PETA Drone Target

Manasquan, NJ --(Ammoland.com)- The crazies at PETA are at it again with a plan to acquire remote control drones to fly over hunters in the woods and keep tabs on so called “Slob Hunters” who are just killing and maiming piles of game animals and leaving them to die.

This would be funny if it were not a direct quote from the wackos at PETA:

“The talk is usually about drones being used as killing machines, but PETA drones will be used to save lives,” says PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk. “Slob hunters may need to rethink the idea that they can get away with murder, alone out there in the woods with no one watching.”

From the PETA Press Release:

“The group is shopping for one or more drone aircraft with which to monitor those who are out in the woods with death on their minds. PETA aims to collect video footage of any illegal activity, including drinking while in the possession of a firearm, a common complaint from those who live near wooded areas; maiming animals and failing to pursue them so that they die slowly and painfully; and using spotlights, feed lures, and other hunting tricks that are illegal in some areas but remain common practices among hunters. PETA currently has its sights on Australia-based Aerobot and its state-of-the-art remote-controlled CineStar Octocopter.”

“PETA also intends to fly the drones over factory farms, popular fishing spots, and other venues where animals routinely suffer and die.”

Sounds to me like this will create a whole new shooting sport. “PETA Drone Target Shooting”

    1. Given that Texas and Idaho join the growing list of a dozen states considering state laws aimed at legislating the use of unmanned aircraft systems (‘Drones’). The number of states either developing or actively pursuing UAS legislation includes…

      California, Florida, Idaho, Maine, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas and Virginia

      And given these are big hunting states, how exactly PETA going to do this?

      Why do I see the PETA crazies using the drone to ram into a hunter, whether he is hunting legally or not. Or more simple yet, using the racket those things make to make sure the hunter can’t get close to any game.

    3. Zo,

      PETA is a domestic terror organization that condones firebombing businesses and practices their own unique forms of hypocrisy. Like all true terrorists, they don’t CARE about laws.

    4. Damn, gonna have to use those 3 1/2′ers to reach for those drones. PULL!!

    5. [...] like PETA may be doing their part to make things more interesting. They’ve announced plans to buy drones to “monitor” hunters. This could be [...]

      A Frequency jammer would stop the drone or use woods for cover or a 10ga with a full choke 000 buck

      It has come to my attention that not only is the Govt. using Drones but PETA is looking for drones to keep an eye on Hunters,Fisherman and any one who camps in the dunes,woods and coast.
      Enough is enough I have a solution!!
      Today April09/2013 0445 hrs CALIFORNIA / yuppie time
      I Have come up with a mandated law for the Feds and any flying unmanned spy drone.
      All govt. drones need to be easily marked so they are NOT to be mistaken for a terrorist spy drone and shot down and set on fire.
      Any unmarked flying objects will be treated as hostile an will be shot down and set on fire!!

      Drone Vs.Drone

      I welcome the drones. I look forward to the target practice.

    9. Becker on April 9, 2013 at 8:41 AM said:

      If you see one of these things flying around you, while hunting, get behind a tree so you can’t be filmed and shoot the SOB down. Then stomp it all to hell.

      Any flying eye in the sky should be fair game be it Peta , of goverment !

    11. It sure looked like a duck to me….

    12. Many states have hunter protection laws prohibiting harassment of lawfully hunting. Will your local prosecutors charge these PETA pukes?

    13. No! No! No… don’t destroy it… take it home and mount it on the wall right next to your 8 pointer! What a trophy!!!

    14. Pantera Vazquez on April 9, 2013 at 9:57 AM said:

      So the question now to be asked is-when these drones get shot down as they interfere with hunters, whose side will the law favor? the hunter who is going about his business, or the group who has been known to use terrorist tactics to achieve their goals. I would expect different states will offer varied scenarios.

    15. You all know this; PETA People Eating Tasty Animals! Good hunting. Drone’s, is that a new type of flying DUCK?

    16. New sport called drone hunting.

    17. I guarantee PETA will use these drones to disrupt lawful hunting.
      I reckon that makes the drones legitimate targets & an excuse to get out the 8 gauge. :-)

      OK, so what round is best for Drones?

      These people need to get a hobby.

    19. Lets use drones to follow PETA members in their daily lives with the same lack of respect of privacy! Because I’m sure they wouldn’t mind. Oh that’s right we all have better things to do with our time than to harass innocent people and their rights to privacy. At least what we have of them, thanks to inconsiderate left wing trash.

    20. Michael on April 11, 2013 at 10:49 PM said:

      Another ploy for attention. First off my concerns are PETA is an ORG and is bound by the same laws as a government agency or should be required to be when flying drones. Why privacy for the hunters who in a wilderness wants a drone in the air>. Which bring us to my second point in a wilderness area most anything with a motor is banned including pedal mountain bikes what will be the impact to a natural setting because these drones are not real quiet what animal life (think birds) will their flights impact? Its a preserver and they are already banned on Fed land and over privacy private.

      Shoot the game first then the drone if it cannot return to base dah and the suckers are within eye sight you’d have a gun lol no recovery because line of sight also has to do with their low power video feed.

    23. Shoot down as many drones as possible. Those things are expensive and PETA has to pay for every one that’s destroyed. My goal is to cause more damage to them than they do to me.

    24. PETA is run and controlled by Jesuits.

    25. muppets.

    26. “crazies at Peta”…..i fully support them. as long as there are people in the world who care for animal welfare…they have my support. Guns???….Ammoland?……..what a joke

    27. @angry combat vet., just so you are reminded since you probably know frequency and radio jammers are highly illegal. That is all, over and out for now.
