I have been thinking along similar lines, have a drone that you could launch, programmed to follow over head at xx feet and have a receiver in your pocket/boat that keeps it locked in.

If it's following you it should be a pretty easy shot. I expect birdshot would probably do the trick.

Autonomous drones? I'm sure it's only a glitch

Needs obstacle avoidance, ip68 rather than ip67 waterproof standard, bullseye target for Andy's enjoyment, etc. These things are rapidly getting better, easier and cheaper.

Gorefest anyone?

I bought a kickstarter project that advertised roughly the same thing. Pocket drone. It sucked. I sold it at a big loss.

IN a couple years when the kinks are worked out I will try again.
