Question about hunting near a camp and how the safety zone impacts hunting near a camp.

I recently acquired permission to hunt waterfowl along the Allegheny River. The owner has a "camp" on this site. There are no other structures within the 150 yard safety zone. (or even close for that matter)

The camp consists of a camper and a small open picnic pavilion.

With permission from the owner...is it illegal to hunt waterfowl near this "camp" if it is within the 150 yard limit?

If you have permission from the owner, you could hunt while standing on the roof of his camper if you wanted. However, just to be on the safe side, I would get the safety zone permission in writing, and keep it with you in case of a WCO check.

Yep...with permission you could use the camper as a blind...the only time the safety zone takes effect is when you do not have permission to hunt inside of the area...

Cool...

See this is what upsets me. I called the PGC NW Office last night and asked this very question. All I got for an answer was "is the building habitable?"

I said it was a camp...etc. "Is the building habitable?"

I dont know why I even bother calling up there with any questions. I always get stupid answers that are typically misleading or incorrect.

Thanks for the replies guys.
