It is not in there b/c there is no set distance or in a way it is in there in that it is not in there. Only law TPWD has is don't shoot from or across a public right-of-way.

I spoke to a sheriff a couple of years ago and he told me it was either 50 or 100 yards from a structure and that a developed road was considered a structure.

I think common sence will tell you if you should hunt there. It will also tell you if you will get in trouble for it.

I think your sheriff needs to go back to law school.....could a deer stand be determined a developed structure? what about a water tower, or an electric ROW, or a Pipeline, or...or ...or...

A "sendero" is a Spanish word for a dry wash, or Arroyio, not a road!

Firearms and roads in Texas the rule is you cannot fire a firearm from the right-of-way of a public road, or fire across the right-of-way of a public road, or shoot an animal in the right-of-way of a public road!

The dirt roads on private property are not included in this rule! Unless the land owner places a restriction you may fire across the jeep trails (dirt roads) on private property!




Sendero is "path" or "trail"

Are you hunting in texas? Are you hunting private or public lands or what? Different regulations/laws may apply.

If you are hunting public property you may not be aware that most agencys have thier own set of "rules". Not all COE and forestry land have the same regs either so be sure to check the specific rules for that property.

here is a link to the COE regulations for my district. the pdf at the top of the page covers this in more detail.

CoE - wrightpatman lake

here is a exceprt that says you cant hunt within 600' of the road.

"a. Hunting or shooting within 600 feet of homes, developed parks, roads, fishing piers or platforms, farm and ranch yards, outlet structures, emergency spillways, or other areas is prohibited unless otherwise stated or posted."

Most (questionable) of us know and understand the laws/rules that apply to us and our area. You never know what funky rule or law may be in place where you plan to hunt.
Never take the word of any of us on this forum when it comes to laws. Always check for yourself and Always read the printed rules/laws that apply to that piece of property.

Original post said nothing about COE so in general, NO, there is not a distance regulation.
