can you open carry while hiking on trails in Adirondacks?
can you hunt from those trails
I think with a hunting license your good to go.
I think the problem is "in the Adirondacks." Isn't that a prohibited place?
Your permit is to "have and carry concealed".If its legal to hunt from the trails and you have a hunting licance I don't see why you wouldn't be able to carry. I have never hunted there so I don't know what type of hunting regs they have.
9 CRR-NY 375.1 p 1 states that possession of a firearm is prohibited on property under the jurisdiction, custody and control of the office.Correct. HOWEVER, aren't the Adirondacks a prohibited place?
That's because AMR land is NOT state land.......it's an easement granted by the Ausable club members to allow the general public to access to several trails in their area. That's why in your link they go through the trouble of describing specific trail numbers where they do allow access to state lands during big game/small game dates only.....but you can't hunt their lands, just transit through.9 CRR-NY 375.1 p 1 states that possession of a firearm is prohibited on property under the jurisdiction, custody and control of the office.
Office meaning the NYS Office of Parks. I don't think the Adirondack park falls under that.
