I had a coworker tell me yesterday, that if he goes to a particular location to hunt, and there are too many cars parked there, he won't even bother to hunt (Danger factor)
That's probably true of any area, but not because of ricochet fears. More likely to be shot straight off by an idiot with buck fever, or because noisy hunters have run the deer off for miles. In our woods there is very little chance of ricochet because the timber soaks up any rounds, or the rocks destroy them. Lead splatters against granite.
