Can you offer some supporting information?

That is not how I read the law at all.

here in wisconsin we have open and concealed carry. having open carry is nice since i can carry owb without having to worry about tards freeking out cuz they saw the outline of a gun.

i can typically carry a much bigger pistol that i normally would for ccw and not worry if it pokes out a bit.

most people dont notice or care long as its not sitting there is a leg drop rig or a chest rig or some other tacticool application.

just giving passing effort to drop a shirt tail over the gun is generally enough here to prevent having some sheep dialing 911 and you getting interviewed by the constables.

. Possession of a handgun while engaged in lawful hunting shall not be construed as hunting with a handgun if the person hunting is carrying a valid concealed handgun

That has been my experience in wa as well. I think that in urban america guns are thought of as on tv, used by cops & military, and criminals. They dont know what they are looking at. In rural america many wont care if youre carrying as they probably own and/or are carrying as well.

304inc,
That clears it up. Dropping a few words makes a difference.

Now that's the way I understood it, and the way the instructors at my ccw class and when I took my son to hunters ed class taught it. Now I know that you can hunt with pistols but I'm not sure if a license is needed for that also,, if I am missing something let me know, I would much rather be legal then right,,lol

I dunno about your state but here there are certain barrel and power requirements for you hunting handguns. What I was getting at is the handgun is either one or the other, if it is being carried CCW it is not to be used for any hunting purpose. If it is part of your hunting tackle it has to be kept just like your rifle or shotgun....Unloaded away from the road and in the vehicle etc. Otherwise it would be way to easy to claim a magnum or my Delta as a CCW and then road hunt with it.

When I open carry I have a concealed weapon also. It's not that I feel a need for a backup weapon. Most of the time I had the concealed weapon on me when I strapped the OC weapon on. Other than times when we have a predator ruining my sources of free range eggs I don't open carry. Don't mess with my eggs!!

Wow sounds like your state has some BS hunting regulations. Its illegal to shoot from the road in my state. But they don't try to dictate what you do with your ammo and gun. What state are you in? Paste a copy of those crazy loading/unloading regulations on here!!! I want to see them.

I disagree, i have only one handgun, it is my edc and trail gun, it is legal for hunting, and although my state (wa) also has a no hunting on roadside (except qualified disabled), i have the self control to abide by the law. If im doing any "shooting" roadside, it is with a camera, or in the less than likely event that i need to defend my life.
