Tired of those pesky UAV drones hogging the skies? A small town in Colorado is doing their part to “thin the herd” by proposing a drone hunting season. If you can drop a piece of flying federal property, with nothing larger than a 12 gauge, Deer Trail Colorado will pay a cash reward.
According to Huffington Post
No background checks would be required, and all licenses would be “issued on an anonymous basis.” Additionally, there’s no residency requirement, so long as the hunting occurs within Deer Trail only. The license applicant must also be older than 21 and “able to read and understand English.”
Those who are successful in shooting down or damaging a drone will be rewarded for their marksmanship. Bring in a fuselage or a wing with markings from the U.S. government, and the town will pay you $25. A whole drone? That’s worth $100.
