Hunting: Hunter’s actions endanger safety

I assumed we were safe in our own house, now I am not sure that is true. The second day of deer hunting season (at about 6:15 p.m.) a hunter trespassed on our property and shot a deer that was just 50 feet from our house. After shooting the deer, the hunter ran away. When he shot the deer he was shooting in the direction of a road and houses.

Is it safe to hunt in areas where people live?
