    Default Vermont-any laws against shooting on private property?

    Assuming you aren't on top of your neighbor, are there any laws to worry about?

    In NH those restrictions are handled by the towns. Check with the local Town Clerk to be on the safe side.

    Vermont has laws? LOL just kidding. I would find it hard to believe that if I can shoot on my own property in MA (following all laws like 500' from neighbors, no shooting over the road, etc) then a Constitution state like Vermont would ban it. I however am not a lawyer so check it out first.

    Vermont has neighbors?

    I'm sure that there's some restriction against shooting near occupied buildings and state highways, but you'd be best off checking with your local PD or going through VT state laws.

    Yes there are. Check the local town clerk in the town you are thinking about. The
    restrictions are usually a certain defined distance from the town boundaries. Any
    shooting on private property done without the permission of the owner is also
    frowned on. Other than that, it's between you and your neighbors for the most
    part unless you are in one of the metropolitan centers like Burlington, Barre, Montpelier,
    Rutland, Bennington, etc. There the restrictions may be more significant. If it is
    state property you may find carrying restrictions as well as shooting restrictions
    (state parks, forests, etc.).
