Thank God for this! I was getting really tired of having to leave my house to kill things.
Mouse Click Brings Home Thrill of the Hunt
BULVERDE, Tex. -- On a tranquil Central Texas landscape, three fallow deer wandered through live oak and cedar as a rifle barrel poked out of a small shack nearby.
With a metallic click, the Remington, clutched in a motorized steel cradle without a hunter at the trigger, swiveled to track them. The gun's scope showed the cross hairs settle right behind a buck's shoulder and hold steady, a perfect aim that would kill the animal in one clean shot -- if the hunter wanted to fire the gun. More than 1,300 miles away in Indiana, looking at his computer screen, he decided to pass. This hunter wants to bag a blackbuck antelope, and he will wait to click the computer mouse that will send the electronic signal to shoot.
It is called hunting by remote control, the brainchild of Texas entrepreneur John Lockwood, whose Internet business advertises a "real time on-line hunting and shooting experience."
Yeah, I don't see how there could ever be any problems with this...
