SENATE PASSES BILL TO BAN DRONES FOR HUNTING, HUNTER HARASSMENT
From the Livingston Daily
Michigan legislators have shot down efforts to use drones in hunting.
The state Senate last week passed legislation that would not only ban hunters from using drones to track game but ban other groups from using drones to track hunters.
The bills passed unanimously with state Sen. Joe Hune, R-Hamburg Township, voting yes on each.
Banning hunting by drone has been a key priority of the Michigan United Conservation Clubs since last summer.
“It isn’t a big issue right now, but it is something we wanted to get ahead of,” MUCC spokesman Drew YoungeDyke said.
The unfair advantage drones could provide in tracking game “could give all hunters a black eye,” Youngedyke said.
