Use of Drones While Hunting
Orion-The Hunters' Institute Position Statement
Use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Systems (commonly called “drones”) to aid or assist in hunting.
It is the position of Orion-the Hunters’ Institute that the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Systems (UAVs) to aid or assist in hunting should be banned. We believe that the use of airborne camera and sensing equipment gives an unfair advantage to the hunter over game and is therefore a clear violation of the principles of fair chase.
We further urge States to immediately ban the use of UAVs in hunting before it can become established.
