I don't know of any state except Texas that allow shooting from a vehicle unless disable. Most states don't allow for a round in the chamber and being inside a vehicle either. Also leaning a rifle or shotgun against a vehicle with a round in the chamber is illegal too. I know of one person that got a transmission while hunting in Colo. He was a local too. At lease he didn't have to use his tag.
Well I'll be ! I've never had a problem but have rarely shot from side of road. A game Warden told me years ago to just get off the road .The Wyoming regulation says if there is a right-of-way fence on a public road you have to be on the non-road side of the fence (across the fence from the road) to legally shoot, if there is no ROW fence then you have to be at least 30 feet off the driving surface of a public road to legally shoot.
You can not legally walk out to the right-of-way fence and use a fence post to rest your rifle on to shoot, you have to be over the right-of-way fence
I also live in Cody. The Outfitters Association has a big pull in the state. Example. No non res.in wilderness areas. It's Federal/public land. Not state land. Why does the state have any say in it ? Hmmm? It has been fought in court. Does a resident have a better chance a not being attacked be a griz ? Or better yet with an outfitter ? All about the money for the state $$$. The areas for deer , elk and lope, so micro managed. One side of the road the season is a month different. Different rules , does, bucks, dates, etc.. you constantly have to think and check of you are legal. More revenue for fines. Non residents have to buy a point every other year or lose there points. What BS. AZ., Ut., and Nv. did away with that. One year residency requirement. If you move here, you have to pay another year non res. fees before you can apply as a resident. That only applys to F&G. Everything else in state is 6 mon. $$$. I'm not concerned with 30 ft. after 38 years. I could go on but I'm ready for bed . Sleep well all.I do find it interesting that a regulation regarding the use of Specialized Hunting Technologies and Equipment
b) …real-time video photography equipment…(think WiFi or cellular technology) to transmit images or video for remote viewing….
d) No person shall sell or barter any geographic location information for any big game animal, trophy game animal or wild bison to aid in the taking of any big game animal, trophy game animal or wild bison.
I wonder if )b and d) are intended to discourage outfitters from sending out “watchers” into the field to “camp on” an exceptional trophy for weeks then call a hunter to come shoot it and including the cost of the “location services” of the “watchers” in the fees that are charged. I’m thinking of the “Spyder Bull” elk from a few years back as an example.
In my experience the G&F wardens in WY have pretty set opinions of what the Wardens Association members feel are “ethical” and “fair chase” and have historically challenged/lobbied against statute changes that they feel are/could be “unethical”.
I imagine that most hunters won’t agree on what is ethical or deemed fair chase. Then throw non-hunters opinions into the discussion as well.
Not meant as a thread hijack, btw.

That is simply not true. Minimum distance is 25 yards from the road and you have to be at least 20 feet aboveThe law in Pa allows for shooting from a road you are walking along, or even hunting from, provided you dont shoot across it. In other words you can shoot in the direction away from the road you are walking or hunting from.
You can also shoot across any road, even an interstate road, provided you are well above the vehicle traffic.
