In my introduction thread I mentioned that I will be creating a service to use my Evo 2 dual to do thermal searches for hunters that cant locate an animal they have shot. Im in the process of drafting a list of specific questions I will conduct over the phone when a person contacts me to enlist my help. When I eventually create a web space for this service such questions will be posted there. This is a living document that is not mature and a work in progress. Please suggest other questions I may ask as it relates to site specific data. I understand I will need to check sectional charts to understand the airspace I may be entering. Also, if you spot any errors in what Ive already written, mention them. Thank you.

I dont know much about the subject but I would research " hunting with the help of a drone".
In some authorities minds looking for a dead or wounded pray is part of the hunting .I have heard of using the help of a drone to be illegal.

Other that hat , if yourself are not a hunter, I dont see much business in it and you risk losing your drone in a cold winter day.
Today I went to look at a piece of land ( I had fun lol) to build a house. When I entered the area I saw major homeless building in there. I backed out and flew my drone. The junk under the drone was invisible because of the canopy of the trees.
You might encounter the same problem.
Sorry if I sound negative but this is my opinion. But I've been wrong many times
