Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, a firearm, bow, or crossbow may not be placed, possessed,
or transported in or on a motorboat or vehicle, except that the restrictions on placing
or possessing a firearm on a vehicle do not apply if the vehicle is stationary. This bill
adds that the restrictions on placing or possessing a bow or crossbow on a vehicle do
not apply if the vehicle is stationary. A vehicle, in this context, includes every device
by which any person or property is or may be transported or drawn upon a highway,
except railroad trains and personal delivery devices.
Under current law, a bow or crossbow may not be possessed by a person
operating an all-terrain vehicle or utility terrain vehicle, unless the bow does not
have an arrow nocked or the crossbow is not cocked or is unloaded and enclosed in
a carrying case. This bill adds that the restrictions on possessing a crossbow while
operating an ATV or UTV do not apply when the ATV or UTV is stationary. Also
under this bill, a cocked but unloaded crossbow may be outside a carrying case.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
