No, that's the way it was explained to me as well. I sat next to an old timer who was parked on a guard rail. 270 in hand, he was waiting near the road to shoot, feet in the weeds. His truck was across the street, down a bit. Perfectly legal and we got checked by a WCO. My gun was unloaded, i was walking the road back after a long push around a mountain top. That's not how the law reads though. It reads like you have to be 25 yards off the road, not 25 after exiting the vehicle. They want you to be able to shoot the buck you jump on the way in, but not the one you saw from the road and got out and shoot. Most of these laws are set up with deer hunters in mind, not a guy who's got a decoy spread. In all likelihood., you have 2 WCO's in your neckkk of the woods. Call up, see who they are and ask. They're the only two guys who's opinion matter.
