Default How close do you hunt to houses?

Ok I hunt in a friends back yard in a ground blind that is not but 200 yards from his pool deck. Is there any law about how far from houses you have to be. I can't find one if there is. I was not sure about Urban Deer Hunting, but this place is loaded with deer. I only shoot a crossbow back there. How many of you hunt close to houses or neighborhoods?

That depends on your state laws, in new york its 500 ft from a dwelling to discharge a firearm.

I have hunted 30 yards from a house in Cobb and 45-50 in Floyd. I have never had any problems. Never with a gun though. I shot two does back to back one morning while a guy was skimming his pool not 60 yards away.He never even knew I was there.

Some places it is 100 yards from a dwelling....others areas it is not a set limit.

With a bow I would think 30 or yards is practical and with a gun a hundred might work but I always would want to know what direction I am shooting and try as all mighty not to shoot toward a house or yard.

I don't hunt in a city or anything but the closest I have ever been to a house and shot a deer is about 50 yards. My closest stand to a house is about 100 yards. I gun hunt there I just use my brain and don't shoot toward the house like a idiot. Deer always come from the opposite direction anyways

On my property I'm 350 yds at the closest point from a residence. There's 3 stands spread out there and all of them are close enough you can hear urban noise from houses but the deer are everywhere. The property is fenced and posted around the residential areas and they all know I gun hunt. Some of the neighbors hunt their property too.

One year on our lease a big oak in a field was loaded with acorns.It was next to a barn and a rundown old place where some people lived.I decided to hunt out of the barn one evening within 20 yards of the prop line.I had deer come in and thought it was a great set up till the chickens came in the barn with me.That thing didn't like me being in there at all.lol


Last year i shot a big doe on land that one of my landscape customers owns .i was probably a hundred yards from thier place and had listened to one of my contractors crews building a house 200 yards away.The deer didn't seem to mind it.i thought back on that hunt while I did the landscaping on the new house this year.

The live deer in my avatar was 50 yards from the cabin, and had I seen it when I took the picture it would have died.

I've found it best to sit by a window and use a pillow across the sill for a rest.

There's not a live deer in your avatar, unless it's hanging with the rest.

Wait... one of the ones with it's feet on the ground is live? Kinky!

Actually, there's a doe in the background about midways of the pic. I've seen the pic blown up before.

To answer the question, I would have no problem hunting very close to a house with any weapon. I would just be super careful in what direction I shot. The closest I've ever actually hunted to a house was about 100 yards with a bow. I could see into the back yard.

This isn't regulated by game laws, if there are restrictions it is as someone stated above a county or city ordinance.

Clarke County passed an ordinance several years ago that makes it almost impossible to hunt legally with a center-fire rifle on tracts smaller than 100 acres.

Last year, I got out of the shower, and while I was drying off, I could see through the shades that there was a buck chaseing does in the field behind the house. So I told him if he would stay there long enough for me to get dressed, I would give him a shot. I had already made a yardage chart with my survey transit so I would know the range to any point in the 80 acre field. I took him at 450 yards.

one of my favorite stories, as relayed by a now ex-girlfriend. she went to visit her brother and sister-in-law in brent ala. she was talking to her sister-in-law in the kitchen, when the sil excused herself and went upstairs. a minute later the ex heard a loud gun blast. a second later the sil came down stairs and called her husband. the ex asked what was going on. the whole time she was talking with the sil, the sil was watching a buck walking through the back yard. when she excused herself, she went upstairs opened the bedroom window and dropped the buck with her .243. calmly came down and called her husband to come get the deer. classic, if she only had a sister!!

I like what I am reading. I thought maybe I was the only one hunting that close to houses. By the way the buck in my avatar pic is a 9pt I killed with my 7 yr old daughter and 3 yr old son in the blind with me in my friends back yard. I only hunt with a crossbow there.

I know deer will frequent areas close to urbanization. But when I'm hunting, I don't even want to be able to see a house.

im like this also. but when im not able to go any place else, its not easy hunting 5 acres with 4 different people(me, my step brother, step dad, and step sister) so i usually let them get the woods and i stay close to the house not having to take a climber in and out and not having to walk far at all lol. on one of our tracts of land here in fairfield county, sc, we have a lot of old home places. one has an old covered porch and during turkey season we walked up there and jumped 2 does out from under the covered porch. there were deer tracks all in there. we're looking to plant a foodplot infront of the home and hunt out of the
2nd story bedroom window. floors were old but stable and stairs were too! can't wait to deer hunt out of it this year!

Closest one I ever shot was about fifteen yards from a house. Have killed several within a hundred yards of a house. Had a decent eight pointer get by me, late one evening, only to turn around and come back by when someone slammed a car door, about sixty yards away. He didn't make it that time.

When I was a kid the best stand on my folks place was the couch in the living room. You could sit there and watch tv and watch out the windows and see persimmon trees and fields. I killed my first deer, first 8 pt and first double all within 80yds of the house. I killed my first 8pt on a rainy day off the front porch wearing a pair of athletic shorts. I saw him walk across the drive and got my rifle and eased out and took him, he actually ran back toward the house and died with in 40 yds of the front door. Easy drag for sure. I like to hike back into the woods and hunt several miles back in now, more for the experience than anything. But the folks front porch is still a solid stand on a rainy day.

i have always hunted close to houses. some of my best stands have been close enough to smell whats on the grill for that night. i have also been known to hunt very close to roads. bow only of course. urban deer can be just as or more tough than big woods bucks.

Cool

red: stand locations
yellow: houses
green: trespassers stand - destroyed. land owner says he thinks trespasser lives in the the closest house there.

the 2 stands on the left were lasered at 125 yards from the house. all the others a bit further. you can kind of see the "line" we use, with the straight across. no stands inside that.

this is not ga, but part of our lease where i hunted back home. shotgun only. state law mandated 100yard from occupied dwelling.

at least 1 nice buck, and several does were taken here every year.

a slight

if you ever have the chance to hunt a corn field while a farmer is cutting, DO IT!!! its a hoot. hunted this field while the combine was running and they run out of there like rats!!! and even if they don't come close enough to get a shot, it is still a fun watch! the deer are not afraid of the equipment. you can just watch them walk along in front, and slowly sidestep the path of the combine.

as the standing crop size is reduced, the start looking for escape routes, then busting out!

I killed a 130" buck a few years ago 150 yards from my house with a 7 mag. This wasn't urban hunting though, I just happened to be hunting close to our house on our place.

For several years I hunted about 25 yds out my grandparents front door and seen plenty of deer and killed a few with a 7mm... Of course there property sits in the middle of a WMA so there is plenty of deer in the little "urban area".. And of course all this hunting ended when my grandmother died and grandfather turned into a ttubhead....

Since then I now hunt about 100 yds from the hood and have even killed a couple in the back yard with my bow.. Got one of those back yard kills on video..
