Thread: Carrying a rifle on a quad bike

    Carrying a rifle on a quad bike

    I'm going to buy a quad for the winter just wondered Does anyone know in depth knowledge of the law regarding carrying a rifle on a quad via farms? Does it have to be covered whilst on highway or Aslong as im present can I travel legally, it it literally yards from gates to gate but beside the point I suppose. Many thanks all.

    I would think you would need it covering, you can get those proper gun cases for quads in durable plastic to cover but also to keep it safe, atb wayne

    When I used to feed around and when lamping etc I just used to put the rifle in a slip. That was on a road legal quad and I went between farms never had a problem.

    Needs to be unseen, unloaded and bolt removed to be legal (in Dyfed Powys area anyway)

    Thats probably better advise! I never had a problem but it dosnt mean its right!

    Unloaded, yes.

    Bolt removed whilst in your physical possession, no.

    In a protective case, wise.

    When on the public highway I put mine in a slip bungy corded on the front rack, bolt and ammo in my pocket just in case anything random should happen on the way (RTA, mugging etc)... at least then you can say you took all reasonable precautions.

    OP stated "yards from gate to gate".

    How about being mugged when you have parked up at your permission and open your car door.....

    Yes, you have bolt hidden, ammunition hidden and rifle in a slip in the locked car boot. You put all together and then all of a sudden you "haven't taken all reasonable precautions" when you are mugged...

    I do wish some people would get a better life.

    Fair point, I missed that. In my case it's about a mile on the road.

    Not sure this was necessary.
