    Yeah i hunt with a Bow and the bow is not a good weapon to have to defend yourself with. And i been bowhunting for 15 years, Every serious hunter i know carries a handgun with them when hunting! Your living in a dream world if you think the woods are entirely safe place to be, I've been hunting in the UP in Michigan and been 12 miles in away from anything resembling civilization.

    Ohio has better gun laws than 90% of the nation!

    It's kind of silly to go to an entirely different state while carrying a gun without researching the laws.

    Don't know where you hunt or fish or hike, but I have encountered so many strange characters in the wilds and swamps while fishing, and I've seen the pictures and texts and trash they leave behind, to carry EVERYwhere in the woods...

    Three instances this year alone to warrant carry ...of a defensive weapon.

    Indiana has state park carry now. Good.

    I am OuT.....:cool:

    I have hunted all my life and have NEVER gone without a handgun. I don't believe in playing make believe where the world is a happy place. Those who do it's a sure sign they're detached from reality.

    Now boy I tell ya, that makes about as much sense as carrying a bow with an empty quiver into the woods

    I'm guessing your hunting experience is limited to the token fed range at Cabelas. The vast majority of my hunting is done with handguns, glad I don't heed your advice. Seriously, have you ever actually stepped foot in the woods?

  12. Wouldn't that be a felony for having a loaded gun in the car without a permit?

    You are correct! Although even when playing Nintendo, I have a G29 on my hip!:dunno: :supergrin:
  16. Written up for carrying a long gun pre-season? Just pick something virtually always in season, like coyote or red squirrel.

    Honestly, I can't imagine why you are so anti-handgun. You think you are the only one to hunt? I've hunted my whole life too. Nobody I know is laughing at a guy for carrying a handgun. Some guys might not carry, or might just keep it concealed and you don't know they have it. Other guys simply get a "cool, can I shoot it?" type reaction.

    But what is this "pack a pistol to head into the woods" stuff? There is always a pistol on me, you just can't see it unless I decide on the .44 mag revolver. Were they laughing at me when I shot the deer from 35 yards with my iron sighted revolver and didn't even have a long gun on me?

    It's too bad the OP's buddy got in trouble not knowing another state's anti-gun laws. But I don't know why someone on a gun forum is against carrying a handgun.

    So I'll sling the loaded rifle that I have in my hand so that I can play gunslinger?

    Okay, a thutty-thutty lever gun then.

    Should I sling my loaded Winchester/Marlin so that I can bring the handgun into play?
  19. Another thing, if you don't want to carry a handgun, then fine, don't.

    If you want to buy your animal already cooked in a restaurant, fine.

    If you want to buy your already dead animal from the grocery store, fine.

    You want to raise your own animals and slaughter them with a knife, then fine.

    You want to go out and chase animals with a rifle, fine.

    You want to go after animals with a handgun, fine.

    You want to stalk animals with a muzzleloader, fine.

    You want to pursue animals with a bow, fine.

    You want to trap animals, fine.

    What the heck makes one type of those things so much more superior than the others? What makes someone who does the one want to put down people who do the other?
  20. I don't know, maybe you do what I did and leave your rifle on the ground to climb a tree and break some branches out of the way, before you planned on bringing your rifle up.

    Only, to your great surprise all the freaking noise you made with the breaking branches actually called in a monster buck, as you stare at him with your rifle 15 feet below you at the base of the tree, and your hand frantically digging under your coat for your Glock 10mm :)
