Vehicles, aircraft and boats
It is prohibited to:
hunt down, injure or deliberately kill an animal using a vehicle, an aircraft or a motorboat;
- hunt migratory birds using an aircraft, a sailboat or a motorboat, an automobile or a vehicle pulled by a work animal.
- Hunting migratory birds from a motorboat is permitted only when the motor is stopped and the boat has ceased to move. However, a motorboat may be used to look for a dead or injured migratory bird;
- to be in or on any motorized land vehicle whatsoever, an aircraft or a trailer pulled by a vehicle and:
- at any time to be in possession of an armed crossbow (see note) or a firearm containing an unfired cartridge placed in the chamber, the loader or the magazine when the latter is attached to the firearm or, in the case of a muzzle-loading firearm, containing powder and a bullet in the chamber, and a detonator in the shaft, or powder in the pan;
- to shoot with a firearm, a crossbow or a bow from such a vehicle, aircraft or trailer;
- be in possession at night of an unloaded firearm, a bow or an unloaded crossbow except if the arms are stored in a closed case or placed in the trunk of the vehicle or the hold of the aircraft.
Moreover, the hunter must abide by the provisions in the Federal Firearms Act mentioned.
Note: To ensure safety, during transportation, the string of the crossbow must never be connected to the firing mechanism, even if there is no bolt in the groove.
