I suppose some of us rely a bit too much on trail cams, but drones?

At least P&Y are on the ball. Trust me its only a matter of time before we start hearing about somebody out there shooting game via remote control. Unchecked progressivism, plain and simple.

The way the statement is worded; it sounds like trail cameras would fall into the same category?

"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."

No drones or trail cameras, but baiting with donuts and corn is just fine... [Confused]

With the game and fish commissions raising cane about hogs in their states and wanting them killed out it could be very possible that they will be permitted to be used.Here there were hogs in the bottoms from the time my great great grand parents moved here and I cant see where they have ever been any problem with them.Now that the game and fish cant regulate people hunting them here they gripe about them.I would just as soon take a good hog as I would a deer.Both eat real good!!!!

There should be no cameras on public land, it is invasion of the privacy of others using that public space. Niether the government or the people should have right to spy on others with drones, if they are going to be used for hunting, the abuses will be certain. Hunting should have adventure in it. If it is reduced to a video game, very soon all hunting will be nothing more than a video game. When you do see someone playing a video game, you can tell immediately who the loser is in that game.

Chuck: I'd interpret it the same way.Trail cameras certainly help hunters locate game and they aid in guiding hunters to such game. Another case of technology outrunning regulations. They're in such wide use now that few game agencies will have the courage to ban them.

It's encouraging to see P&Y try to get out in front of this one, but I expect UAVs will quickly be added to the bowhunter's repertoire. I can hear the raationale now. "It's just another hunting tool." Yeah, sure. [dunno]

I don't understand why that is even appealing to anyone. The hunting experience would be so diluted by the use of drones, you'd need a different word than "hunting" to describe what you were doing.

Years ago I watched a local remote control airplane club play shooting games with their toys rigged with 22 caliber ammo. With the latest technology, crap will hit the fan everywhere. http://www.infowars.com/new-whistleblower-reveals-nsa-picking-drone-targets-based-on-bad-data-death-by-unreliable-metadata/

Last I heard the FAA hasn't approved the use of drones at all, so maybe we're getting worked up over nothing...p&y seems.to be making a statement about a controversy that doesn't actually exist.

I think P&Y is just trying to be the early bird and get people in the bowhunting community feeling negative against drones so that if and when it happens in the future their use/acceptance will be stillborn. I applaud them for the effort. As far as hogs go, say here in FL for example, I can't possibly see the logic of allowing drone use until it is legal to hunt them year round on PUBLIC land and at night. That's something I'm personally all for here in FL: year round hog hunting on public land, at night if possible. There is zero logical need to conserve pigs, they are destructive and invasive.

If they would be allowed for hogs at night, they will be everywhere else. Position statements from the P&Y people or the FAA, will have little effect. Instead of having the gun hunter's pickups riding up and down our gravel roads during deer archery season, they will be flying drones around while we are hunting. Down the road when Chairman Hillairy Mao wants to ban them, I can just hear the, 'peel my cold dead fingers off my remote', statements. But really, I bet they would fun to shoot at.
