Robots & Hunting
« on: November 03, 2017, 09:39:52 PM »
No matter your position on this topic, I hope it spurs an important discussion related to emerging technologies and the approaching threat to our tradition of hunting, fishing & conservation.

Interesting.

The next 5-10 years will see some of the most innovative and evolutionary disruptions we have seen thus far in our industry. There will be more technical connections, more business automation, and more significant impacts directly affecting the “business of hunting” than ever before.

It's an interesting article but I'm not worried too much about high tech coming full steam into the hunting world. For crying out loud, it took 10 years for lighted nocks to be accepted. WA will certainly take regulatory steps to keep drones and robots out of the picture. I'm more concerned about the increasing emphasis on predator introduction and protection than I am about high tech. That's where hunting's demise will take place and it's already well on its way.

The rate of innovation in hunting in the next 10 years will surpass the products and tools we've seen evolve in the last 50 or more in our sport.

Thanks for reading and appreciate your perspective.

When do we get the climate controlled, strength multiplying exo-skeleton that can be powered for the entire hunting season?  I'd like to be able to just pick up a bull and run back up the mountain and then straight home.

It's not 1 single thing or another. It's a combination of all the things in today's world that will affect hunting.
Robots, drones, lighted nocks, trail cams, social media, you name it.
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

I don't doubt that. I just don't think these "innovations" will be accepted by the state wildlife agencies for legal hunting. There is already movement to outlaw the use of drones for hunting and harassing wildlife.

They will be legal somewhere. Maybe not here, but somewhere. Then somewhere else, then somewhere else, then.....

Drones will be easy, Blockchain and AI will be among the biggest threats imo...

It is already happening to a relatively small degree. GPS, laser rangefinders, cellular trail cameras, and satellite imagery are a few examples of technologies which have impacted hunting and didn't exist 30 years ago. When AI gets integrated into these and other tools, it will create a new wave of ethical dilemmas.

I'm actually looking forward to the self driving truck.  It could drop me off at one spot and I could get picked up in another.  It could go park back somewhere that tweekers aren't prowling and mice aren't exploring.

No need for a truck to do it, an autonomous flying drone will eventually be able to air-lift you right to your hunting stand.  :tup:

I agree they should not be used in traditional hunting.....But what about damaged hog areas?

The greatest high country mule deer herd in the west needs our help. Between the advancements in hunting gear, long range weapon systems, increased hunting pressure, selling of big buck coordinates, and the winter of 2016-17, this herd is unsustainable under it’s current management strategy. If the hunting pressure is not reduced by a minimum of 50 percent, this herd will go down under our watch.

:yeah:

In my opinion WDFW used to be pretty old fashioned and didn't allow new technologies, but that's quickly changing with some of the recent changes in regs.  :twocents:

The benefits are easy - sure, I can see the value in using drones just like helicopters for hogs but things like drones are the gateway tech drug to so many other areas but welcome all views.

Would you permit drones to population management for landowners? Easy case to be made for the benefit but how many people would like drones shooting .223 rounds no matter how accurate they are.

I know disliking it wont stop it, but as one that still refuses to get a cell phone I hate all this. Bone you still don't have one either or...?
"When my bow falls, so shall the world. When me heart ceases to pump blood to my body, it will all come crashing down. As a hunter, we are bound by duty, nay, bound by our very soul to this world. When a hunter dies we feel it, we sense it, and the world trembles with sorrow. When I die, so shall the world, from the shock of loosing such a great part of ones soul." Ezekiel, Okeanos Hunter
