The latest NB DNR website shows the legal distance for shotguns (small shot sizes) at 100m. I believe this is a new change from the 200m in past years.

I feel we could negatively affect the public opinion towards hunting if we do not use some judgment on how close we are shooting to houses. If I start shooting at 7am on a Saturday morning 105 meters from someones house there is a good chance they will be upset and calling the DNR/police.

I hope we all use some common sense and courtesy when deciding how close to houses we set up. I know if I am going to be under the 200 meters, I will be giving the home owners a little "heads-up" on what they can expect in the next few days.

What do the rest of you think about this?

Called them up this morning.

It's a typo!
I checked the actual regulations booklet for this year and it is 200 meters as usual. I could see some people getting into a mess due to this. The website has a disclaimer (that no one reads) that says it is not responsible for the accuracy and/or completeness of the information posted on the DNR website.

I better clarify this with everyone I know because there was a lot of interest in this "new rule change".
