To protect the future of hunting,
Orion provides leadership on ethical and philosophical issues to promote fair chase and responsible hunting
|The Use of Drones While Hunting|
Orion, The Hunter's Institute Position Statement
Adopted by the Board of Directors September, 2013
Use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Systems (commonly called “drones”) to aid or assist in hunting.
It is the position of Orion, the Hunter's 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 they can become established.
