2018 NOVA SCOTIA HUNTING & FUR HARVESTING SUMMARY OF REGULATIONS
Deer Hunting Regulations made under Section 113 of the Wildlife Act
Department of Lands and Forestry: Hunting

I can’t find any regulations on where deer hunting is not allowed in relation to towns, cities etc. so don’t assume that you are safe from stray shots from deer hunter rifles because you are close to settled areas. -dp
