Common sense goes a longs way, pilot evidently lost his for a while.
^^^^^^ this. Contact the local game warden

This happened to me once but with an actual helicopter with a pilot & shooter. It was a Tuesday morning, the weather was perfect, deer were everywhere and about 30 minutes after day this Richard-head flew into my set and hovered over the feeder. I guess he was looking for pigs and didn't expect anyone to be out there early in the week. They found out pretty quick though when I jumped out of my blind and gave em the bird with both hands. Landowner didn't give them permission and eventually the GW figured out who it was and confronted them but no recourse was taken, just a firm "you're not welcome, don't do it again".

I took a LE drone "pilot" course several years ago that was sponsored by several drone companies. My take away from that 2 day class was that the majority of the drone companies don't give a d*mn about the privacy problems that are resulting from their product.

Drones offer incredible capabilities, but laws need to be written to safeguard landowner and the general public rights. Based on that class, I will say that several jamming options afford excellent countermeasures for invasive drones.

Of course, I also highly recommend that all FAA rules and regulations are followed closely.

My understanding is the drone owner is going to have the law on his side if someone gets caught shooting it down...I've seen several articles over the years & it never worked out well for the shooter. I'm guessing the fancier ones are recording constantly & got ya on film??

If you're not shooting from the front then they can't prove ****. It was probably a poacher that shot it down.

Back when we had a pool, a military chopper flew over and hovered. We didn't have a problem with it because they started dropping Snickers bars to us.

But then the sUAV PIC would have to explain to the FAA why he was flying BVLOS.

Our next door neighbor had a drone outside their kids window a couple weeks back. News helicopters normally dont try to video children in their bedrooms. This is just one example of the problem and why laws need to be updated as an unmanned drone is very different than a helicopter or plane.
The FAA updates drone laws all the time.

That is specifically for fixed wing aircraft.

400 and that includes 400 over any structure. Basically anything attached to the ground is part of the ground. So if a building is 150 tall, the drone can fly 400 over it or 550 over the actual ground level.

I would not hesitate to shoot it down. I will deal with the legality later if I have to do so.
