We had free run of all the property from townline rd. to National Ave. (Hwy ES) along guthrie road, and back in about a mile or so. We used to take Pheasant, Duck's,Geese, Deer and that is where I ran my traplineall through that area.my inlaws live in town of waukesha near townline and hwy 164. they have a large lot with the backyard going out into woods.
i keep wondering if i could shoot small caliber rifles or even my handgun there, or if i could use my pellet air rifle there for some target or squirrel shooting (squirrel hunting also has regulations, i'm aware of that). how/where would i go about finding out if i'm allowed to use my guns on their property???
also would it be legal to do target shooting at a place like vernon marsh???
But, I am guessing it is all subdivisions now or something else that got all built up??
You couldn't hunt deer with a rifle in Waukesha county, but shooting rifles for target practice was ok, I would just make sure you are far enough from others homes, and your backstop is proper.
In that area, you are real close to Vernon Marsh public hunting grounds, and Frog Alley. So unless they changed drastically, I feel you would be good, check the local ordinances before taking my word for it though. Things tend to change.
