Woot good find sir. I'm sure that shooting down a federal drone will land you in more hot water than that hundred bucks is worth.......with that said, id take a shot as well.

It is officially open season on drones....take your fill boys and girls.

I was just pondering why they would do this, but then I read it as a symbolic gesture. Maybe they have some future plans for herb-plantages
As a non-us citizen I ask, are there many occurences of national drone-surveillance these days?

That is Comically Delicious.

Do you suppose the Government might have a problem with this at all?

That could damn near be construed as treason.

Though I Must admit if that was going on here in the area I live I would get my license.

$25.00 is a small price to pay for that kind of satisfaction.

That seems it would be a declaration of war between the fed and state.

No but you WILL get ahold of some nifty optical gear in salvage.

I guess the season is open in Arizona year around,

I do wonder how many inches across the drones wings have to be to be a legal take-down.

Are drones to be physically tagged at the time of harvest?

What about copters. Are they considered a different species and will they under the same rules as fixed wing?

So many questions still.

I love this - Federal Gov't meet the midwest rural populations.

We all carry guns and know how to use them - fitting the drone survelliance into the hunter mentality.

Kind of like the "feral cat" season in Wisconsin.

Love not living in the liberal cities of the coasts.

Nice sentiments in such a law and bounty system, but good luck hitting one. They're small, and they're way up high. I'd imagine folk in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen would already have been shooting them down if it were that easy.

Never mind that federal law generally trumps state law.

Sure thing to shoot down a drone that could be possibly searching for someone that maybe lost in or in danger. I don't know much about US states but I presume Colorado has a lot of mountains and forests. So there you are stuck half way up a mountain, rescue teams send out a drone to look for you .. But someone shot it down

Sorry if I sound rude .. It's 6:30 am and the whole drone business I really don't understand
