Cambridgezowie a couple of these guys are trolls with nothing to do but argue! They ruin a normal discussion! The best thing to do is totally ignore them and their posts! Just read and write like they weren't here!

Saw a story on the news this week. A women was hit in the head and injured from a drone that apparently fell from the sky while she was watching a youth baseball game.

So now the question, Should these drone "pilots" have to carry liability insurance and be licensed?

I would be just little upset if me or one of my family were injured by a drone "strike". I wonder how many lawyers were in line at the hospital when the women was transported?

What recourse does someone have if they are injured or suffer property damage from a drone. What about flying over and near highways, causing an accident.

Wow, this is going to get very interesting.

Read an article this am in the "Bow Hunting" Magazine, that Montana has now joined in banning them for hunting and scouting. Colorado and Alaska were the 1st.

Ohio added this last year-
"All hunting from motor vehicles, except boats and machinery being used in farm operations, is prohibited. Hunting small game and furbearers except mink, muskrat, otter, and beaver is lawful from a boat or powercraft. Aircraft or drones are prohibited in hunting or the aid of hunting for all game."

but it says nothing about scouting......you essentially can scout a area, field etc...... Similar to wireless cameras that transmits photos directly to you when they are taken. Pope and Young and Boone and Crockett clubs have added bans on these issues-.

-Using drones to take pictures or video, or transmitting this information live whether scouting or during a hunt takes unfair advantage over a game animal and other hunters.

-Trail cameras can be a helpful tool in game management and selective hunting. The use of devices that transmit captured or live images or video from the field back to the hunter crosses the line of fair chase.

P&Y-

"By the use of electronic devices for attracting, locating or pursuing game or guiding the hunter to such game"

Drones Position Statement

The core values of the Pope and Young Club revolve around the principles of high standards of conduct and ethics in our bowhunting lifestyle. The Club believes that an ethical code is necessary for all responsible bowhunters and is the key to protecting bowhunting's future in our society. The concept of fair chase is a component of an ethical code. Simply defined, fair chase is the ethical, sportsmanlike and lawful pursuit of free-ranging wild game animals in a manner which does not give the bowhunter an improper or unfair advantage over the animal. In addition to following all bowhunting laws and regulations, adherence to the Rules of Fair Chase is required by anyone submitting an entry into the Club's Records Program. Though such rules focus on the pursuit itself, the spirit of fair chase is an attitude and a way of life based in a deep-seated respect for wildlife, for the environment and for other individuals who share the bounty of our natural resources.

Drone/UAV-assisted Bowhunting:
Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Systems (commonly called "drones") are familiar as a military aerial reconnaissance and weapons platform. They are increasingly playing a more popular role in civilian life. UAV's have high potential to contribute to the fields of wildlife biology, search-and-rescue, agriculture and many other applications. However, use of these highly sophisticated remote-controlled aircraft to scout, monitor and stalk North American big game to aid in bowhunting activities is a fundamental violation of the rules of Fair Chase. The Pope & Young Club believes the use of this technology as a bowhunting aid represents a significant threat to fair chase bowhunting and fair distribution of bowhunting opportunity.

We urge all Pope & Young Club members to refrain from using Drones/UAV's to locate, monitor, scout or stalk any North American big game species. UAV-assisted bowhunting violates the existing rule that states, "you may not use electronic devices for attracting, locating, or pursuing game, or guiding the hunter to such game."

While the Pope & Young Club acknowledges the potential use of UAV's for purposes of science and game surveys and even to attain non hunting shots such as scenery, etc. for outdoor television shows, we feel strongly that in order to protect the principles of fair chase and fair opportunity, UAV's may not be used as a bowhunting aid. We have a responsibility to make sure that bowhunting remains a primitive pursuit involving woodcraft and skill, not merely exploiting technology.

Accordingly, P&Y supports efforts by state wildlife authorities to ban the use of UAVs to aid or assist in bowhunting.

In august when your "not hunting" and you use a drone that is not precisely saying you can't.

But I also agree that it needs to be more "precise" in the wording since it says - Aircraft or drones are prohibited in hunting or "the aid of hunting for all game." If your not hunting it isn't an aid.

B&C has it-

-Using drones to take pictures or video, or transmitting this information live whether scouting or during a hunt takes unfair advantage over a game animal and other hunters.
