on a good day i can walk 200 yards then have to stop and wait 20 minutes for my breath and energy to catch up with me. i went hunting last week i covered 3 miles. in the past whitetail hunting i had to keep myself from covering ground to fast. now it is forced on me.
if i had a drone i figure i would miss more than i would see.
My son uses drones for work and I’ve played with those a bit. The field of view is very wide on a relatively small screen and most consumer stuff doesn’t have any zoom capability. You’re very right in your assessment. The faster you move and the farther you are from the ground, the less you see.
None of us know how we’ll age… you can watch what you eat, exercise, etc. But life happens and much is beyond our control. I’m very fortunate, just turned 76 and I can do nearly everything I want to do. Slower, and not without cost I never bore in younger years. But I plan to do this until I’m dragged out of the woods… (or never found, out there…) Can’t ask for more and I’d never look down at a person using any legal means to keep themselves out in the field. This is so much more than the meat on the table, the guns, the people we hunt with… all of it. It’s important.
