Hippies’ drone shot down by pigeon hunters

| February 18, 2012

Somewhere in South Carolina, local hunters were planning on a day of pigeon hunting when they were thwarted by animal rights activists who threatened to film the activity with their drone aircraft. When the hunt was canceled, the hippies decided to launch their crude aircraft anyway. Then they got upset when pigeon hunters shot down their bird;

“Seconds after it hit the air, numerous shots rang out,” Hindi said in the release. “As an act of revenge for us shutting down the pigeon slaughter, they had shot down our copter.”

He claimed the shooters were “in tree cover” and “fled the scene on small motorized vehicles.”

“It is important to note how dangerous this was, as they were shooting toward and into a well-travelled highway,” Hindi stated in the release. He said someone from SHARK called the Colleton County Sheriff’s Department, which took a report of the incident.

The Colleton County Sheriff’s Department filed a malicious damage to property incident report.

So, just to make sure I got this right, the hippies stopped some hunters from shooting things down from the skies, so they launched their thing that can fly in celebration and they’re upset that it got shot down? Seems to me it was inevitable. If they didn’t want their little toy shot down, they shouldn’t have launched it. I’d be tempted to shoot at it, too.

You can watch the video here. Thanks to Marine_7002 for the link and the laugh.

  1. Jonn: If they didn’t want their little toy shot down, they should have launched it. Typo I hope? “Shouldn’t”?

    Trivial… but!

    I was picturing you on your deck shooting at drones, real or perceived, and got sidetracked?

  2. Maggie Goff says:

    LOL, Pons!

  3. Lucky says:

    What goes up, must come down, hippies being drug users especially aught to know that!

  4. Flagwaver says:

    Awe, their little toy got shot down by someone who isn’t identified. Poor little hippies.

  5. Lee says:

    As a drone owner AND a hunter, I’m laughing my ass off. Only a liberal would not think to fly above the range of the shotgun.

    Hope it was one of the REALLY EXPENSIVE FPV’s and not some cheap tinker toy.

  6. NHSparky says:

    Pigeons? PIGEONS???

    The hippies got all butt hurt over someone shooting air rats? And then got butt hurt worse when their plane went all Iraq air force on them?

    Newsflash hippies…better the plane than you. Now go back to your restaurants and feel oh so smug about yourselves while you fork over $50 for a dinner of squab.

  7. Hondo says:

    Lee: my guess is that they were using a cheap camera and needed to fly low. And I’d also guess none of them had ever served in the military – and thus never even thought about the possibility of drawing ground fire. (smile)

    Too bad it was unmanned. Dumbshits they’re in So. Carolina FFS, what did they expect would happen. Get back to your Bongs shitbirds.
    As a side note I saw this morning that NASCAR is disallowing the appearance of the General Lee at the race in Phoenix, what with it being all offensive and shit. I’m just guessin’ here but Jesse Jackson must have said BOO!

  9. PintoNag says:

    I think the bird hunters showed admirable restraint. Ever read the blogs about hunting from the eco-terrorists? They’re always talking about how hunters ought to be shot themselves. I think the hunters did well just to shoot down the drone.

  10. OWB says:

    Hah! Restricted air space perchance?

  11. streetsweeper says:

    Cost of a days worth of hunting, spendy. Shooting down some loony tune animal rights groups drone? PRICELESS!

    After my week, this is just what I needed! Forkin’ hair heads.

  13. Militant Bibliophile says:

    It gets better: if you read the comments on the original article, they “activists” showed up late, and didn’t get the drone into the air until just as everyone was shutting down. Much of the article seems to come from an interview done with the activists rather than the hunters (whose side seems to come out in the overwhelmingly supportive comments) and what they reported as hunters being frightened off by their big bad drone was really everyone going home at the end of the event. So not only did they lose an expensive piece of equipment for sticking their noses where they don’t belong, they were completely ineffectual into the bargain! As to the shooter(s?), well done! We need more like this to tell nosy busybodies to piss off and leave folk in peace

  14. Militant Bibliophile says:

    *the activists. This is what happens when your hands outrun your brain

  15. jonp says:

    Is it not against the law in every state to obstruct a lawful hunting activity?

  16. Lew Rockwellz says:

    Not to get all conspiratorial … it would not be out of the real of possibility of them running “false flag” type operations to make the hunters appear in a negative light.

    That being said … bwahahahahahahahahahahahaha

  17. J.M. says:

    #9: Eco-terrorists have done alot worse to people over the years then just talking about shooting people. Arson, spiking trees, etc.

    #14: Of course they arrived late. You can’t expect hippies to get up early to stop the hunters. They sleep in, show up to time their arrival with the hunters leaving, and claim victory.

  18. PintoNag says:

    @18 Yes, you are correct. I belonged to a riding association years ago that sponsored endurance rides. An assortment of animal rights activists showed up to protest the ride. The riders got suspicious and went to check the horses (screened from sight by their trailers) and found several activists getting ready to nick the horses’ tendons, to “sore” them (lame them) so they couldn’t participate in the ride.

    Several of the association riders held them until the police came and arrested them.

  19. OneShot says:

    What, it took three shots to take down that whirlybird? Those hunters need to go back to skeet school. What was it my pappy said….watchur ellavasion, wind and site.

    BTW…thanks, I needed a laugh today, and reading about some airhead liberals getting their just desserts was the thing.

  20. MikeyB75 says:

    Let’s start the moon bats frothing at the mouth:

    I heard Cheney was seen in the area….


  21. Hondo says:

    MikeyB75: Nah. If Cheney was in the AO, he’d have shot one or more of the hippies!

  22. They are a bit rough and tumble in Colleton County. They don’t take kindly to hippies or liberal BS. They even let their ghetto folks kill one another quite frequently. It’s just easier that way.

    @ 13, Beat me to it!!
