First off...I think the basic rule of hunting is..."know exactly what you are shooting at."
Mr. Billquist said he kept calling his wife’s phone until Mr. Jadlowski answered it and told him where to meet him. When Mr. Billquist found his wife less than 100 yards from the back of their house, she was unresponsive, he said.
Thomas B. Jadlowski, believed he saw a deer in a field and fired a single-shot pistol.

ALTAMONT, N.Y., Nov. 26— There are so many whitetail deer in the Altamont Orchards here that a wildlife official estimated that 90 percent of the trees in a 180-acre plot had been chewed by the animals - even after the farmer shot 40 of them.
The problem at the orchard is increasingly common across New York, according to Nate Tripp, a state wildlife expert. ''Deer have been known to do $10,000-$12,000 worth of damage in one season, to wipe out a whole planting,'' he said.edit on 11-26-2017 by worldstarcountry because: (no reason given)
I haven't checked NY game laws but I doubt deer can be shot as pests damaging crops.
The investigation showed that Jadlowski reported the shooting at 5:24 p.m., which was 40 minutes after sunset. It is a violation of state hunting laws to hunt deer after sunset, sheriff's officials said.
Jamie Billquist said that his wife was on the property of their next-door neighbor when she was shot. He said that Jadlowski didn't have permission to be hunting on the neighbor's property.
I said nothing about his RIGHT to carry-what is the point of having a loaded pistol with you unless you think it is cool or NEED protection?
If you are concerned with protecting your property from deer, I suggest investing in a fence,

If those are the actual houses involved, It doesn't look like much more than 100 yards is possible. But of course I could be wrong.
200 yard handgun..I'm thinking something like a Remington XP100.
supposedly the round went straight through her.

Black powder pistol?
Was that in the police report or did you get it from some other source?
