I doubt KY will be letting us use drones in the near future. They have a ban on all electronic devices. This includes electronic turkey calls and deer calls, and electronic remote control decoys.

Not all, you can still use trail cams. An unarmed drone is basically a trail cam that moves, is it not?

And just as a further thought, how about electronic sights on bows and guns? What about lazer rangefinders? They're certainly electric, right?

Woods walker, posted a video a while back, with cattle being herded with a radio controlled monster truck. It worked quite well, at moving livestock like a sheepdog. There is no doubt in my mind, that drones would herd deer. I too, would be pissed, and headed for the neighbor's house with a game warden and sheriff.
Criminal trespass to start, I'm sure there would be something about state property, harassing wildlife, or at least the drone would be mistaken for a game bird.
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

Trail cam bans will never happen. It is too big of an industry and those in the industry will make sure they are not banned. And I don't have a problem with them, and I would guess most of you do not either, even if you do not use them.

Drones on the other hand - I think they should be banned for hunting use, for the reasons already discussed in this thread. And I would bet most of you agree. We all need to start contacting our local DNR and state legislation on this. Once they start selling these things in large numbers and making boatloads of money, it may be too late - the corporations will send out their lobbyists to make sure they are not banned.

X-2 MZS. And I might add that it may already be too late. Tech advances move SOOO fast that by the time most of us are aware of what they can do, they've already done it.

And I was just playing devil's advocate with the cams, because ALL that stuff is electronic, so where do you draw the line, and who get's to decide where that line is? And is that line permanent or temporary?

Well when it comes to property lines does it hold true you own so much "space not only below you(mineral rights) but a certain amount of space above you?...The FAA has set a no fly zone above 400ft for such things. So they regulate above 400ft...who regulates below 400ft?

Hey kell, I was trying to find that clip about the cattle not too long ago. Do you recall where I posted it?
