Re: WY Rules on rifles in vehicles

However, under Prohibited Acts. It is Illegal to: Carry a firearm with a cartridge therein.................?? (This is also in the hunting regulations!!)
Now tell me, how is it possible to hunt/shoot a game animal with an unloaded gun? Some of these laws are very unclear and unfortunately that leaves them open to interpretation, the hunters interpretation vs the game wardens interpretation vs the courts interpretation, ect.

if you read the entire regulation. state statute 23-3-307. No person shall carry a firearm with a cartridge therein, or take any wildlife in Wyoming, while intoxicated or under the influence of a controlled substance as defined in the wyoming controlled substance act of 1971.

Seems pretty cut and dried to me

as far as carrying your firearms in your vehicle, as long as you are sober they really dont care how you do it

And as for spotlighting bobcats and badgers the law is very clear. They are classified as a furbearing animal. see state staute 23-1-101 section iii, and as a game animal you may not use artificial light extending down range to harvest them
