Hello me and some friends plan on going camping in Jefferson or George Washington National forest (In virginia). I live in maryland and I was wondering if it would be legal to bring one of my long arms. I don't have a hunting license and I'm not going hunting. However I would like to bring the firearm for defense against whatever wildlife is out there. Or maybe to go plinking. I know giving legal advice is highly discouraged but could someone point me in the correct direction where I can find an answer. Other details my firearms are a 12 Gauge Shotgun, .30-06 Rifle, and a .22 Winchester Rifle.
