Last few seasons I have had 2 old men creeping up and down my road during deer season, clearly hunting from a truck. When I tried to catch them they took off, everyone that sees them says they have a license to. Is there a hunting license that gives you permission to shoot from a truck?

disabled hunters can get a permit to hunt from a truck...not sure how it addresses cruising up and down the roads....

The disabled permit gives them permission to use their vehicle as a blind. Not to road hunt out of it.

Had a friends uncle that wouldn't listen to anyone about it a few years ago. He either didn't read the rules with the permit/ didn't listen to people when they told him road hunting wasn't permitted, or just didn't care. Well he found out the truth when he got busted for it.

You are not permitted to use the vehicle to locate game. When moving from spot to spot firearm must be unloaded. The GC gives permit holders a list of regulations and also game lands and state forests with roads they can travel

Good question. A couple years ago I saw and then had an oportunity to speak with a disabled hunter who was hunting from his car. The guy was clearly disabled and I won't go into detail. But I could not help wondering how he would gut and load the animal into his truck. I suppose he would call someon on his cell for help. It was sad but I admired his drive to still get out there and do what he could.

A permit to hunt from a vehicle isn't a permit to trespass. Road hunting, except in large public property parcels, is clearly going to involve trespassing. My observations are that road hunters, I'm not discussing permit holders at the moment, couldn't care less where they shoot a deer.

I have an older gentleman, 82 years old, who walks with a cane. For the last few seasons he's been hunting an easily accessible part of my land. It's 100 level yards off the road. Last year I let him use my UTV to get to some other spots. I reminded him he doesn't have a permit to hunt from the vehicle so he had to unload his gun whenever he's in the utv. He probably should have a permit as I've watched his physical condition deteriate the last 2 years.
It's a wonderful program. Unfortunately there are always individuals who will abuse the system.

No I mean the dirt road that leads to the cabin. There is private property on both sides so any deer he does shoot at was on someone else's property. The part that really upsets me is if they shoot at a deer and it doesn't drop it's a miss. These guys wound more deer then I care to think about.

What's it matter who's road it is, they're breaking the law.
So you know that they have no permit to hunt from a vehicle, if that is the case then they are breakin the law.

It does not matter if they have a permit or not, you can't drive up and down a road looking for game to shoot. A disabled permit only covers hunting from a stationary vehicle. If you don't believe the rest of us look it up ....Title 34 section 2923.

Ok then, please clarify what your trying to say here. The way it's written , it sounds as though they are only breaking the law if they don't have a permit.

Sounds like somebody is just fishing for an argument to get aomeone fired up over a non-issue. The "your road thing" was completely unneccesary. I call the road out in front of my house "my road" I bet you do too ICAREDOYOU. It means nothing other than that. We all know we don't own the roads...

The OP's question has pretty much been answered. The disabled permit does not allow road hunting from a public highway or on private land.
