Default How many people carry sidearm hunting.

I was just wondering where it is legal how many hunters carry a pistol hunting. I carry one just for a back up just because you never know. I carry one during bow season espessialy for snakes. South Carolina is known for its timbers and copperheads.

I carry!!! Out here in Idaho we got rattlers and bears and cougars and the worst of it all the wolves. Never can be to careful especially seeing as I hunt with my kids and I will not go down without a fight. I will say that I dont carry a pistol as I want a little more bang for my buck and have found that I can swing a shotgun from a slung position faster than I can pull a hand gun aim and hit effectively. Most attacks by bears and cougars happen so fast I want every millisecond I can get...

Illegal here to carry any firearm while archery hunting.I do know of a fella that carries a .22mag revolver during bow season for long, super arrow shots. I'm sure it's done elsewhere were both are carried at the same time. Chit happens; doesn't make it right, but it happens.

Where I hunt most, it's illegal. I would if I could though!

here in NJ if you get caught your done, automatic 5 year sentence. Since I'm in law enforcement I can carry, and carry in all 50 states. I do think everyone who is of sound mind should be allowed carry nation wide, we all have the right to protect ourselves, family and others

NH - I carry while bow hunting for whitetails, just in case a bear presents a shot out of range or coyote.

If you look closely @ my avatar it's the one on my dead 8 pointer...
I also hunt for whitetails during firearms season with it, occasionally, as this picture shows...

You need to check your state laws. In Fl it is illegal during bow season. You can kill a snake with a stick anyway.
