Are Drones Patrolling The ICW?

In past couple of weeks I've had 4 people tell me they have seen drones flying between Daytona and right below.NSB, Edgewater area.

The latest being this afternoon at the marina.

I haven't seen anything.

Can this be true?

Just because you're not paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't watching...

I'll save the government a ton of $$$$

If you really care that much about what I'm doing, park the SOB and get on the boat!

(Psst- Hope they don't embarrass easily)

The drones are from Re-Max - they are looking for you.

Much more efficient than hot air balloons.

Something I've been wondering...

Are Drones TRAP? Or SKEET?

They never seem to be close enough to use a shot gun.

When you see one, just smile, wave and look innocent.

When is drone season?

Can you only use a long bow , crossbow or is my Mini14 or the big 10Ga Goose gun OK?

Do the drones go to a taxidermist for mounting , or can we glue em back together and have our own fun with them?

Since they have been labeled such ignorant pests by Americans everywhere It's open season everyday.

Use any weapon at your disposal.

It will be very interesting to watch the proceedings when the first one is shot down. Hopefully it won't be long and will create a huge backlash against this latest tool of the growing American police state.

And to think that just a few years ago Americans thought that Communism was the biggest threat to our liberties.

The kids are eventually (if they haven't already) going to figure out how to put a heat seeking or laser guided warhead on model rockets. I can't wait to see that!
