Which States Or Organizations Are Opposed To Drones?
« on: February 08, 2016, 12:26:00 AM »
I am hearing more and more about how drones are being used for a whole host of new applications.  I know that some states have already enacted laws against their use in hunting or scouting.  Does anyone know which states?  
How about hunting organizations?  Which of those that you belong to have taken an official stand on the use of drones?

Kentucky has a bill working through the system now banning them from use in hunting.  To my knowledge hasn't passed yet.

NH was quick to ban the use of drones for any scouting/hunting. I believe VT did also.

It's easy sometimes to be the critic of state wildlife mgt. agencies. Praise is due to the agencies who take a stand on this issue.

BTW, NHF&G also took a stand regarding crossbows - they are relegated to the firearms season here.

Wyoming:
Section 12. Use of Aircraft to Spot or Locate Wildlife. No person shall use any aircraft to aid in the taking of any Wyoming wildlife, except predatory animals, whether by spotting or locating the wildlife, communicating with any person attempting to take the wildlife, or by providing other aid to any
person taking the wildlife within twenty-four (24) hours of being airborne. Nothing in this Section shall apply to commercial, commuter or other aircraft used for the sole purpose of passenger transport.
Drones are defined under "Aircraft" in the statutes

I railed against them and our agency declared the prohibition against flying obtained.  I disagree but they rule.  It is too easy to violate the spirit of the law as a drone is easier to operate and hide than a Cessna 172.  We actually were granted an FAA license as a drone testing site.  As the saying goes, "you ain't seen nuttin yet", these guys have some stuff going on

A neighbor kid and my son are into these quadcopters as they call them.  I won't let my son have one, but his friend has his own workshop where he wants to build his own that can fly 30 miles from his location.  He's got special goggles for flying it.  I must say it impresses me with how smart these 15 year olds are, because I could hardly understand what they were talking about, but it seems to me something that can be easily abused no matter what the laws state.  We now have more drones registered with the FFA than regular aircrafts.  I think the cost of licensing needs to be increased substantially as a limiting factor.
