    Open carry and ice fishing

    i am looking for info on ice fishing

    since you are no longer on land and water ways can not be owned is it ok to leave your firearm in the holster and not put it back in the case while moving from spot to spot say in a vehicle or 4 wheeler or snowmobile or do you have to follow the law as is if you were on land

    Wisconsin Stat. 167.31 Does not appear to make any exceptions for where the vehicle is located. Only that it is defined as a "vehicle" by WSS 340.01

    I know you can not have a firearm out of the case while in a moving boat for hunting.

    Yes you can have a gun out of its case while hunting in a boat while it is moving. It has to be unloaded but it can be uncased. Example= Duck hunting, if you shoot a bird and it does not die you can (must pursue the wounded bird). you must stop the motor, load your gun, and shoot.

    as long as you are not in or on a vehicle, carry-on!

    BTW, we have 3"-5" of ice already up here, the walleye are hitting right when the sun hits the tree tops at dusk.
