    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..

    State statute...speaks of State parks. County parks would not apply.

    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.



    http://www.legis.state.wi.us/statutes/Stat0029.pdf

    29.089 Hunting on land in state parks and state fish
    hatcheries.

    (1) Except as provided in sub. (3), no person may
    hunt or trap on land located in state parks or state fish hatcheries.

    (2) Except as provided in sub. (3), no person may have in his
    or her possession or under his or her control a firearm on land
    located in state parks or state fish hatcheries unless the firearm is
    unloaded and enclosed within a carrying case.

    (3) A person may hunt deer, elk, wild turkeys, or small game
    in a state park, or in a portion of a state park, if the department has
    authorized by rule the hunting of that type of game in the state
    park, or in the portion of the state park, and, except as provided in
    s. 29.063 (5), if the person holds the approvals required under this
    chapter for hunting that type of game.

    History: 1989 a. 214; 1997 a. 237; 1997 a. 248 s. 599; Stats. 1997 s. 29.089; 2001

    Wisconsin Administrative Code: NR20.05(2)

    I'm not sure what role Administrative Codes play in the judicial sytem but this is what NR20/05(2) says in regards to firearms along waterways.

    NR 20.05 General restrictions.
    No person may do any

    of the following:

    (2)
    Possess or control any firearm, gun or similar device at any

    time while on the waters, banks or shores that might be used for

    the purpose of fishing.
