    I live in the Wausau area and have never seen anybody open carry, although I don't get out that much. I open carry around my land, roads, etc, but have not had the "courage" to go to a store. Depending on where you go, you will have to watch out for all of the schools. 1000 ft away doesn't give you much room, so you would have to pick your spots carefully. I can't tell you if this is a OC friendly environment, but my guess is that OCn will cause a disturbance.

    Welcome to OCDO-Wisconsin. If your nom-de-'net, 'Phred' is accurate, then a particular welcome to a warrior.

    Phred was Doonesbury's archetypical post war VC. If you're not, fine.

    Dougy can't even use plain english , Let me tell you about Dougy. First only a few people on this forum like him, to everyone else he is a high and mighty elite troll. Because of his years in the navy as an nuke engineer , now retired to his inner sanctum on Washington island. He really does think that he is better, wiser, etc, etc than all of us here. Dougy enjoys rubbing every ones face in his awesomeness.

    I think Phred and I are understanding each other just fine. Thanks for your 'help' G-LOC

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phred_(Doonesbury)
    Phred was a Viet-Cong guerilla (though he proudly referred to himself as a terrorist) who captured B.D.

    Ah yes, Little Dougy, our very own elitist troll.

    Anyway, about the schools, remember, if you go to a store within 1000 of a school, chances are that store is private property, and you should be good to go. Don't quote me though, I'm not 100 percent sure about this.

    Dougy is attempting to insult me while speaking in code again. This normally happens after dougy has consumed too much Isle of Jura & or Bombay Sapphire. Nothing else for an OLD MAN to do on Washington Island, but hit the sauce & troll on the internet.

    Uh, G-LOC, that's not my 'awesomeness' that you're rubbing YOUR face with. I'm just letting it all hang out and you think it's rope - here have some more.

    Phred, I am a VN Era veteran though I can't admit ever being in the Pacific.

    Oh, and I'm not on the Island, having just bought a bottle of Dr. Bombay at the Econo Foods across the street here in Sturgeon Bay.

    I think Doug would be nice to you, if you were nice to him. Anyway back to OCn in Wausau. I don't think too many of the local population is interested or knowledgeable about the issue. OCn will be a new one for the police in this area.

    Sorry, new guy....NO one likes him on this forum but maybe 3-4 people..why because he is a TROLL & you will learn that. If your asking Doug where or where not to OC your asking the wrong guy, he only get's away from Washington Island when he needs to order more high end booze. Green Bay is fine to OC , stay 1000 feet away from school zones....Wausau ? Try it, see what happens...OC is legal not much the cops can do. remember the 1000 foot school zones.

    Hey Glock, although Dougy can be a pain in the A** every now and then and has waaaaaaay too much time on his hands, he has on occasion contributed some pretty interesting reading to the forum,WHEN he uses "Everyday English. You-know, maybe all those years around the Nukes might have fried his brainjust a bit...

    otherwise you are correcthe is our resident

    I was an enlisted, sub qualified nuke.

    Interestingly, I had a Chief Test Engineer that was a 'swimmer' that decided to go nuke while getting a ride home on a sub. He had stories about the Cuban debacle.

    But that's the advantage of being old, having more experience than shavetails can put the lie to.

    Oh come on you guys, give Doug a break.

    He toys with you and gets your goat because you let him (and because Al Johnson doesn't share his.) Grow your skin a little thicker.

    I have never read anything from Doug that indicates that he believes that he is better than anyone. I mean, how could he?

    Afterwards ???? I'm having dinner at the neighborhood grill across the street. Unarmed.

    Back OT...

    I've carried at Gander Mountain and Barnes & Noble in the Wausau area with the only problem of a shotgun I wasn't planning on buying following me out of Gander. These stores aren't in Wausau proper though, but Rothschild and Rib Mountain respectively, close enough that people outside of the Wausau area think of them as Wausau anyway.
    That said, I can't comment on how the Wausau PD feel about things, but I haven't heard any complaints about them in the OC community yet either.

    I have OC'd in Rib Moutain stores like Walmart and Gamestop with no trouble.Rib Mtis managed by the Sheriifs Dept and I have had no trouble OC. I have not OC'd downtown Wausau and would imagine you would at least get the cops called. I would love to OC downtown, but in that case would want support of others instead of being a lone wolf. Lets get a summeropencarry event there!Wausau has a great center square park that would make a great rally area. Its is basiclyin the center of the state for travel. Any support behind this? Also what would it take to get the city to repeal its ordinace that violates preemtion laws? Wausau also has a bike map that lists all the schools. The city square does not appear to be near any school.

    I do want to point out how on this forum/thread someone asks a legit question and then the rest of the thread turns into mostly rubbish and off topic discussion usually by someone who likes to use big words and then abunchof people feed off him.Juststick to the topic please!
