Default kaskaskia river problems

ok look ive looked and looked for a rule the closest ive found was the no projectile rule but here in collinsville you can not fire a weapon that is considered a projectile but you can still shoot your bow so if someone out there has seen a rule out there that says it is illegal please let me no this is getting out of hand thanks

Most Citys have an ordance to restrict people from discharging firearms and bow in city limits, A law enforcement offical will let you know this if you ask, (but you can swing a golf club in the yard, which stats show more accidents and people injuyed from this and archery all year). However if you are going to bowfish a lake that is permissible to do so in city limits that is fine. Once again your local park official or the lead game or lake manager should be able to answer this.

A rule for where? An arrow is a projectile. If you are talking about up at Carlyle, I posted the exact rule in a different post.

Mike,

"The City of Carlyle maintains an ordinance which disallows the discharging of weapons in the City without his/her written permission. This includes bows. Please note that no part of the Lake or the River are within the City of Carlyle."

Bill Gruen
Carlyle City Administrator


It's the Army Corps of Engineers that controls the spillway area.

BTW, I have no idea what the 'without his/her permission written permission' is about.

What is really silly about the whole deal is. That they will let you shoot all you want up in the old river bed. Which is still in the park boundry's. Which side of their mouth are they talking out of? You can shoot below the rapids all you want.
