I covered this topic earlier this year. When I was reading The Seattle Times Sunday August 12, 2007 edition – that newspaper had a Wall Street Journal article titled Internet hunting nipped in bud. This article detailed some of the short history in regards to online hunting efforts. It also covered which states have enacted laws or are in the process of trying to pass laws to ban hunting from your computer. At the time – article stated that in Illinois the bill was waiting for governor’s signature. From my reading today it looks as if Illinois Governor Blagojevich has now signed the anti online hunting bill into law. So it looks like online hunting industry got killed before it even started.
Internet hunting is the practice of hunting via remotely controlled firearms that can be aimed and shot using online webcams
