    Open Carry while fishing/camping/hunting????

    Ok, I know that open carry is not legal in Fl unless you are fishing/camping or hunting, or going/coming from such endeavor's.

    So my question is this, If I have A CC permit recognized by the state of Florida , If I also carry a fishing pole in my truck/vehicle at all times can I open carry and just claim that i'm on my way to/from fishing and be perfectly legal????

    Things that make you go HUUUUMMMM!!!!!



    Woody,

    Why is common sense not so common???

    Think about the thread regarding letter and spirit of the law. If your guts tell you that this is not what the legislators meant, then don't do it!

    I don't have my book handy but I thought that concealed carry was legal even without a permit if you were fishing/hunting/ camping. I didn't think open carry was legal execpt during hunting season in hunt areas. I can't see going to a public lake to fish and being allowed to open carry. I can see concealed being OK.

    Be sure to post up how it went when you get out of jail...lol!

    I'm pretty sure even if an attorney got you out of it later on that you would more than likely take a ride to jail for the night on a felony charge. Not worth the risk in my book.

    Of course some people like to be the ones to test out different possible loop holes in the law.

    Not me....

    OldJeep, I think you're correct. Gutmacher, 6th edition, page 98, says "so long as you are engaged in "lawful" fishing, hunting, or camping, a weapon or firearm can be carried on your person so long as it is carried concealed."

    This brings up an interesting question. I live 1.3 miles from the Okaloosa Island Fishing Pier and I fish there almost daily. Now by the statutes, I would be legal to carry while on the pier fishing and while traveling to and from the pier, even without a carry license.

    Now my question is, since LEOs occasionally come out onto the pier, if the wind were blowing and plastered my shirt against my rig, thereby creating printing, how long would it take for me to be smashed face down on the pier with cuffs being put around my wrists? Okaloosa county deputies could be a little jumpy right now. Can't say that I really blame them for being a little jumpy right now what with the tragic loss of two of our deputies a few days ago.
