A hunter just shot a deer right outside our subdivision. It is National Forest but it was only about 40 feet from our house. Scared the crap out of both of us. We are pro-hunting but this was SO close to KZ. Is that hunter legal? He is gutting out the deer as I write so a quick answer would be appreciated. Yikes!

I have no idea but I would definitely call Park Co Sheriff to inquire and quick!

We called CPW but had to leave a message for a call back... busy season and all.

Take one of your awesome photos of him gutting the animal and get a license plate number in case you can't reach someone.

Here's a couple of sections from the big game hunting regulations on illegal activities

Shoot from or across a public road with a re- arm, bow or crossbow. People ring a bow, ri e, handgun or shotgun with a single slug must be at least 50 feet from the centerline of the road

Hunt carelessly or discharge a rearm or release an arrow disregarding human life or property.

Nothing about private property lines?

I asked Sheriff and Wildlife about a neighbor hunting on the adjacent lot to mine. I was concerned because their lot is only 200 feet wide. ANSWER: If they're shooting safely, no violation. WHAT IS SAFELY? slugs do not leave the property and threaten other residents or damage buildings or vehicles.

Edit to add: If a slug hits a person, that is definitely a violation of hunter rules :yikes:

I have seen signs in the forest in the past that state that no shooting is permitted within a certain distance of residences. I think it was 50 feet. Even if something is legal, the way it is executed may lack common sense. Unfortunately common sense is not a legal term! Nor is simple consideration. If they were I wouldn't have to close all my windows and turn music or recorded books up uncomfortably loud to block out the sound of my perfectly legal but grossly inconsiderate neighbor who target practices frequently, sometimes with something that sounds like a connon. It causes me and my dog a great deal of anxiety. Having some one shoot a deer so close to my house would be awful. I, too, do not oppose sensible hunting, sensible being the operative word here!

Depends... two potential rules come to mind:
In pike nf you cannot discharge a firearm within 150 yards of a structure (this depends on where the hunter was when firing)

CPW rule : Hunt carelessly or discharge a firearm or release an arrow disregarding human life or property.

I would think the second would include where the bullet arrived vs where it was shot.

Look here for information on shooting in the national forest.
http://wheretoshootcolorado.com/lawinfo
Per site
State Patrol regulations:
"A firearm may not be discharged in the following National Forest areas:

Within 150 yards of a residence, building, campsite, developed recreation site, or occupied area; or
Across or on a Forest Development road or an adjacent body of water, or in any manner or place whereby any person or property is exposed to injury or damage as a result of such discharge; or
Into or within any cave. [36 CFR 261.10 (d)]"

If indeed it was within 150 yards of your house and in the National Forest, it was illegal. Call the State Patrol if you can't get anyone else to respond.

Pictures of kill site, hunter, vehicle, plates and any identifying characteristics would be best. Get picture of all the parties if more than one person involved they should all loose their licenses and forfeit the meat.

Bad, ignorant or plain stupid hunters shouldn't be tolerated.

And yes, I do hunt.

The location of the kill, as in where the animal died, is likely not the same place where the hunter discharged the firearm. Perhaps you saw the hunter discharge his rifle and you know where that location was, if not, the case against him could be difficult to prove.
