    Default State forest long gun open carry

    I've tried to research this over and over and can't seem to find accurate info. I am planning on going hiking at Millaux state forest in pa and want to open carry a long gun. Is this legal?

    Thanks, it's still not clear though. It seems I'm not the only one who is confused...

    It is legal.

    It doesn't mean you wont be harassed by DNCR or WCO(especially the DNCR).

    Don't act like you're hunting.

    Can you find a law that prohibits OC of a long gun?
    If not it's legal.

    It is not illegal but under the Hunting Codes there is a presumption that if you are in the field/woods with a long gun you are hunting.

    Why don't you just obtain a hunting license and go hunt coyotes? Seems easy enough to me.
