Description

Notice: Rulemaking for this proposal was discontinued at July Commission meeting.

With increased use of trail cameras and other technology for hunting, considerations of fair chase, ethics, and sportsmanship have arisen, particularly related to use of electronic communication to aid hunters to locate big game animals. The purpose of this rulemaking is to consider restrictions on the use of trail cameras and similar unmanned devices, and restrictions on use of electronic two-way communication (voice/text/video/ images/data, via phone, radio, or other transmitting device) as an aid to hunting big game animals.
