Either way, I think it's time to start working on anti-drone weaponry. Maybe something akin to a flare gun that fires a 12 gauge blank and launches a small wire mesh designed to tangle propellers.
The guys where we hunt Pheasant every year have been harassed by animal rights nuts flying drones over their property. They shot a few down and ended up in court over it. Now they've gotten themselves approved as a heliport which prevents flying automated vehicles close enough to film the hunters. But I think a specific anti-drone weapon would be more fun to try.
You might even be able to make it spring loaded or something and avoid all the 'firearm regs'. Something to look into anyway, because it seems like there is going to be a market for it.
If you can get past the hysterical narration here is some video of the guys at WingPoint trying to shoot down the animal rights drone. As I said, the issue has since been resolved there by getting themselves zoned as a Heliport. The Animal rights nuts have since moved on.
BTW, Wingpoint is actually a first class operation. We've been shooting Pheasant there every year for some time now. I couldn't recommend the place more highly in spite of what this A-hole has to say about them. What they do there is perfectly legal, safe (when the appropriate rules are followed), and in keeping with the local environment since Pheasant can't survive well in the wild in that part of the country.
Apart from that, I think wing shooting (particularly at Wingpoint) is an excellent way to introduce kids to the joys of hunting. It's a social, active event that doesn't involve much hanging around and waiting. You're with friends. You're following the dogs. you're watching the air for the flush of a bird. Afterward you sit down to a nice lunch while they clean and pluck your birds, then deliver them to you wrapped in cellophane on a foam tray as if you bought them at the organic grocer. All that fun and you bring home dinner too. It's beautiful area easily accessible by car from Greater NYC, and is just a few miles from the mammoth Cabelas store in Hamburg.
I'm sorry to put you through such commercial for them, but I really do love the place (where after a few years now I'm on a first name basis with the staff), and I think it's only fair to offer a little balance to the hyperbolic video narration above. I highly recommend the location, and I will be shooting there again - probably in November or December of this year. You should too. Tell Cindy you heard about it from me, and that I said Hi.
