the WI DNR can change anything in the DNR rule book with no warning or public hearing.

if you are participating in the licensed activity of operating a ATV on public lands or water they have jurisdiction over you.

if it is an unlicensed use like private land use on the farm then they wouldn't likely have much say.

we have thousands of miles of ATV trail in WI in the town I live in every street in town other than the state highway is an ATV trail , people ride them around town like small cars.
several county roads are also ATV trail.
all of this falls under the ATV registration license.

the ATV club recently updated the town on some ATV trail info the DNR states they have 80K trial users.

ATV/UTV in WI is big stuff

in WI in 2019 there were 149 non fatal ATV accidents reported and 22 Fatal ATV accidents.

I can see their motivation.

Just a matter of time before you have to take an ATV safety course before you can ride - for an additional fee to the state of course.

Riding with a buddy you each have to wear a mask too! You know "social distancing"!

Wow... I would've never guessed that the Beav was a sack-to-crack guy... you must have good fishing spots.

Here's what I had read
ATV Passenger Rules
Previously only on the roadway were passengers restricted only to those ATVs that were designed and intended for passengers. Now that requirement has been extended to all other areas. ATV operators cannot have a passenger riding in or on any part of an ATV that is not designed or intended to be used by passengers. Aftermarket seating does not comply with the new law change.


Isn't a seat? intended for passengers or just passenger?

I wonder how many of those involved a passenger? Most of the bad accidents around here have been due to limited visibility or excessive speed for the conditions.

You know registration is still required even if the vehicle is only used exclusively on private land, right?

Wisconsin private use, non-agricultural registration fee: $15, valid until ownership is transferred

Valid for use exclusively on private lands owned by the applicant or by an immediate family member. (ss 23.335(1)(j)[exit DNR] [exit DNR] “Immediate family” means persons who are related as spouses, who are related as siblings, or who are related as parent and child.) This type of registration remains valid until ownership is transferred.

Me and Mrs Brownie ride double on my Suzuki Eiger 400 every hunting season.

When we do bear drives, I’ve gathered up and hauled three guys+ me on my quad. Just have to go slow in low range.

I guess there may be a positive side in that I mentioned the new rule/law to my wife and said we may have to get a UTV now. She did not say no.
