    I find this probably the most interesting part of the article. I wonder what their plans are? Add some armor and guns to protect the pigeons?

    Towboater, you sure you didn't obscure the flight visual with that smoke wagon and it crashed.

    They're acting like it was intentional -- that multi-rotored helicopter thing clearly resembles a pigeon in the right light.

    Do these people really believe they have the right to spy on private property? What am I thinking of course they do because they are liberals and can do no wrong.

    That last paragraph, I'd take it as a serious threat. The type where people get hurt.

    That's outstanding but why did they cancel the pigeon shoot? Shoot the flying rats and the drone, and every drone, every time.

    They need to bring an old punt gun next time, and turn that drone into scrap.

    The article stated that the thing crashed on a public highway, couldn't the cops nail those people for unauthorized landing of aircraft, or just plain littering?:)

    Anyone can sit in a public road way and watch anyone they please. Why can't you do it from overhead? These guys, as much of a nuisance as they are, are legally in the green.

    So maybe they were in the green as far as trespass laws go, but many places have some kind of laws against voyeurism. And the people being spied on weren't in the public road way.

    Maybe some ball and buck. When they start sending them up we can all get together and see which loads work best. Lord knows there'll be enough of em following some of us around.
