So I’m sitting here (sweating my ass off) watching a plot/rd in a clear cut. Wind isn’t ideal, but decided to try it anyway. I’m checking out/scanning in my rangefinder whenever I hear a swarm of yellow jackets, and they sound pissed... I’m thinking a few of these pesky hogs might’ve messed up and wallered up a nest.. then the sound gets louder... a fucking drone came up the wood line, and stopped to hover over the food plot, up the road, spun, saw me, and high tailed off. I brought it up to the owner of the lease I’m in and he said that it’s an asshole property owner that butts up to us, and this isn’t the first time he’s done it... so needless to say, next time I see that thing flying it’s gonna go from a hunt to target practice...

Its illegal to shoot them down. But if it's close enough a long jig will work

Same thing happened to me on a dove field on my property a few weeks ago. If it had gotten close enough to me I was damn sure gonna shoot down

Pretty sure that thing has to be within sight of the operator at all times. If it’s not, I would assume it’s gone rogue and you will be doing the right thing if you drop it before it injures someone
If it’s a DJI it doesn’t

How far from the property line are you hunting ? I'm wondering what kind of range that he can operate the drone from ? And I would dust it next time !

Doesn't the FWC have a law against harassing hunting?

I will ask a friend of mine today.

So it's flying over the property line and hovering over you while hunting?

If so, approximately how low did it get?

Myself, shoot it down and hide it.
