    Many states have laws such as 300' , that does not apply to the homeowner I could shoot out my kitchen window in GA or NH if I wanted to, it applies to someone hunting on an adjoining property. I ask because I have a neighbor who has put a stand about 100yds from my house that he intends to gun hunt out of.

    We dont need regulation to solve this issue. Pile some logs up on your side of the fence and cut firewood with the stihl when he hunts. Fwiw, i personally think 100 yards is plenty far.

    I'd rather have someone 300' shooting away from my house than someone 600' shooting towards my house.

    As long as he’s not shooting toward your house ,I would consider it none of my business

    Yes and that is the legal requirement in most states otherwise some knuckle head (actually a few states have 500' requirement) is liable to climb a tree 50' from your house just over the lot line and cut loose with. 742 30-06 a day break..

    True but a big buck runs by do you really think the avg jacked up nimrod is gonna pay attention to a house location. All he is gonna see is a big rack his eyes are gonna glaze over and he is gonna start shooting.

    The last thing I want my wife to hear after working s 6 to 6 is some idiot blasting away at daylight..

    All I would like is for him to move a 100yds or so further into his property , like I said before I can see his blind out my kitchen window.

    Why would he buy property ,and not be able to use it ,his land it should be his option .Thats like living in a subdivision, or town. I’ve lived in the country all my life, always shot and done what I want ,on my property, when I took a notion, no problems. Maybe in other places country living is different, I guess I’ve been in the holler to long, or just outlived my time, I don’t understand ,the problem ,if it’s noise maybe some ear plugs would help.

    Seriously, stack a wood pile on your property close enough to the blind that he cant shoot your house. ALWAYS look for a a solution other than govt regulation.

    100 yards or 500 yards, a high power rifle is gonna rattle. Just let the man hunt

    Sorry Ojibwa but I find this post hilarious and I don’t think it was necessarily intended to be.

    If I named a deer I would get super pissed if someone else hunted my deer.
