Colorado Town Considers Drone Hunting Licenses

‘If you don’t want your drone to go down, don’t fly it in town’

Deer Trail, a small Colorado town, is considering an ordinance that would allow its residents to hunt for federal drones and shoot them down.

The ordinance states, "the Town of Deer Trail shall issue a reward of $100 to any shooter who presents a valid hunting license and the following 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."

If passed by the town board, Deer Trail would charge $25 for drone hunting licenses and they would be valid for one year.
