I always assume there is a wandering bullet probability and I am usually up high enough for a shot to be aimed in the ground. In WNY there is a guy serving time for hitting a school bus with a shotgun slug after his failed attempt to hit a deer with it. I couldn't even imagine trying to take a shot towards any road/civilized area. Where I hunt I grew up in so I know the location of roads, trails, houses, old abandoned camps and everything in between. Even when the hunting spots are miles and miles away from anything. Just be totally certain of any chances of wandering bullets and try making a shot without taking the risk. Good Luck.
