The New Year’s Eve drone hunt contest has become a tradition in many parts of the country, especially here in PA where people like shooting things.
Drones have proliferated almost everywhere. At first they were owned and operated by licensed professionals who were trained to control them. But that was then, this is now. Licences aren’t required anymore and any yahoo who wants one can buy one.
As a result, many have escaped and become an invasive nuisance. You can’t go for a walk in the woods without being buzzed.
While being buzzed doesn’t bother most people, it is devastating to wildlife. To help control the drone population it’s become legal to hunt them year round. No bag limit.
Annual drone hunt contests have become very popular.
Even though it was foggy last year, the drone hunt contest in Bucks, PA had hundreds of participants. 3,256 drones were blasted out of the sky. The winner was Hady Cnychwr, from Wales, who bagged 216 of the flying fuckers.
