im almost sure in newyork you carry on your side not covered up for hunting and recreational stuff. does any one know for sure?
At the risk of digging up that horse and re-beating it:
If you are in the process of hunting and have a HUNTING handgun, then you may carry it open or unconcealed. If you are carrying a personal protection handgun for hunting, you may carry that unconcealed -as long as you are actually hunting.
NOT going to or coming from. NOT eating breakfast or lunch near your tree stand....You must be actually in the field, hunting.
Once you leave the field, you must case up or conceal the handgun in some fashion, no matter the type of handgun.
The above was obtained by direct conversation with multiple DEC State Troopers.

It never ceases to amaze me how the state of New York can thouroghly screw up an area of law that neighboring Vermont seems to get right.
The problem is that the NYS law is inane. Technically, a permit is only for concealed carry. No exception for hunting or even self-defense. so logically we assume there must be an assumed exception for displaying a weapon while in the course of self defense or hunting, otherwise a permit would be useless.
But then there is the matter of target practice. If i can display my firearm while hunting can't I also do so while engaged in target practice? So I'm in a state forest and carrying unconcealed. I'm engaged in target practice. I 'm shooting at leaves when the wind moves them.
And what about hunting without displaying my backtag in the southern zone? Does that mean i wasn't hunting and therefore carrying my weapon unconcealed is a violation of the firearm laws? or does it simply mean I was hunting without properly displaying my backtag and it is a mere violation of the hunting regulations?
For those of us that did not understand, All of the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) officers are State Police.
As for the rest. I answered a question posed by a member.
Take care everyone.
Later. I'm out
