With the improvement of drone thermal imaging technology, thermal imaging drones are continuously used in agriculture, including animal and plant protection, monitoring and expelling the encroachment of wild animals, and hunting of wild boars, coyotes, and large deer.
The use of thermal camera drones for hunting has emerged with the development of drone technology. In the past, hunters used field thermal telescopes to monitor the tracks of wild animals, but with thermal drones, everything has become easier.
Is it legal to use thermal camera drones for hunting?
sure. Thermal camera drones are used for legal hunting. The thermal imager is designed to highlight the thermal fluctuations of objects in complex environments, and the thermal data will be converted into images, which hunters can use to easily view the range and number of groups to help better hunt.
Can I hunt wild boars?
Wild boar, a non-native and invasive species in Texas, USA, competes enormously with native wildlife for survival resources. Every year, millions of dollars in damage are caused by wild boar-dominated crop damage, water contamination, equipment damage, disease spread and livestock injuries.
Wild boars are not considered wild in Texas and can be hunted by any means or method at any time of the year.
Can I hunt coyotes with a thermal imaging drone?
Coyotes are currently the most abundant livestock predators in western North America. According to the National Bureau of Agricultural Statistics, 60% of annual livestock mortality comes from coyotes. Coyotes are omnivores with strong strength and developed bite force. In cities, aggressive behavior often occurs.
Coyotes hunt livestock not just for survival, but for hunting. In the city, there are also frequent incidents of coyotes attacking children, adults, and dogs. Coyotes do not equal wolves, and U.S. government agents routinely photograph, poison, trap and kill approximately 90,000 coyotes each year to protect livestock.
How do thermal camera drones hunt?
Thermal camera drones are often used to provide nighttime imaging for hunters. Thermal imaging cameras can clearly distinguish objects that emit thermal radiation, providing accurate positions.
Autel Robotics' dual thermal imaging drone, EVO II Dual 640t, combines high-end visible light cameras and invisible thermal imaging cameras to provide professional aerial video and still image solutions.
As a thermal drone, EVO II Dual 640t can record thermal video with a resolution of 640 x 512 or 320*256, which is mainly used in industrial inspection, emergency search and rescue and fire rescue, and agricultural applications. The drone can integrate thermal imagery into standard video via a picture-in-picture mode to make it easier to track the location of objects or structures.
The EVO II Dual 640t's 8k resolution lens captures 48MP images, shoots in 4k HDR for professional results, and the long-range drone is also equipped with 1-8x (up to 4x lossless) digital zoom. Therefore, EVO II Dual 640t can be used as a thermal hunting drone to facilitate hunters to hunt.
