Carrying While Fishing/Hunting

I thought I read somewhere that you cannot carry (concealed) while fishing or hunting. I cannot find that anymore, can somebody tell me if this is true or not? Or, should I be looking in the hunting/fishing regs? If I recall, there was something about you had to be hiking.

No prohibition against CC while fishing or hunting (even OC is legal in those instances...790.25 Lawful Possession/Use).

Didn't uesed to be able to if you were in a State Park/National Forest or WMA. That's all legal now.
Thanks. Found it.

790.25 Lawful ownership, possession, and use of firearms and other weapons...
(3) LAWFUL USES.--The provisions of ss. 790.053 and 790.06 do not apply in the following instances, and, despite such sections, it is lawful for the following persons to own, possess, and lawfully use firearms and other weapons, ammunition, and supplies for lawful purposes:...
h) A person engaged in fishing, camping, or lawful hunting or going to or returning from a fishing, camping, or lawful hunting expedition...
I thought National Parks and Forests (i.e., Federal lands) were still off-limits.

It seems like I get an e-mail almost every day from the NRA telling me that the period for public comment on a proposal to allow concealed carry in Nat'l Parks is almost over, so make your voice heard, yadda, yadda...is it OK to CC in National Forests but not National Parks? :confused:
State Parks, National FORESTS and WMAs are fine (up to the particular state, FL says yes). National PARKS are not.

Heck, there's a friggin' gun range in Ocala National Forest!
Yes, Carry Everywhere it's Legal

I sure don't want to be out Fishing without a Handgun atleast. It's just the safe thing to do for many reasons. Evil Doesn't stop at the edge of the water.
It's always good to have a backup weapon while Hunting. Strange things happen while Hunting. I prefer .44 Mag or 460 S&W. Bears , Hawgs and so on.
Beware. If you are hunting/fishing or appear to be hunting make sure you have the proper permits for that activity.
If you have a CWP you can carry even when bow hunt only!!
