Mike Holland, the minister of Energy and Resource Development in the province of New Brunswick, says that you can’t use drones to help you hunt.
This shouldn’t really be a surprise, but apparently this needed to be said.
The New Brunswick Fish and Wildlife Act says you can’t use aircraft for hunting, except as a means of transportation, and a drone is an aircraft.
Obviously, “hunting with drones” means using drones to spot wildlife, not arming drones to kill animals. That is illegal everywhere.
In the United States, some states have banned the use of drones for hunting but it is legal in many states.
