Maybe they weren't drones.....
the only things way out there in the sticks are cows, farmland, fracking sites, prisons, and a bunch of secessionist-wannabe clod hoppers that would likely shoot at the drones during daylight hours. I'd speculate that not too many players in the region would be able to finance an operation of this size, and want to keep it so secret. my guess is big oil, mostly foreign owned now, and those drones are doing GPS based topographical land surveys for future drilling sites or pipelines. keeping it clandestine will reduce future land speculation.
That makes a lot of sense. There's nothing in Western Nebraska and Eastern CO except for lizards and tumbleweeds
