Without a permit. I know, from what I've read, that you can carry it without a permit while hunting.. but I'm just curious if you can carry without a permit while camping in the deep woods.

Short form: in some situations, yup. In others, nope. You're better off with a permit, which covers most situations.

You're welcome, of course. That's a particularly good question, but there really aren't many stupid ones.

First, my recommendation is to get a permit, there are a myriad of reasons that extend beyond carrying...
Quote:
Weapons
It is unlawful for any person to possess explosives of any kind. It is also against the law for any person to possess a firearm (including an air gun) unless the firearm is unloaded and completely contained in a fully enclosed gun case or unloaded and contained in the closed trunk of a vehicle. A person who is legally permitted under MS 624.714 to carry a handgun in the State of Minnesota, may legally carry that handgun in state parks.


IANAL, but there is some precedent that renting a campsite makes that your residence, so it would be lawful, but I wouldn't want to test those waters.

Sure. If you just get the carry permit, you don't have to think about having that kind of test case.

Test cases are for others. I try to keep it concealed when camping. Of course I've been to one camp site that was very pro carry.
