Hunting in City Limits?

I'm originally from NC, been hunting there my whole life. But I've never hunted in a residential area, always on the family farm.

Today a friend (who knows I'm a hunter) asked me if I could help him remove some deer from his house. He lives in a residential area in Montgomery County (Ambleside Dr., Potomac, 20854). He showed me some pictures, one of the deer is a MASSIVE 12-14pt buck.. This obviously sparked my interest!

My question: Is it legal to bow hunt in a residential area? If so, is there anything special I have to do?

The only thing I can find is:

"Hunt, trap or shoot wildlife within 150 yards of an occupied building or camp without permission of the owner or occupant. For archery hunters this distance is 100 yards in Harford and Montgomery counties and 50 yards in Carroll and Frederick counties."

Does this imply that I need written permission from all of his neighbors (within 100 yard radius)? Is verbal permission enough since I will not be actually hunting on their land? I know I need written permission from the land owner that I will actually be hunting on.

I can't find anything else that is relevant.

written permission.. never rely on words now a days.

check city limit ordinances also to make sure.

Thanks for all the feedback.

I called the DNR regulations phone number (4102608540) and the woman verified that I can hunt in Montgomery count in residential areas as long as I have the written permission form from all the houses within a 100 yard radius.

She directed me towards the written permission form.

Depending on your age, you may need a hunter safety course to get a license.
Also you aren't in Mayberry anymore. Potomac is one of the riches suburbs in US. In MD rich=liberal.

Unless the neighbors are fed up with deer eating their azaleas, they may well feel their tax dollars should be spent on deer condoms

hahaha.. I'm 29, I don't think I'll need a safety course.

I know what you mean about the approval. He lives in a very rich neighborhood and told me "it may be too much of a hassle" to try to convince 9 of his neighbors (within 100yrds) that they have enough of a problem to exterminate them.

I really wish I could get a shot at that buck, wow that thing was massive!

Check Maryland law about Hunter Safety requirements.
To be exempt you need to have had a Hunting License prior to 1970-Something I believe?

Hunter safety requirements have been around for years.
The critical date is you must have had a license or hunted on private property prior to July 1, 1977
Did you not have a hunter safety course in NC?
