You have to love the fighting spirit of rural America when you hear news like that out of Deer Trail, Colorado where officials are debating whether or not to issue permits to shoot down drones.
“Officials from Deer Trail, Colo., are thinking about issuing $25 hunting licenses to shoot down drones. The town would even go further and award $100 to someone with a license who could provide proof that he shot down the drone”
Needless to say the Feds were not real happy about the idea of citizens attempting to down one of their high priced drones. The FAA pleaded with the public not to shoot at the drones. Officials from Deer Creek responded by saying that “The FAA doesn’t have the power to make a law”. With that in mind perhaps the FAA should think twice about routing drones on flight paths that overfly Deer Creek.
