Now You're Talking: Colorado Town Considers Offering Licenses/Bounties For Hunting Government Drones

July 18, 2013


The podunk town of Deer Trail, Colorado, is considering selling drone hunting permits and offering $100 bounties for bringing in pieces of downed government drones. No word if they'll fall for a box of broken pinball parts.

"We do not want drones in town," Phillip Steel, the Deer Trail, Colo., resident who drafted the ordinance, told Denver's ABC7 affiliate. "They fly in town, they get shot down."

Steel said that while he's never seen a drone flying in Deer Trail, the ordinance is a "symbolic" one.

"I do not believe in the idea of a surveillance society, and I believe we are headed that way," he said.

David Boyd, one of Deer Field's seven board members, supports the drone ordinance.

"Even if a tiny percentage of people get online (for a) drone license, that's cool," Boyd said. "That's a lot of money to a small town like us. Could be known for it as well, which probably might be a mixed blessing, but what the heck."

Ahahahaha, now I kinda want to move to Deer Trail, sounds like a pretty progressive little town. *Wikipedias Deer Trail, Colorado* Haha, they claim it's 'Home of the Worlds First Rodeo' in 1869. Oh man, only 550 residents. Be honest -- how many pretty girls do you think live there? Okay, what about old ladies who were pretty in their youth? What? You think I won't date the 1924 Deer Trail Rodeo Queen? Age is like, just a number. "She's 200." Okay so maybe it's a big number.

Thanks to TSGoifb, Elmer Duff, tony pepparoni, and my buddy Djamel, who can't wait for hunting season to start. Heck yeah! *dances around blasting shotgun off into the air* Shit, are we inside?

    can someone explain to me how gravity works?

  • The Earth sucks.

  • Charles Whelan

    I would just tape a bunch of disposable cameras to random hunks of metal and collect the $$$$$...

  • whacko

    Judging by that Oldsmobile in the background, this town is the height of prosperity...

  • I'm fine with this. But they should sell Terminator T800 hunting permits too. And permits to hunt Asimo the useless Honda robot. And Siri. Kill that bitch first.

    Do they not realize that drones fly at altitude? Chances of spotting one with naked eye, then being able to properly account for bullet travel to the drone = a shot that no one can make. Seriously you can't shoot a fucking plane out of the sky with a rifle.

  • asdfasdf

    but if you can make it even by random luck you're the most awesome hunter ever and get free drinks...provided you can find the part most resembling the "head" to mount on your wall

    (they know that though, this is tongue in cheek to draw attention to it or something along those lines)

    Oh boy, can't wait for passenger jets and cargo planes being taken down in the name of "MUH FREE AMURKKA" and "MUH CHEMTRAILS"
