As you can also see, a crossbow would also be considered a firearm in Rhode Island too. Even a stripped frame or receiver is considered a firearm here.... Liberal states are awesome....aint they.

Illinois Hunting Regulations page 12.

It is unlawful to carry a bow or bow and arrow devise in or on a vehicle, conveyance or aircraft UN-LESS it is unstrung or enclosed in a case, or otherwise made inoperable.


A lock or a zip tie makes it inoperable.

In Michigan, a bow has to be in a case if being transported. A firearm has to be in a case and unloaded. A muzzleloader is considered unloaded if you take the cap off.

An exception for handguns if you have a CPL.

I do not know if that is the case, however I am sure they would hear rights pertaining to the Second Amendment if the court was more liberal. Hopefully, BHO does not appoint any more judges to any court - especially the Supreme Court.

Recent legislation that was passed is very concerning. Let's see - have a firearm and more than seven days of food. That would make every hunter a person of interest for being a terrorist.

When leaving the stand at dark, in IL, the bow must be rendered inoperable. I incorrectly assumed leaving the quiver and all arrows in the stand made it inoperable. Fortunately, the GW that met me at my truck not only had a sense of humor but knew I was hunting with the then, director of DNR...his boss.

But since that time, I have always carried a lock to the stand with me and locked my bow coming and going and I never use any motorized transport unless the bow is in a hard case and the case latched.

Maybe a stupid law but one that is easy to obey.

Doesn't sound easy to me or legal and it isn't stupid, it's abuse of power. Then again I think many things in Ill. are abusive, a reason I avoid all contact with the state. If I have a chance to do business there it has to be I have no other option. Kind of like arresting someone in a bar for having cigareets and a lighter since the new anti smoking laws. Something I'm sure Ill, will make law as soon as they think of it.

A bow is legal, hunting is legal, arrows are legal, if I use them to commit a crime arrest me, if I just have them you shouldn't be able to arrest me just for carrying them. That's one screwed up state.

I have a hunting friend that lives in a near by city who's also law enforcement, he can't shot his bow and when I mentioned it to him said even sling shots are illegal.
