I do believe that you can carry a semi auto for protection as long as you have a LTCF...

As of 2007, yes. LTCF holders may carry semi-auto pistols for self defense while hinting/spotting.

I was really happy to read that in this years hunting manual. It was something I always wanted to do but didn't want to get hassled by "the man."

Default Re: carrying a semi auto pistol while hunting

Yes, you can carry a semi auto with you while hunting, IF you have a LCTF. However, if you wound an animal DO NOT use the semi auto to finish the kill. If you do you have now violated the PGC rule against using a semi auto firearm for hunting. If you are carrying a revolver you can use that for finishing shots. Also remember that any hunting firearm needs to be .20 caliber centerfire or larger (for big game).

Default Re: carrying a semi auto pistol while hunting

.20 caliber or larger CENTERFIRE cartridge only (something with a primer in the center). .22 LR (a Rimfire cartridge) is NOT allowed (rimfire - the priming material is the the bases' edge) It used to be that it had to be a .25 caliber centerfire or larger but with the new high power .20 caliber and larger rifle cartridges (.204 Ruger, etc) they changed what is now allowed.

You may also carry a sidearm while archery hunting as of this year.
