This would be pretty hard to determine depending on wind speed and direction and angle of shot. The law I've read says that the game being shot at can't be within the safety zone even if you are positioned outside of the safety zone (unless you have prior permission)

Sec. 2505. Safety zones.

(b) Penalty.--A violation of this section is a summary offense punishable by a fine of not less than $200 nor more $500. A second or subsequent offense within two calendar years is a summary offense punishable by a fine of not less than $500 nor more than $1,000.
(c) Definition.--As used in this section the term "safety zone" means:
