I have had town police stop and talk to me while I have been shooting in the back yard. not for shooting where I should not but ask questions about getting setup/into archery/bowhunting etc. most of them are really surprised/impressed by how well I shoot at 30-40 yards. most of them really have no clue as to what laws a person might be breaking. but it is illegal to shoot within 182 meters of other dwellings without permission. I know of at least 2 backyard archers who are both shooting within 800 meters of not 1, not 2 but 3 schools.
