Summary: As of 2021, about 38 states have laws banning remote control and/or computer-assisted hunting of animals. Some states like Oregon and Missouri implement this ban through administrative regulation. Some laws are more specific than others and ban not only the owning and operating of a shooting range for the purpose of online shooting, but also ban creating such websites. In some states, people may also be fined or given jail time for utilizing a website via the Internet which allows the online shooting of animals.
