Good reason to carry some less than lethal shells in the field while bird hunting?

    They appear to be a domestic terrorist group. Using aircraft to wage mayhem.

    Wouldn't this be trespass? I need to look and see where "airspace" actually begins.
    The fact then evading an officer--all put on tape. They put the Hunt Club out of business???? We really need someone to sue this group out of existence.

    looks like a good reason to keep some bolo loads....


    take that chute right to the ground...




    no officer, i thought it was one of those peta groups, the way he swooped down at me, i thought he might have had a gun, and retaliate for me trying to get some dinner for my family tonight....

    i wasn't aiming at him, but i figured i might try to disable the chute, before he made another pass at me...

    Comments section is a mix of sad and hillarious.
    The "spokesperson" for shark.org is willing to embrace any illegality as long as that oppresses what that same person sees as "the immorality of hunting."

    So, not only do we see a video of deliberate FAA flight rules violation, and a hunter harrassment violation (which draws the County LE), the shark.org commentator has made comments supporting any future violation of hunter harassment. Video closing comments reports that they actions clised the hunting club, too.

    Hmm, willful violation of FAA flight/safety rules?
    Deliberate aforethought intention to violate hunters' rights laws?
    Deliberate intentention to prevent a person engaging in lawful trade oe commerce?

    Sounds a bit like an "admission against interest" to me, but, I'm only an RKI, not a barrister.

    No hunter harassment laws in Illinois? The goofy chicks shooting the vidio would be easy to catch. I wonder how they would feel about it if they where on a plane going down after sucking geese in the jets.

    If it saved one goose from being culled I would guess they would be cool with it, or at least they should be if they were intellectually honest.

    I'm proud of the hunter for not reacting. I would be having a very very hard time not doing something I would regret later for a number of reasons. Making a Martyr for the wackos would be one of them.

    At last! A perfect use for those 12 gauge "flamethrower" Dragon's Fire shells. Nylon parasails and fire don't get along well.

    I have a feeling these idiots will end up like many geese do each year when they try and ruin the right hunter's day....:D

    In most State's we have laws against this kind of thing and they would be arrested for these kind of action's. Goes to show what kind of President we have now being he came from this State and helped make their laws. IL has plenty of stupid laws to deal with and I will not spend a dime in that State period and no I have never been there but took this stance a long time ago because of their laws.

    I was waiting for the hunter to introduce the pilot to the butt end of a Browning on one of those fly byes.

    Sometimes I wonder if these groups don't actually work for land developers.

    Don't confuse tree huggers with anti hunting idgits. I'm a tree hugger but not an anti-hunting idgit. Two different things.

    If you are a hunter, you ARE a conservationist. So we are all treehuggers.

    These folks are something else entirely. They are criminals. Terrorist nut jobs that live free from fear of prosecution because they are PC.

    In Texas, we have a hunter harassment law. I'd be shooting at chutes, myself.

    There's a model airplane club next to some land where I used to dove hunt. One of them was buzzing me one day when I stood up and swung on the airplane. He took the hint. ROFL!

    The Future Farmers of America?:D

    Hell, I hope 4H and the Campfire Girls revoke his license as well, goddammit!

    I don't know about other states, but I don't think anyone here has ever been convicted of anything for "peppering" someone who walks (or flies) in front of hunters who are actively hunting, with their legal quarry there.

    WRT less lethal: I doubt it matters if you hit the chute with rocksalt or steel shot. A couple hits and the thing is going down. Don't shoot anything you don't want to shoot, even with rocksalt.

    I don't think there is licensing of ultralights.

    Guy should be ashamed of himself anyway. Untreated gasoline exhaust, and oh what a carbon footprint.:D

    I guess if your state *does* have a hunter harassment law, then you'd be privileged to use *reasonable* force to effectuate the citizen's arrest for the crime in progress. Since this guy you don't know can easily make his escape in his little chute-plane, seems to me it'd be reasonable to tackle him as he made a low sweep or otherwise try to bring him down (unharmed of course, or with only minor brusing). I would then cuff him, duct tape his mouth shut and put him in the pickup truck, finish my hunt (while he watched from the pickup), and THEN take him in to the sheriff/ magistrate for booking. Wonder what the cheering section would have done if he had done THAT? :evil:

    Does Illinois have, or do they not, a hunter harassment law?

    Hee hee. :)

    Got to practice with that lasso...

    Hippie team roping!

    I'd never actually been to a rodeo until a few weeks ago. It was kinda fun. Felt a little bit sorry for the calves, though, getting thrown on the ground and tied up like that, not even knowing what the hell was going on...

    Team-roping hippies would make it even more fun, since nobody would feel sorry for them...:D
