As you might expect, the FAA has its panties in a twist over Deer Trail, CO issuing permits to residents to shoot down drones. I’d call it a sign of the times, citizens who are outraged at our ever-growing Orwellian surveillance society.
Under the proposed ordinance, Deer Trail would grant hunting permits to shoot drones. The permits would cost $25 each. The town would also encourage drone hunting by awarding $100 to anyone who presents a valid hunting license and identifiable pieces of a drone that has been shot down.
