My job requires me to travel rather extensively and sometimes, like this week, I will be down around the border. My job requires me to visit telecommunications towers for inspection, which 99% of the time are on private property and I will have to cross multiple fences and gates to get to them. Obviously I have permission to be on said property, and contact property owners to inform them I will be on site. Just curios about how carrying would be viewed in this instance. As I am on another persons private property, could this cause a problem if a land owner decides to call the police for a suspected trespasser.
Had an instance last week where I was parked in a apartment complex parking lot doing a bird study and a cop rolled up to see what I was doing, presented my information and CHL and he got extremely defensive and asked me to conduct my study elsewhere.

CC is one of them "if in doubt, don't do it" things.
But I don't think you have a problem unless the landowner post a 30.06 sign. Or if the landowner gives you a verbal warning. That being said, there is no way the landowner would know.
I think the police officer was just being a turd.

You no longer have to show your CHL when stopped. I do, but just saying. I travel some in my current "job". I always carry.
I work hard, drink a little and hunt when I can.
