Nevada just became a drone test site.  I used to manage an airport here that has been designated a drone site.  
They are working on fire fighting drones and other applications we all can agree are beneficial to the woodsmen
Before I retired from the Marines, we had hand launched planes we used to peek over hills.
It will not be long before outfitters use these drones to fly over areas to spot game, and take clients to them.  
Is it now not time to get your state officials to post legislation to have a " no fly 24 hours in advance" legislation?
We can either sit back and watch our hidey holes discovered and ruined by infrared equipped drones before they start, or fight the uphill  battle once they do it and get big money behind it.
Having been in meetings, most of us have no clue as to what these things can do.  Ruining traditional hunting may be a biproduct

Being proactive is much easier than trying to fix an existing problem.

I think the saying is an ounce of prevention....

Good insight.

You'll live longer!
