"Animal Rights" Activist Claims Drone Shot Down

Remember the "animal rights" wacko who used to hover his paraglider above goose blinds to intimidate hunters and scare away geese? (He was promptly arrestedthere are laws against interfering with a hunt, after all.)

Well, his name is Steve Hindi. He's the president of SHARK (Showing Animals Respect and Kindness)isn't that cuteand he's back in the news. Hindi claims to have launched a remote-controlled, video-equipped spy drone to film a live pigeon shoot. Then, says Hindi, shots rang out and his drone was shot down.

Now, I know what you're thinking: What's the best shot size to take down a spy drone? It's difficult to say given their wide-ranging cost and quality of materials. However, Hindi estimates the value of his drone was only $200-$300—basically a video camera duct-taped to a toy helicopter. In this case I believe my preferred all-around load of 1 1/4 ounces of No. 5 shot would suffice. But aluminum drones may require nickel-plated shot of perhaps BB or larger.

Good shooting! I am thinking the new Winchester Hex shot might work good. Or the Hevi shot coyote loads in a 3 1/2 10 gauge. Hopefully more of these will be deployed so we can build some usable data.

I would have shot it down too! Would look nice hanging on my trophy wall!

Maybe that's what should have happened to the paraglider
