A high tech, on-line, real life, killing platform creeps out Georgians-

A weird and disgusting array of cameras and shotguns linked to the Internet was discovered in Georgia. Before the government got around to checking it, the apparatus had been taken down — disappeared — but a photo of it remains.

Only in Georgia: Internet-controlled shotguns linked to web cams on food plot. The Outsider blog in the Augusta Chronicle. By Rob Pavey.

6 Responses to Shotguns put up in Georgia backwoods so poachers can poach on-line

    TexASS has had that for years on there game farms! Saying it was for handicapped hunters!

  2. ProWolf in WY says:

    I remember when those were on the internet and how happy I was it was made illegal. I remember the reasoning was for disabled hunters.

  3. Christopher Harbin says:

    When you look up “slob hunter” in the dictionary, there will be a picture of this set up.

    The feral cyber-hog is now loose here in the Cyber-West for all to see. Now some of our finer technically oriented Western Rubythroated Wahoos , having seen this rudimentary but ruthlessly efficient setup , will want one of these rigs. Boot up, log on , lock and load. If they can do this in Georgia, we can do it better. It’s too good for just feral hogs in the South.

    Can web-accessed barstool wolf hunts be coming to Wyoming, Montana , and Idaho soon ? This could be Playstation , Wii , or Nintendo for the wolfbashers. SSS is so 20th century…this is a video game for real western rugged individualists, with real results…

    I fear the genie is out of the bottle.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
