peta drones

Postby Privileged hunter » Thu Aug 14, 2014 4:56 pm

Went to sports athourity today And bought My hunting license And i heard a guy talking about the gopro camera. So the salesman asked him what are you going to use it for. He said hes going to put it on a phantom drone And fly it with the Birds And the saleman chuckled but he didnt . So i couldnt help Myself but ask him more. To make a Long story short he saw me with two boxes of shells And said. To save the ducks from people like you. :eek: so we had a few words of exchange And i had to get the hell out of there because i didnt want to go to jail. His last words were dont expect a good duck season. Take how you want it but its the truth.

He said he was flying it with the birds. Shoot it...all you were doing was shooting at a duck in the flock. Not your fault you hit the drone.

Are PETA drones considered an invasive species? Open year round with no bag limit? :yes:

Actually what he intends to do is against the law. It is unlawful to harrass a hunter or wildlife for that matter. Since his intent is to scare the birds/ducks away from hunters he's violating two laws. Call the warden then shoot it down. :thumbsup:

Tell him to fly it at the refuges where the birds all sit in the closed zones. Stir them up and they fly into the hunt area so we can kill more. That's pretty smart of him to help us hunters out like that.

I have four basic hunting rules that I follow. Rule number one: You shoot it, you eat it.

That has always applied to animals. I wounder if I would be violating rule #1 if I shot a drone :huh:

Would it be weird to mount next to my other birds? And are they going to put it on the cards? I wonder how cool they would feel if they clipped a bird wrecked their drone and started a fire? People just get stupider with time

Also just read up on their drones. They're called "air angels" and are being sold for 325 by PETA and stated that shooting them is illegal calling it destruction of property. I say do it anyways then flip the script as invasion of privacy, animal harassment, unauthorized motor vehicle in wildlife area. Might even be able to get some great hunting photos off of it.

offer a bounty and require a valid hunting license and "drone tag" in order to collect bounty. CWA or other organization could sell the tags as fund raisers and have harvest rules on peta drones. They are trying it in a small Colorado town.

With a range of 55 yards...PETA's statement is blowing smoke up the judicial arse...

“If these drones are used as intended and as advertised by PETA, neither the wildlife nor the hunters will be disturbed,” Goodman said. “It’s simply to capture illegal activity.”

...and so, with a range of 55 yards, how close will the operator be to me when that drone is crumpled into bits and pieces?

Harassment-close for sure Rick...but perhaps worse?

Seems to me PETA is marketing (profiting from?) a gadget that by virtue of its design
REQUIRES an operator to be within range of its mission target.
So, if an operator wants to chase away birds from my shotgun range (or film me shooting birds)
Then by design that operator will be unsafely downrange of me discharging my firearm

I'm guessing PETA is setting itself up for a lawsuit...or two :fingerhead:

That is a fantastic story. I wonder what store this is that sells Go Pros and hunting licenses at the same counter.

I digress.

While the story itself is incredible, interfering with hunting is actually illegal in California.

http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/displ ... 000-2021.5
2009. (a) A person shall not willfully interfere with the
participation of any individual in the lawful activity of shooting,
hunting, fishing, falconry, hunting dog field trials, hunting dog
training, or trapping at the location where that activity is taking
place.
(b) A violation of this section is punishable pursuant to
subdivision (b) of Section 12000.
(c) Any person convicted for a violation of this section that
occurred within two years of a prior violation of this section which
resulted in a conviction is guilty of a misdemeanor, punishable by
imprisonment in the county jail for a period of not more than one
year, by a fine of not less than one hundred dollars ($100) and not
to exceed one thousand dollars ($1,000), or by both imprisonment and
fine.
(d) This section does not apply to the actions of any peace
officer or personnel of the department in the performance of their
official duties. This section does not obstruct the rights and normal
activities of landowners or tenants, including, but not limited to,
farming, ranching, and limiting unlawful trespass.
(e) In order to be liable for a violation of this section, the
person is required to have had the specific intent to interfere with
the participation of an individual who was engaged in lawful
shooting, hunting, fishing, falconry, hunting dog field trials,
hunting dog training, or trapping.
(f) For purposes of this section, "interfere with" means any
action which physically impedes, hinders, or obstructs the lawful
pursuit of any of the above-mentioned activities, including, but not
limited to, all of the following:
(1) Actions taken for the purpose of frightening away animals from
the location where the lawful activity is taking place.

(2) Placing or maintaining signs, gates, locks, or barricades that
prohibit or deny access to lands without authorization from the
landowner or lessee or an authorized designee of the landowner or
lessee.
(3) Placing food on lands not belonging to the person placing the
food for purposes of eliminating the lawful ability to hunt due to
the presence of bait, as defined in this code or regulations adopted
pursuant to this code.



So while the fantasies of shooting someone's toy out of the sky run rampant, I doubt it will ever actually happen.

The FAA has not yet authorized drones for commercial use. Wonder if an organization such as PETA using a drone for the purpose they claim would break any FAA regulations....

You should have told him you were going to have a fantastic season, and he was going to have an expensive bird watching season buying new drones and gopro's lol
