Montgomery Co. Neighborhood Wants to Change Hunting Laws
A Montgomery County neighborhood wants hunting laws to change. Residents say the safety zone that surrounds their subdivision isn't large enough, and hunters are firing guns too close to their property.
Just off Highway 231, where the city and county line meet, sits a handful of homes. Surrounding those houses are hunting clubs.
Neighbors say the area in between is too small, and it's causing safety concerns.
Lt. Walls says he thinks 100 yards from a dwelling or home is more than safe, and says there are no plans of extending it. He says that's something the legislature would have to change.
With bow hunting season underway, if you feel a hunter is too close to your property or is being unsafe, please call the Game Watch toll free at 1-800-272-4263.
