I think they were trespassing, and they seem like the kind of people that would yell foul if you breathed near them.

While I don't have any issue with hunting, the pigeon shooting looks kinda dumb and cruel, but the protesters act even worse.

They're using our hobby to spy on people? This is exactly the sort of thing that attracts the attention of Federal regulators.

It sounds like some dumb redneck decided to be cute & show off in front of his friends. If he had a problem with the quad-copter, why didnt he just go talk to the guy about it, civily. that reminds me of the US spy drone that, "i believe it was Libya", somehow took down, or took control of, and kept. US asked for it back, & they've decided to keep it.

Personally, I don't think dove hunting is a big deal. People do eat them. Now how smart was it to fly something over an area where people are shooting at things that fly.....???!!! Also I am sure the "activists" might have engaged in some harassment as that tends to be the norm.

Rednecks = +1
Tree huggers = -1 drone
All is as it should be.

If you check out any of their videos, you'll see that even the police talking to them doesn't entirely work. That group is anything but civil.
