how many feet do you have to be off the road to shoot a deer

Answer:

Idaho Fish and Game does not have a code or rule that specifically defines the distance you are required to be away from the road before discharging a firearm.  However, Idaho Code 36-1508 (copied and pasted below) just explains that you cannot shoot from or across a public highway.  If you are off the traveled portion of the road and you are not shooting across the road you are fine.
