Shotgun vs drone low enough to bother me while hunting = scraps to pick up on the way out of the field.

Blow off a couple of those rotors and it should come down soft enough to salvage the camera.

Wonder if it records for later playback, or if the video is sent real-time?

I didn't know there was a state that didn't have a anti-harassing law.

drones are expensive, shotgun shells are cheap and effective

Shoot the drone down?

Let's see how that goes for ya when the drone belongs to the game warden that's looking for hunters.

A lot are apparently being used by PETA to harass legal hunters.

I don't know how you would tell the difference from a distance though.

I would want to shoot a drone down if it were harassing me in the field but if it's sending video in real time I wonder if you would get arrested for shooting it down. Technically it's not trespassing on your property if it's in the air. Even if there are laws against harassment there are laws against destroying private property also.

There is at least one video on YouTube of a harassing drone being shot out of the sky.

You got a game warden that uses a drone?

How far out can a civilian drone get signal? The controller can't be too far away. Shoot it down and drench it in deer urine or something.

We need some FAA regulations for drone operations pretty quick. The reason why the anti-hunters couldn't just buzz us all in a small people-carrying helicopter in the past, is because of FAA regulations about flying close to things & people on the ground, (for safety reasons).

With drones having no human pilot within eyesight, the safety issue in case of things like an engine failure, are even more serious. Drones have no brain with which to make decent emergency landing decisions compared to human pilots. For this reason we MUST have some air regulations enacted to specify how close you can let your drone get to people on the ground, just like we already do for human-piloted aircraft, which are not nearly so dangerous to operate near other people. Drones, because of the inherent danger of having an unbridled robot on the loose, should be required to stay at least 500 feet from all "people, vehicles, and structures" (or however the exact FAR wording is) just like other aircraft generally have to now.

Buzzing low over people should be the sort of thing that gets you arrested & jailed, and I think it eventually will be (it has to be) once congress finally gets off it's ass and makes some safety regulations happen. It's stupid to think that drones should be exempt forever from the same safety rules that apply to manned aircraft that do not pose as much potential danger as a brainless drone can.

If there are no signs indicating drones are used for catching poachers, then I will down one if I see it while hunting.

So, now they are stooping so low as to intentionally being annoying? Wow, that's pretty hardcore. Next they're going to be using harsh language.
