In this high-tech age of constant surveillance, it’s not a stretch to think there are cameras watching every move you make in every corner of the globe.

For hunters, it’s nice to escape these technological distractions and head into the wilderness, admiring nature for all its wonder, and reaping the benefits of simply being outdoors.

However, some think hunters should have Big Brother constantly watching our every move, and who else but PETA should take hunter harassment to a whole new level?

Enter PETA’s new Air Angel drone, a remote-controlled, quadricopter drone being marketed to the general public as “the new hobby for animal protectionists.”

That’s right, for just $324.99, “hobbyists” can bring home their very own drone—stickers included—that can send video and photos straight to the user’s phone, allowing them to track hunters from on high.

12 gauge Winchester Double X High-Velocity turkey loads are going for about $12 for a box for 1 7/8 oz loads in a 3" shell.

I can afford to play the Sporting Drones game all day long.

A man with a shotgun took matters into his own hands to bring down a drone flying over his neighbor’s home, according to police along the Jersey Shore.

Lower Township Police said they received a call Friday around 5:30 p.m. from the drone’s owner, who said he was flying the device over his friend’s home along the 1000 block of Seashore Drive in Lower Township, Cape May County, to gather some aerial photographs of construction being done at the home when the drone suddenly went down.

165 ft won't get it to where most people hunt without getting the harasser within maximum effective range of the harassee in most cases.

165 feet = 55 yards. At that distance, they could just snap a freaking picture. I wonder how many people will buy these. Probably enough to make me lose all my remaining faith in humanity.

Why waste a perfectly good turkey load. 1 1/4 oz of 6's or 4's should take care of these at 55 yards. :biggrin:

I drop Canada & Snow geese at 75 yards that look like they flew into a bridge abutment in mid air

I need some of those flu flu arrows.

Funny thing. To be in drone range, they'd have to be trespassing on your hunting property.

Virginia resident Jennifer Youngman caps a drone buzzing her property, which was probably spying on her neighbor Robert Duvall.
