Shooting down unmanned aircraft may soon be legal in the Colorado town of Deer Trail.
A District Court judge rejected a legal challenge that claimed the petition drive was approved by a biased town clerk.
A vote will take place on April 1 in the town of 500. About 370 of the 500 residents are eligible to vote. Will the April 1 vote be an April Fools joke?
Under the guidelines of the ordinance, any registered drone hunter would be given $100 if he presents "identifiable parts of an unmanned aerial vehicle whose markings and configuration are consistent with those used on any similar craft known to be owned or operated by the United States federal government."
The licenses would cost $25 a year. No word if out-of-state licenses would cost more.
The town of Deer Trail is on I-70 between Denver and Limon.
