I had omitted that for the time being. I had found after talking with a dnr ranger from the St. Charles post; there is still some confusion on this point. The law (as he told me he understands it to be) was mainly for hunting of water fowl. As far as carry while pleasure boating/fishing, he was not sure. I will pursue this more when spring gets here and I can get up to the dnr station and follow up on this issue.
