ALBUQUERQUE — New Mexico is in line to become the next state to take aim at the use of drones for hunting big game animals.

Alaska, Colorado and Montana already have outlawed the use of drones in hunting, but some sportsmen groups and animal advocates are pushing to see that regulations are passed in every state to protect the concept of fair chase.

    As a hunter, I drool at the thought of being able to use a flying set of eyeballs to locate game, instead of having to hike through miles and miles of brushy hills and tangled arroyos. But once everyone started doing it, I think the impact on game would just be too devastating, and soon we wouldn't have anything left to hunt.
