    It's a very sticky area the sheriff can turn a part of the county into a firearm closure area / no shot zone on a whim and if you don't check the updated map well.......... then you could have screwed the pooch so to speak instant outlaw!!!
    God I love this state

    A freind of my dads owned a ranch I hunted for about 40 years.
    There was one property with their house on it and another just up the road.

    In the mid 70's the county passed a no shooting law and the border ran between the two properties so I quit hunting the place with their house and only hunted the second place till about ten years ago when they sold it.

    I found out later that the county extended the no shooting area in the late 80's to include the second property and that I had been hunting there illegally for about twenty years.

    I guess none of the neighbours ever complained so I never got in any trouble.

    Up here in Idaho we went the other direction. Last year a law was passed that anyone not otherwise prohibited from possessing a firearm can carry concealed weapons in both unincorporated and incorporated areas. No concealed carry license necessary. Previously you could only CC without a license in unincorporated areas.
