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.

      Ha!  Me too!  My father bought that last winter and was first voyage on ice. First ice on Leech was rough and those side by sides don't absorb all that well. . Still a good time.

      For holiday gift ideas, consider a locally made gift created from trees harvested in Minnesota. Wooden toys, handcrafts and keepsakes are a great green gift option. Wood is a renewable resource that is natural, nontoxic and eco-friendly.   “Wood products are great green gifts for both kids and adults,” said Kristen Bergstrand, DNR utilization and marketing program coordinator. “Uniquely hand-crafted and individually customized wooden gifts are a wonderful option for a person who has everything.” Wooden blocks, rocking chairs or horses, puzzles, rattles, picture frames and artisan bowls or wood crafts are unique items that are often passed down to future generations as family mementos. Thousands of items are made from wood harvested in Minnesota forests. About 30 percent of the state’s wood fiber comes from state forest lands. The Minnesota forest products industry brings $16.1 billion to local economies. The industry creates jobs and brings financial support to small and large manufacturing and retail businesses across the state. Making products from trees often requires less processing and energy than plastic or other products. Wood is also renewable and reusable. Most wood products can be recycled and wood waste can be converted into green energy as biomass. Well-managed forests grow back into a forest after harvesting. And buying wood products also helps the environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that causes global climate change, and store carbon in their wood. Locally made products from trees harvested in Minnesota use less fossil fuel for transportation than imported goods. Visit the DNR wood products webpage to learn more about the benefits of buying and using wood products. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
