    It is not much different than a "put-take" Pheasant or other game bird hunt using pen raised birds. Some had a pigeon bar-b-q after the shoot. Not many pigeon shoots left though.
    Although not that great they all have a chance of flying out of there unscathed.

    Someone hit the drone with a rifle shot. Give that man a ceegarr ! Seems drone season is underway. Sounds like a lot of fun to me.

    I can guarantee only one thing ...... if I own the property..... and it's flying over it .... to me it's invading my privacy and trespassing on my property..... and it's fair game at that point. They didn't respect someone else's rights but thought they had the 'right' to invade someone elses..... suffer the consequences .... learn a life lesson.

    On the other hand, I don't think I would ever be seen at a live pigeon shoot for any reason.

    But shooting down the drone is kind of funny.
    Pigeons do not fly with a predictable trajectory like a clay target. Much more realistic practice for hunting season than shooting trap or skeet.

    I might do to one.
    I probably wouldn't go to a dead pigeon shoot. Sounds boring. But that's just my opinion.

    You don't really believe that, do you? - they were being shot at before they really started flying; about 10 ft off the ground. Just b/c they get past the fence, doesn't mean they get away clean.

    In addition, if I shot down a drone over my land, it would be a very difficult retrieval for the operator.

    In the spirit of "turnabout is fair play," I wonder how the bunny huggers would react if someone flew a helo - manned or unmanned - over their private property, took pictures/videos, and then posted those images on YouTube. I bet the screams would be deafening and the ACLU would come running.

    Exactly. More propaganda and more money. Next time, they'll have a fleet of drones.

    I don't hunt either, I have no issue if someone does, but I'd hardly count a live pigeon shoot as a hunt, and although I am all for firearms rights, seeing the videos posted by SHARK, I tend to be on their side. Too much ass-hattery / douchyness from the 'hunter', especially when they willfully assault the SHARK people and destroy their equipment.

    Except, legally speaking, that's not how it works.

    I believe it is illegal to harass wildlife and game with a drone, but I don't think boxed pigeons qualify. Drones don't need taxidermy!
    I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.

    That currently does not restrict the use of RC planes flown by private citizens. And before someone nitpicks they did no fly it over a "populated area". If they can be doing a pigeon hunt I hardly would call it populated.

    From FAA.gov:

    Do I need to get approval from the FAA to fly a model aircraft for recreation?
    No. FAA guidance does not address size of the model aircraft. FAA guidance says that model aircraft flights should be kept below 400 feet above ground level (AGL), should be flown a sufficient distance from populated areas and full scale aircraft, and are not for business purposes. 1, 2

    V.

    If I fly a UAS for business purposes, such as new technology development, am I required to get approval from the FAA?
    Yes. There are presently two methods of gaining FAA approval for flying UAS: Special Airworthiness Certificates - Experimental Category (SAC-EC) for civil aircraft, and Certificates of Waiver or Authorization (COA) for public aircraft. 1, 3
    I fly these for fun. My GPS module even gives me HUDS.
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
