Recently a few residents from a small town named Deer Trail, Colorado decided to write a proposed city ordinance to purchase “Drone Hunting Licenses” from the town for $25.  You can read the specifics of the proposed ordinance below however in a nutshell it would authorize license holders to shoot down drones that resemble a federal drone (i.e. wings, fuselage, propeller) – regardless of the purpose for which it is being used.

On the 6th of August 2013, the ordinance was put to a vote by the town council and it came to a tie which means it will go to a special election for the more than 500 residents of Deer Trail.  Falcon UAV was out in Deer Trail yesterday to educate the town council and its residents that their ordinance was misguided, at best, given that the use of drones in the civil market are going to be an enormous help for small communities and small businesses such as those in Deer Trail.

  1. Free drone mapping to a town that was super-hostile to unmanned aircraft? Now THAT'S how you handle that situation.
