    I am looking for the laws that allow a disabled hunter to have a loaded and uncased gun in a car. the only thing I can find is the application permit on the DNR website but it dosen't get into specefics of what is and is not allowed.

    I think this may be what you're looking for.


    29.193 Approvals for disabled persons.

    That is basicley what I had already seen. I was wondering about the specifics of what is allowed when hunting from a vehicle such as when you are allowed to have the gun out of the case and loaded.

    2. A Class A permit authorizes the holder to shoot or hunt

    from a stationary vehicle, to fish or troll as authorized under sub.

    (1m) (b) and to hunt certain game with a crossbow as authorized

    under ss. 29.164 (2) (b), 29.171 (2) and 29.216 (2).

    But it dosent really matter to me because I thought that 29.171 (4)(A)(3)allowed the same privlages but that only seems to be about crossbows which if I wanted to apply I could probley get the permit, but agen, my intrest was more in being able to have a loaded gun in a vehicle.

    Here is a link to the DNR PDF file for disabled hunters, http://dnr.wi.gov/org/land/wildlife/...disability.pdf

    it explains the different classes of disability and the privelages to can use, I think disabled people can only huny from a stationary vehicle.

    I know it says shot or hunt from a stationary vehicle (bold in my previous post) But what about if you move from one spot to another do you have to unload, case up, move the vehicle(even if only 10 feet), park, uncase and load or can you just move the vehicle. I am sure I know the answer but am looking a law that specificly says you can't drivewith the gun uncased and loaded. If it is not prohibited by law than it is legal,right? BasicleyI was originaly lookingfor loopholes but I also thought that 29.171 (4)(A)(3) and 29.193 were for the same permits, but they are not so it dosen't really make much diffrence to me at the moment anyway.

    I believe that "stationary" is statutory....haha



    Wisconsin Stat. § 167.31 (Transportation in a motor vehicle.)

    [SNIP]
    (c) Subsection (2) (b) and (c) does not apply to the holder of
    a Class A or Class B permit under s. 29.193 (2) who is hunting
    from a stationary vehicle.
    (cg) A holder of a Class A or Class B permit under s. 29.193
    (2) who is hunting from a stationary vehicle may load and dis-
    charge a firearm or shoot a bolt or an arrow within 50 feet of the
    center of a roadway if all of the following apply:
    1. The roadway is part of a county highway, a town highway
    or any other highway that is not part of a street or of a state trunk
    or federal highway.
    2. The vehicle is located off the roadway and is not in viola-
    tion of any prohibition or restriction that applies to the parking,
    stopping or standing of the vehicle under ss. 346.51 to 346.55 or
    under a regulation enacted under s. 349.06 or 349.13.
    3. The holder of the permit is not hunting game to fill the tag
    of another person.
    4. The holder of the permit has obtained permission from any
    person who is the owner or lessee of private property across or on
    to which the holder of the permit intends to discharge a firearm or
    shoot a bolt or an arrow.
    5. The vehicle bears special registration plates issued under
    s. 341.14 (1), (1a), (1e), (1m) or (1r) or displays a sign that is at
    least 11 inches square on which is conspicuously written “dis-
    abled hunter”.
    6. The holder of the permit discharges the firearm or shoots
    the bolt or arrow away from and not across or parallel to the road-
    way.
    (cm) For purposes of pars. (c) and (cg), the exemption from
    sub. (2) (b) under these paragraphs only applies to the firearm,
    bow or crossbow being used for hunting by the holder of the
    Class A or Class B permit under s. 29.193 (2).
    (co) For purposes of par. (cg), a person may stop a vehicle off
    the roadway on the left side of the highway.

    Why do you find enjoyment in me being unable to find a loophole in the law that would allow a person to legaly have a loaded, uncased firearm in a vehicle?

    You MUST Unload and encase in order to move the vehicle.

    For boats,Unloaded and encased when the motor is running.

    I found the alliteration amusing and that it almost rhymes. I think that the "haha" was impersonal; not speaking for another.

    For boats, guns only have to be unloaded if the motor is running and bows need to be unstrong or cased if the motor is running unless used for bow fishing.

    Sorry, I was laughing at my own alliteration, not at your inability to find a loophole.:P
