    Is there a law that states how far from a house you have to be to hunt and discharge a firearm legally? Just curious because I hunt outside the city limits and have a pond on the edge of my property that holds a few ducks. There is however a house fairly close to it so I was just curious?
  2. just far enough not to wake up grippy old folks.

    PS. boy you better get off here and wish your Momma a happy Birthday

  3. All kidding aside AGFC says 150 yards have a good hunt buddy:wink:
  4. I think as long as you are at least 200 yards from another house outside the city limits and not close to a road you could shoot from your back porch. I may be wrong though make sure with AGFC first.

    GFC pulled that crap about hunting X far away from someones house but it didn't work. You can hunt anywhere you want to on YOUR land or land you rent or lease.

    Now I wouldn 't shoot toward someone's house just out of safetly and respect. If it's yours, shoot it.

    150 yards without permission is what the book says.

    I was laying in the bed one Sunday morning and I heard shooting, then the shot started falling on my house. I grabbed my shotgun and a coat and met him crossing my field....he looked kinda worried when he saw my longjohns was all I had on besides my boots.....and started to appologize. I told him I didn't want an appology, just a promise that I'd never see him again within a mile of my house. He promised!:razz:
