    I don't hunt, so my best chance will be to snag one from the sky with my 6 wt. If I can accomplish that, I should be awarded "bonus points.":cool: Ha! In my dreams!

    From 1998 through 2012 PETA killed over 87% on the animals turned in to it's Northern Virginia facility.

    That's really "caring" for animals.

    That seems like the least effective way possible to do this. Wouldn't it be easier to walk down to the river with a hand held video camera?

    I know most of this is banter but I do believe if hunting water fowl it is illegal to carry lead ammo with you.

    Having said that, I don't think I would have any problem knocking one of those things out of the sky with my 25.06. Matter of fact the game would be who shoots it down first, me or someone else. How about a joint take down. On the count of three; one, two, Three, FIRE! I wonder what one of those things would look like after being hit by a number of high powered rounds simultaneously.

    It's really too bad the idiots don't spend there money one worthwhile projects --- like protesting dog fighting, cock fighting, animal abuse by pet owners, etc.

    Using RC units to watch hunters and anglers is a waste of their time and money when they, if they really wanted, could be doing some good in regards to genuine animal abuse by humans.

    AT this point, they come off as just a bunch of whack jobs making statements that make them look even whacker.

    Wing nuts with more money than sense.

    Dont worry, have you seen the size of those drone and large scale rv helicopter control panels? They'll snap their vegan arms in 5 minuets of joystick time

    PETA is about making money and are egomaniac attention whores looking for a TV camera and attention. They could care less about the welfare of animals.

    I have yet to see a PETA member donate their time or moneynto local animal rescues and shelters. The wife and I try and get to shelters and help a few times month and never see them. I know the PETA org has not donated a cent to shelters.


    15 years ago I had the tires slashed on my truck during a bow hunt in MD by caring PETA members who were protesting the the archery deer opener. Came back the next day and the PETA protetstors followed me into the woods I led them through a big patch of poison ivy then through a muddy swamp. I was Prepared wearing hip waders so not affected.


    The only thing PETA members and leadership do well is kill puppies and kittens. PHUG EM

    Moses Lake's big airport (the old AFB not the one east of town) is supposed to be in the running for drone development central. They'll be watching you fishing at Rocky Ford. You may not want to shoot those down, though... I'm guessing some can shoot back.
