Internet Hunting

Ah, from my home state:

Hunters soon may be able to sit at their computers and blast away at animals on a Texas ranch via the Internet, a prospect that has state wildlife officials up in arms.


Underwood, an estimator for a San Antonio, Texas auto body shop, has invested $10,000 to build a platform for a rifle and camera that can be remotely aimed on his 330-acre (133-hectare) southwest Texas ranch by anyone on the Internet anywhere in the world.

They say, among other things, that it would be a boon for handicapped hunters, who would like to blow away animals, but have a hard time getting into a deer blind, what with their wheelchairs and all.

Remote hunting strikes me as a particularly bad idea, though perhaps it is the way of the future. I just hope somebody doesn't get the bright idea to combine such a system with one of these.
