The next potential target for hunters in one Colorado town might be flying above the birds.

Town leaders in Deer Trail are considering an ordinance that would create aerial drone hunting licenses and offer bounties to anyone who shoots one down.

They acknowledge they've never seen a drone on the Eastern Plains but want to make a statement that using unmanned surveillance planes to spy on Americans is wrong. They say the ordinance is mostly symbolic and recognize it's against the law to destroy federal property.

According to KMGH-TV, the licenses would cost $25 a year and offer a $100 reward to anyone who provides identifiable pieces of a drone.
