    I think it should be illegal for drones to fly ABOVE 100' 0ver the ground....then I could practice my lead with my shotgun, getting ready for goose season!

    The old Kicks Hi flier choke, with some heavy shot #2's would do a serious number on a drone!
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    So I wonder how it will affect the TV shows that use drones to film their hunting shows? Most of the "fly over shots" are filmed with drones. It's not hunting but who is to say while they where filming part of the show they were or were not scouting. Sounds like the gray area.
    I don't Break the rules, I Modify them.

    With the technology improvements in drones and miniaturization of High Def cameras, this is just the tip of the iceberg.

    At first you had me scratching my head, and then I figured it out from the other thread! You aren't a long range hunter/shooter are you, LOL?!

    If they are not already illegal in all states, they should be when used for a hunting or scouting tool. It kind of takes away the fair chase of it all.

    Iíve seen some awesome videography though using them. One of the guys I follow for fly fishing, Todd Moen with Catch Magazine uses one of those Quadrocopter for his films now and it does add some creative pop to his films seeing the angles and such from the air. Pretty cool technology but Iím not sure Iím wanting to see them flying around the mountains while Iím hunting. There are just better ways out there to hunt and explore new places.

    I work in high tech and enjoy all types of technology. I think they would be fun to play with, just like setting out trail cameras or a plot watcher. Wouldn't it be great to not have to climb that mountain to only see nothing? That said, I really don't want them being legal for scouting. There's a point where it's not hunting any more.

    I agree, I think they would be fun to try out. But I don't truly think a drone will produce that great of images and have that great of video. Now maybe I am wrong cause I have not used one or seen what kind of images they can produce, but depending on size and weight are there going to be that many that get packed into the field to get used a few miles back?
