Under the Question you asked....as in a CCW...NO, for there is No Such Thing in PA!outdoors man said:Is it legal to carry, with proper permint, a pistol/revolver during the 2 day archery bear season?
You can carry a S&W .44 mag Revolver, you can carry a S&W .357 Revolver....you can carry any type of Pistol you want....just have to have that there LTCF!Shooter X said:Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I am going to say yes, as long as your carry gun can not be considered a hunting gun.
Shove all the arrows in that Bear.. then Pull the Pistol and empty it into the bear...just make sure that you got bite marks on you that proves the bear had ahold of you and was going to try it's best to make you a prehibernation snack....you then have tried your best to take it with means of a Bow, but it kept attacking you and you had to resort to not taking it to tag it but to kill the dang thing before it killed you.....huntergoldie08 said:

The new FWS regulations state" ...persons may possess, carry and transport concealed, loaded and operable firearms within a national wildlife refuge in accordance with the laws of the state in which the wildlife refuge, or that portion thereof, is located, except as otherwise prohibited by federal law." Similar regulations were issued for National Parks.John S. Would have to quote the law pertaining to it...
I remember last year this subject came up...it was hashed out about even LEOs who are not on duty and are waterfowl hunting can not carry...
Has something to do with the Federal Regs that Single Projectile Ammo is Illegal for Waterfowl Hunting!
A LTCF (License to Carry Firearms) and a Sportsman's Permit are two separate and distinct licenses/permits. If you have a LTCF, then you can carry a firearm (handgun) while spotting, archery hunting, etc., regardless of the "Reason for Carry" that some older LTCF forms included.makeitcount said:Your LTCF has to be for "Personal Protection" to carry while bowhunting, spotlighting, etc. The handbook states:
"A person holding a Sportsman's Firearms Permit may not carry a concealed handgun or a loaded handgun while bowhunting or spotlighting."
