    The Proposed Law thread got me thinking. What should be the minimum distance between hunting parties. Should it be different on private as compared to public. How about when the hunting parties are on different land owners? How about when one party is on private & one is on public?

    On most dnr properties it is 200 yards. The purpose being to prevent injury. Believe me though even at 200 yards a #2 steel pellet strike stings.

    I also agree on 200 yds.
