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.

Thats a good thing! Keep the ducks stired up from sitting :thumbsup:

If thats true and you see it flying over then just shoot the thing.

Nobody is going to spend that much money on a drone and gopro to have it lost or shot. :sniper:

What SA were you at?

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:
