Proposed bill would ban using drones while hunting in Michigan
LANSING, Mich. — A bill introduced in the Michigan Senate would ban the use of any “unmanned aerial vehicle” while hunting.
Specifically, no one would be allowed to “take game using an unmanned aerial vehicle.”
The bill, Senate Bill 55, also prohibits taking game using tranquilizers either shot from a bow or a firearm.
The bill as written would not go into effect unless Senate Bill 54 is passed. SB 54 prohibits interfering with a person who is lawfully taking game.
Both bills have been introduced to committee and must be passed by both houses and signed by the governor to go into effect.
