Look to DNR laws. I don't see anything on distance from dwellings, though I'm reasonably certain it exists. Keep looking! You must be 50 yards from a public road.ridepate said:I want to be compliant in my hunting endevors. I'm afraid i'm too close to some houses. What or where can I find the distance laws for Jackson county???? I've looked and cannot find them.
