HUNTING — I'm sure some hunters will be outraged that wildlife managers are taking a hard look at the trend of hunters using drones to find game. But really?
Drones are one of the fastest growing tech products on the market. The technology offers a significant advantage for hunters, says a report in CBS Denver.
Drones allow hunters to get up close to their target without having to spend hours and miles tracking them.
“We think it gives the hunter an unfair advantage,” said Backcountry Hunters & Anglers spokesman Tim Brass.
Backcountry Hunters & Anglers has proposed new bans on drones to game managers across the West.
“As the technology progresses you’re ow able to locate animals without having to walk and work for them. That effort and skill makes hunting what it is,” said Brass.
What do you think?
After all, Illinois passed a law that prevents groups like PETA from using drones to harass hunters.
