Advantageous hunters in Alaska have one less advantage after the state’s Board of Game approved a measure that prohibits the use of drones to spot animals. Now they will just have to rely on their special camouflage clothing, high-powered rifles, and high-powered handheld cameras to kill unsuspecting beasts.
For the record, drone-assisted hunting isn’t quite yet an epidemic. According to the Anchorage Daily News, “the practice does not appear to be widespread,” but authorities are worried that it will become more popular as the technology gets cheaper. How exactly they plan to enforce the new ban in the vast expanses of Alaska’s wilderness is so far unclear. [sUAS News]
