will "soon have some impressive new weapons at its disposal to combat those who gun down deer and doves" and that it is "shopping for one or more drone aircraft with which to monitor those who are out in the woods with death on their minds."

    The group says it will not weaponize the drones, but will use them to film potentially illegal hunting activity and turn it over to law enforcement.


    The operative word is "potentially" illegal hunting.

    "Potentially"? So after buzzing around with a drone, chasing off whatever game might be in the area, and determining all is well, they plan to move on? Yea right.

    Don't put words on this thread that are blatently false.

    When their statement includes the following: "out in the woods with death on their minds", it's quite clear what they are looking to do.

    As to your question, I think the answer is obvious. Why don't you go throw rocks in the water around a bunch of people fishing and tally their response.
