Thumbs up Using Technology to Find Game!

Hey guys, picked up on an idea from another forum and just wanted to share it!

As a Florida resident who hunts regularly between local areas and Georgia I find it quite efficient to use the ability of drones for scouting out an area before heading out and potentially scarring away game or wasting my time. I purchased a DJI Inspire with the Flir XT thermal camera attachment from the local shop here in Jax called "BuiltDrones" this is where I picked mine up and it works great, but anywhere to get your hands on one is of course awesome! I never leave the house without it and it's a permanent addition to my collection of gear, definitely recommend checking it out!

Happy hunting!

Nothing like your first post to jump right in it.

In some states its illegal to do what you are doing, hopefully in the near future it will be illegal in the rest of the country!

HEY, can you attach a remote controlled gun to a drone so it can fire and kill the deer too ?, that way you never have to leave your car.

That kind of topic on a first post ? Sorry , I'm calling it Anti-hunter bait . Someone with the kind of money for a fancy drone and claiming to be a hunter would already know the ethics rules pertaining to drones . Sorry , not biting .

I think I read somewhere that it's not able to ban them due to the fact anything above 1 inch above ground is controlled by the FAA? Not sure if that is accurate.

But then you would have to develop one that drags the deer out!.......lol

Norwegian company Griff Aviation has recently introduced a drone that can carry over 400 lbs!
