    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.
    I always carry a pistol when I fish. usually a 22 to whack herons or other birds raiding the trout streams at the club

    when I used to fish in remote areas I always packed as well

    drones are a good reason for full automatics though

    I'd think a GE Minigun on an AA mount would be ideal

    You have to prove I destroyed it.

    You will certainly be able to prove that it was shot down, but you will have to prove that I did it.

    Lots of hunters in the aria...lots of reasonable doubt....

    I can see future news stories of peta-tards filing lawsuits against hunters for shooting down their toys.

    It takes a certain skill to shoot down an object that is flying in the air. But if you are a geese or duck hunter and with the proper lead.... The drones won't land on any pond or lake and a dog will do you no good. But I read about a new type of shotgun pellet that could go through the drones, I wish I had paid more attention to it.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    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.
    I can't wait for a blimp to be hacked and 'recovered' by an anti-PETA.

    I am sure harassment and trespassing is also a crime.And how do you prove that the hunter didn't mistake it for a bird?
