    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.
    Throwing rocks? How is a drone like a projectile?
    The only thing that is clear is that unless there is something illegal going on, hunters have no reason to fear being taped and private citizens are within their rights to videotape the outdoors as much as hunters are free to hunt in it. So get used to it.

    I think you are absolutely correct. Of course, I would assume PETA would always obtain necessary permits to operate their drones if and when required. If not, well, I'm sure private citizens will be more than happy to take every action within their rights to make sure the violations are brought to the attention of authorities and proper legal actions are followed through with.

    Now one thing they probably need to consider. The almost certain loss of their Drones on likely every mission might put a crimp in thier strategy, and their budget.

    I understand drones can be tricky to pilot.

    Unlike war drones subject to actually being shot down even at altitude, it would take little altitude for a blimp drone to be both unseen and out of the reach of firearms. Bullets don't go far straight up. Therefore, speed of travel would be irrelevant. The main purpose of the motor would be to just keep it where it's at.
    Shhh! Don't tell PETA.

We had 10 shooters-five would shoot 25 targets than the other 5-one member of the non shooting squad would pull the targets and referee. since I was a licensed referee I was pulling for the second squad when the drone started buzzing the field. The top shooter-then the world record holder, looked at me and said, I have a malfunction, I need to "test fire" my gun. I said sure, he went to his car, got some 3.5 dram magnum goose loads and up another shotgun he had in his car. Over comes the plane-boom-half the tail is shot off (this guy was a really good shot-most guys couldn't manage the pattern that well)

    last the diptard pulled that crap.

    PETA drones might require more direct hits though

    yeah harassing people who aren't far lefties is ok with the "tolerant left". I wonder if you feel the same way if bible thumpers taped women going into abortion clinics or men going into gay bars?

    I'd shoot them down anyway. What are they going to do about it?

    They'd be more successful harassing anglers. They hate catch and release fly anglers like me, and bass anglers as well, as we "torture" the poor fish for fun. Anglers usually aren't armed, or if they are, it's likely to be with a handgun. It would be hard to shoot down a drone with a handgun, after all.

    But, I hope they don't. It would be a major pain to have to start toting a shotgun on the trout stream.

    What are they charging for pictures, and can I also get a copy of the video? Do you have their contact information? I would like to schedule a shoot.

    Is there an extra fee for having the drone fly my kill back to the truck?
