Colorado town, concerned about surveillance, considers drone hunting licenses

Recommended Posts

The small Colorado town of Deer Trail is considering an ordinance that would create drone-hunting licenses and offer bounties for hunters who shoot down an unmanned aerial vehicle.

"We do not want drones in town," Phillip Steel, a resident in town who drafted the ordinance and submitted it for approval by the town board, told The Denver Post. "They fly in town, they get shot down."

They say the ordinance is mostly symbolic. They also recognize it's against federal law to destroy federal property.
