Lawmakers in the Oregon House agree unanimously that drones should not be used for hunting or fishing.
The House voted 59-0 Wednesday to make it illegal for hunters to use unmanned vehicles to track, harass or scout fish and wildlife. The bill goes next to the Senate.
Democratic Rep. Brad Witt of Clatskanie, the bill’s sponsor, says using drones is an affront to the hunting principle of a fair chase.
Proponents also say wildlife populations might dwindle if drones were widely used to scout or kill game.
