Pretty sure I heard a story about some peta members harassing some gun hunters with a drone, which promptly got shot down. Not sure of the details though

I think they would be cool.  Not only could we find game outright, we can outfit them with the most current heat seek technology so we can find the critters day or night.  

Think about using it to find bedding AND feeding areas.  Then, you can send it beyond the critter and have a round up, driving it past the hunters.  

Then,  we can make a set up where the unit is equipped with a small version of a crossbow, powered by compressed gas or a small explosive device.  

We don't even have to go outside in the cold or rain.

This is getting better and better.

And use the heat signature to find the critter and mark it using GPS technology so we can find it.  

Then we can send out a remote controlled 4 wheeler complete with hook arm to drag the critter out of the woods and put it into the back of the pick up so we can drive around and show everybody what we got.

I love the future.

So, since I will be sitting on my. . backside doing all of this,  Is a 20# bow enough to kill a deer ?

only if you use a draw-loc, expandable head, ILF with laser range finder and sighting setup that shoots over 250fps.  :)

Sounds like good practice for wing shooting.    :biglaugh:
