    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.

    Oh the irony of drones being used against gun lovers! It is sweet.

    However, most or at least some hunters aren't typical boomsticklovers, so I think PETA is going overboard on this one.

    They should fly a drone over NRA CEO La Pierre's home. That would be justified.

    All kidding aside...I don't see any irony here. Lots of lulz on both sides, many jokes to be had, but where's irony? Have hunters used drones on PETA or something?

    I'm also curious....how is PETA going to use the drones for harassment? Let's say PETA fires up a drone, flys around for a bit, finds a hunter, ????, profit.

    Cool. But they may find that they are the ones being hunted.

    BTW, which PETA, the animal rights nut-jubs or is it the People Eating Tasty Animals? Hunting with a drone does seem just a bit unsporting, but hey, meat is meat.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    And PETA wants to stalk, and harass legal hunters with drones....These people are just plain nuts. I'd shoot it down.
    I wonder how well they'd stand up to a couple shells' worth of 12 Gauge bird shot...

    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.
    Ahhh, the ol' "If you're not doing anything wrong, you have nothing to fear" argument. That's how we got the Patriot Act. Pretty much, when you're reduced to that answer you know that what you want to do is very shady at the least.

    Thanks for contributing to the problem.

    PETA is radical but PETA is also smart, their moves are calculated. Someone is going to start shooting at PETA drones, that's inevitable and PETA knows it. You have to consider why PETA wants their drone to be shot at. Clearly it's a bait move so as to make propaganda.

    This doesn't mean you should avoid hunting PETA drones, it means you need to take steps not to get in trouble. Just like you don't want a mountain lion or a grizzly to make you their dinner, don't let that drone put you on every PETA pamphlet and news outlet. Don't just fire on a drone because you're being harassed, you need to become a drone stalker. You're hunting new game now. You need to learn it's habits, it's territories, you need to learn how to camouflage yourself against it, you need to learn how it communicates, you need to brainstorm strategy with other hunters of the same game.

    Under any circumstances, don't ever fire your gun in anger. If you are going to hunt drones, it has to be a sport, not an act of vengeance.

    Do you even use a gun at all to down a drone? Can you disrupt it's signal? Can you override it? Can you trick it into crashing? Can you use an EMP device to knock it out? Typically the low-teck methods are the best...why go after the drone if you can cause the power to go out from it's control station temporarily, long enough for the drone to fly into a tree?

    And should you succeed in downing a drone, it's not over. Someone's gona come looking for that drone. An investigation is going to take place. What did the drone record? What kind of damage did you cause to the drone? If you used a gun, is there anything about the ballistics unique to you: did you shoot it with a .50cal and you're the only .50cal owner in the county? Are your finger prints on a spent casing you didn't pick up? Did you use a signal to hack the control and that signal had some kind of digital signature which could be tracked back to unique parts perchesed by credit card in the county?

    If you're going to become a drone stalker, you need to think it through It's not as easy as sitting in your tree-hide and just shoot it down and forget it. That's exactly what PETA wants you to do.

    Re: PETA Plans to Fly Drones That Would 'Stalk Hunters'

    I would personally proffer to get some kind of after-market jammer, like the portable Warlock, and place myself such that I could jam a passing drone and cause it to crash.

    Even if the drone were watching me, it would not see me do anything incriminating because a small jammer fits in the pocket and activates with the flip of a switch.

    That said I would still have to be smart because using that kind of jammer violates many FCC regulations and the Fed would want to know wtf is going on. That's when the hunter becomes the hunted as the Fed sets up a trap to see who's hunting PETA drones.

    Since many hunters are NRA types who think their right to own dangerous weapons is sacrosanct, in fact there is some poetic justice in PETA using a military device to make their lives miserable.

    But like I say, there's plenty of decent ethical people who hunt, so I think this stunt is misplaced. I wouldn't mind a drone perminenly circling La Pierre's home, however.

    EM weapons essentially....interesting. I support your right to keep and bear such weapons; particularly in the face of an every increasingly technologically advanced big brother government.
