Archery setback from houses, livestock structures?

6 posts in this topic

I know its 500 feet for guns but I haven't seen anything for bows? Is it considered the same or is there any? I can't find anything in the regs?

I'm asking because I noted a sweet bow setup that would be probably be about 300-400 feet into the thick woods from our neighbor and our cabins.

Check with your township and county Sheriffs office.

There might be some specific local ordinances.

Its mroe about local ordinance. If there are not local laws then you could shoot off your deck if you didn't mind.

For a metro management hunt, I'm about 40yds from the house and maybe 20ft from the garage.

Thanks guys. I will check but I'm pretty sure there not any local ordinances in our township. We're pretty rural.

I live in Sherburne County, and the Sheriff told me I can sit on my deck and shoot geese flying over my house.

But, I cannot have friends over to do so. They would have to be 500 ft from my house and any other dwellings.

Seeing as I am the owner, the setbacks do not apply to me.

For our local hunt, they set the buffer at 400 ft. I thought that was in accordance with a DNR rule, but I dont see it in the regs. I suspect that would be a reasonable distance though.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.
