proneblocked wrote:State statute...speaks of State parks. County parks would not apply.Real quick, is OC legal at a county managed lake? The reason I ask is because I was out fishing today and came across a couple and their 3 pitbulls fishing on shore, and 2 of the dogs came at me and they weren't freindly. I was facing them both because I know enough not to give a pitbull my backside and as they barked and lunged at meI smacked'em around with my pole and by the time an owner came up, I snagged one of them in the neck with my rig and it took off. After that it got under control.
The woman was very apologetic but her "man" just shrugged it off and they argued to each other about why the dogs weren't tied up.
I cant help but think how this would have been different if I was with my 6yo boy.
Is it legal toOC around the lake?
Should I have complained to the office?
I was wearing my Wisconsin Carry shirt at the timebtw..
HOWEVER, you may still receive hassles from local LEO's if the city/town/village/county you're in still has open carry restrictions on their local books.
