  New Hampshire Fish and Game held a public hearing today on rules to keep hunters from using new, potentially unfair technologies.

The rules would prohibit the use of surveillance drones, so-called smart rifles and live-action game cameras—which send images to hunters’ smart phones—to aid in hunting.

Most who turned out opposed drones and smart rifles.

But several people like Jack Baltz of Freedom thought banning the use of live-action game cameras might be going too far.
