The Alaska Board of Game has unanimously passed a proposal to outlaw the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for hunting purposes.

Based on fairness, the intent of the regulation is to eliminate the advantage UAVs could lend big-game hunters, as only a limited number of animals can be killed in a given season, according to an article by the Anchorage Daily News.

The employment of UAVs would be categorized as an unlawful hunting practice under the proposed regulation, along with the use of poison, bombs, radio communication and other methods.

The Department of Law will review the proposal, which is expected to be law on July 1.
