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.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?
