Deer Trail will hold election on drone hunting

DEER TRAIL, Colo. - A Colorado town considering issuing hunting permits for drone aircraft has been given the go-ahead for a special election on the matter.
A judge on Tuesday rejected a legal challenge that claimed the petition drive was approved by a biased town clerk.
According to KMGH-TV ( ), the election is expected to be held sometime next year.
Supporters of Deer Trail's proposal say it would make the town of 500 people a national attraction for gun enthusiasts and people skeptical of government surveillance.
The proposal has drawn a stern warning from the Federal Aviation Administration, which says shooting at unmanned aircraft is a crime.
