Lawmakers worry about drones’ impact on hunting, fishing

Consider it a preemptive strike.

That’s how state Sen. Richard Kasunic described a pair of bills that would outlaw the use of drones to disrupt legal hunting and fishing activities in Pennsylvania.

“It hasn’t happened here in Pennsylvania yet, but I’m sure that in due time it will happen,” Kasunic, D-Fayette, said Wednesday.

The possibility may sound a little far-fetched, given that most of the talk about drones focuses on military capabilities. But  even Amazon is considering using unmanned aircraft to deliver packages, and Dominos is exploring ways to use a quad-copter to drop off piping-hot pizzas.

There’s another possible civilian use: monitoring hunters and anglers.
