ENVER — Hunters in Colorado are lining up for a hot new license: $25 to shoot down a government drone over the village of Deer Trail.
Supporters acknowledge the licenses would be only symbolic, and a town election authorizing them is more than a month away. Still, about 1,000 people have applied for one.
- Are there limits on how many drones you're allowed to bag?
- Are you allowed to use a searchlight to hunt after dark?
- Where do you affix your drone tag: wing, nose or rear stabilizer?
- How do you track a wounded drone?
- Are you allowed to use an electronic drone mating signal or drone exhaust to attract the beasts?
- Are there caliber limitations; perhaps nothing bigger than 20mm?
- Are you allowed to hunt them from a moving vehicle - ala Taliban style?
I think it's probably a ploy to slam an extra $25,000 into the town's budget.
But ya know what? I'd probably spring for it just for the yuks.
