It’s probably not a good idea to fly your spy drone around a hunting club.

From NBC10 Philadelphia:

Police are investigating an incident at a Berks County hunting club in which someone on the hunting grounds allegedly targeted a mechanical flying object rather than a living and breathing one.

SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness (SHARK) are in the midst of a campaign against the Wing Pointe commercial hunting grounds in Hamburg, Berks County and its live pigeon shoots in which the birds are shot down. SHARK began to use an “Octocopter,” a remote controlled flying machine with a high tech video camera, to secretly record the pigeon shoots as they happen.


The drone, nicknamed “Angel,” was recording a live pigeon shoot on Sunday around 3 p.m. when investigators say it was suddenly struck by gunfire.

SHARK claimed “a single sharp rifle crack rang out,” in a press release sent out on Monday. The group says the camera’s video feed was terminated and the drone went out of control before it was manually brought down. The gunshot caused around $4,000 in damage to the camera, according to SHARK.

State Police are investigating the incident. SHARK claims this is the fourth time the drone has been shot at while trying to spy on what they claim are inhumane pigeon shoots.

  • HA! Invade the air space of a hunting club and get surprised when your RC toy is hit by gunfire,…yeah, that makes a lot of sense. Am I the only one seeing the humor in this?

  • Steve

    Nope, couldn’t have happened to a more sleezy group of liberals. The one that got that thing needs some fresh meat on the table complements of the hunting club.

  • Plib

    Way funny!! Love it!

  • Aaron

    Awesome! More of their drones need to be shot down.

  • the drumbs are beating.

    All Drones need to be shot down.

    They should have shot it, stripped it of its components and then left it on miniature cinder blocks.

    Flying in the wrong neighborhood should have severe consequences.

  • Dusty

    Notice how the news story was only from 1 point of view. Totally blatant attempt to try brainwash us.

  • Red Scare

    Good shot on the rifleman’s part. Why a shotgun wasn’t used is a mystery to me, but whatever works. Unless of course SHARK doesn’t know the difference between a rifle and a shotgun…

  • MC

    Its funny but watch, this hunting club is going to get sued for destruction of property, and if the court sides with the idiot animal people, this will be precedent!! If we start shooting these things down, we need to make sure it comes down in a million pieces on our own property, then let the morons come to our doors asking for it back

    This is good cause for every state to consider changing invasion of privacy law to include using airborne drones to invade someone’s privacy/property rights. The gun club was on their private property and engaged in a lawful act. Their privacy and property rights were violated and they have been harassed.
    Can the gun club legally use drones to look into the bedroom window of these activists? What law would they violate if they did that the activists didn’t already violate by using their drone to invade the privacy of the gun club? If there is an existing law protecting privacy… and I suspect there is… why isn’t the activist group being charged by the police? What is the difference between using a drone to trespass on another’s property versus physically invading another’s property? If I can use a drone to legally look inside your bedroom window why would it be illegal for me to stand outside your bedroom window to look in?
    Clearly the activist violated the rights both property and privacy of the gun club and engaged in harassment of the gun club members. There can be no dispute of these facts. While it can be assumed a gun club member shot the drone proving who it was who actually shot the drone will be difficult to do in a criminal case.

    Awesome, good shooting..

  • rabbit

    Gee, sorry Officer, I thought it was a duck.

    “SHARK claims this is the fourth time the drone has been shot at while trying to spy”…

    4 times?!?!….nothing like a retarded libturd at the controls.

  • geo 23

    absolutely right doug 25427.
    next time they ought to consider equiping a hobby type rocket with rc controls & try to shoot it down that way… have some fun with it.


    The person that shot it, should have shot it a few more times, picked it up after shooting it down properly and tossed it inot the gun club’s dumpster.
