It’s reasonable to be concerned about drones. They’re cheap, they’re plentiful, the government uses a lot of them, and it has shown disconcerting resistance to revealing just what they’re doing with flying spy robots. So Deer Trail, a small town in Colorado, is going to take matters into its own hands: It’s drone huntin’ season!
Introduced by Deer Trail resident Phillip Steel, the law is pretty straightforward. If you see a drone, blow it out of the sky and turn it in for a financial reward.
The ordinance states, “The Town of Deer Trail shall issue a reward of $100 to any shooter who presents a valid hunting license and the following identifiable parts of an unmanned aerial vehicle whose markings and configuration are consistent with those used on any similar craft known to be owned or operated by the United States federal government.”
