    Yeah, a couple of days ago was sitting on verandah looking over our private scenery & enjoying a beer when I heard the whiring of a dastardly thing down our creek. I jumped in 4 by 4 in persuit of it & owner & it took off in opposite direction after I rounded the corner. Apparently checking out "Kerbside cleanup" without anyone being seen. We live in a semi rural backdrop. where 5 acres is the smallest plot & we are in a no-through road. What next? Think "I'll go and eat some worms".
    Cheers

    I suppose since a drone can be used for finding things in hidden places talking about them is germane to this thread.
    Some may know that I live in a very rural area The nearest resident neighbor is about 1/2 to 3/4 mile away as the crow flies. but there is a reasonably large ranch adjacent to my property. Reasonably large as the guy owns several 1000 acres but the section near me is only about 4 to 600 acres. He has a small helicopter that I have seen him flying over his place from time to time checking on his cattle I don't think much about it as he has never drifted over the fence line there is really no reason to as he can see quite far from high up. But recently I noticed a drone flying over so I called him to make sure it was him flying it as we have several city hunters come out from time to time and in the fall he moves his cattle to another section of his ranch for the hunter leases he lets out. But that in my mind does not entitle the city guys to play with their drones over my property. I have about 1/2 a mile of shared fence line with the rancher.
    Anyway he said he had recently gotten his certificate from the FAA as none line of sight drone pilot or what ever they call themselves. Meaning he can sit at his home about 5 miles away and watch his drone and would I please not shoot his several $1000.00's drone out of the sky. I told him fly it over some time and hover it near enough that I can recognize it's shape color and identifying numbers that way I will know who it belongs to because all others that cross the fence line becomes skeet practice. And he may want to educate his city hunters of the fact.

    And the owner gets a thrill out of the approaching projectile or shot pattern. My phone can do but 1/12 of its supposed 12 day standby time; not a candidate for any apps or accessories!

    Every morning when I wake up the first thing I do is put my phone on charge that way by the time I'm finished with my breakfast and have fed all of the animals it is fully charged and as long as Bob doesn't call me while he is bored to tears while driving or loading his truck ," He uses a wireless head set by the way", my phone should last all day. If he calls it will probably go dead THANKFULLY about half way through his conversation. Since I don't have a head set I just put mine on speaker and toss it on the work bench while trying to continue working I can only guess what it sounds like on the other end with my hammering or a machine running but I don't care to talk on the phone for very long anyway.

    OK, I'll try to remember that. My phone will cut off before yours goes dead!

    Being attached with some regulation to our FAA, shooting even just AT one is a federal offense, as are most any airborne device.

    This actually becomes a grey area when encountering a UAS over your own rural property. In TX and OK. Laws have been passed that no UAS may be flown over any animal feeding area excepting the land owner flying over his own animals to include in some cases wildlife and game animals.
    Federal aviation air space does not extend all the way to the ground. the elevation above ground surface varies by region and in some cases topology. Again though a plane could not be shot out of the sky simply because it was flying within a a few feet of the ground. Other statutes would have to come into play such as the Castle doctrine which has as many gray areas as there are shadows cast in the Sistine Chapel at noon
