Want to hunt a drone? Go to this Colorado town
The Deer Trail Town Board in Colorado is considering a hunting season on drones, complete with a bounty on provable kills.
In addition to raising awareness of the surveillance state, the town might be offering Coloradans an affordable hunting opportunity -- at $25 -- only a fraction of the cost of most other Colorado hunting licenses.
No word yet if drone barbecues will become part of the tradition after a successful hunt.
Drone hunters would be limited to using shotguns, and would earn a $100 bounty if they can present "identifiable parts of an unmanned aerial vehicle whose markings and configuration are consistent with those used on any similar craft known to be owned or operated by the United States federal government."
The ordinance's author, Deer Trail resident Philip Steel, tells ABC 7 News he has never seen a drone in Deer Trail, and that the ordinance is a symbolic against the surveillance state and intended as a novelty revenue stream.
