Yeah, he got off, but I wouldn't count on that in the future. It probably depends on the acceptance of nerd indignation in the particular area. If the drone owner or his actions, were obnoxious in the opinion of the local powers that be, they could probably throw it out, feeling safe it wouldn't go to a higher court.


But I know they did the right thing.

Yes it is, the kind that fly down instead of up.
There's a website where you register your property as a no-fly zone.
A private website with no official standing.
All you have to do is enter your;
Name
Address
Phone number
Email address
GPS coordinates(optional)


Yeah, sure.

I could use a drone this coming week to fly around my few acres of woods in the hunting safety zone near my house, and have it take pics of the hunters who trespass and fire their rifles within a few yards of our windows. Maybe once it gets a good photo, with details on the hunting license visible, it could squirt essence of skunk onto them, or indelible neon purple dye. Or very smelly dye ... that would allow the Game Commission officers to positively identify the guys firing high-powered rifles in people's backyards.

I'm sure there must be a market for the skunk-dye-squirting mechanism.

They'll just say "Thanks!"

Lots of hunters use skunk scent as a cover-scent to mask human odor.

Really, Ortho, if those guys are on your property, or are on posted no hunting property, you can call the cops. In today's Great American Culture Of Fear, the cops would be all over those guys, like a cheap suit. Or better yet, call the fish and game folks, they'll set shit straight. With a quickness.

The cops don't answer hunter trespass calls in this area; only Game Commission officers do. They're good people but stretched thin. They possess a weapon that truly scares hunters, though: they can revoke hunting licenses. They do set these asshats straight, it's just that they aren't right nearby when you need 'em.

A hunting accident with bullet trajectory coming from the sky might be suspect, although at least the cops would answer THAT call ...

This is the first time I've heard of someone using a drone to protect their rights. Usually drones fall squarely on the anti-rights side of issues.

It's definitely up there with keeping armored bears.

I find it difficult to believe, in today's world, that cops won't respond to armed trespasser calls. Or, at the very least shots fired calls. In a populated area, no less...

Much worse than that, they can take your gun/bow, truck/vehicle, anything/everything in it, or attached to it. Sometimes for seemingly trivial infractions.
