If I have a CHL can I...

carry in the duck blind?

I have asked several people who all say no because of lead. I have read that you are allowed to carry during bow season for deer but can't find the same rule (or not) for migratory game birds.


Why would I need to carry when I already have a shotgun? loco Just interested to know if you CAN, not if it makes sense or not.

Thanks

As long as you are not shooting at ducks with your pistol I am pretty sure you are good to go.

I'd say yes. But you might want to check with your gw. They seem to interpret the law differently than I do.

If you get charged, let me know. I'll show up on your court date.

Our old game warden didn't care. I'd have to ask the two we have now.

Best I know, there's not a specific problem with legally carrying a handgun on your waterfowl hunt.

The direction given in the 2013-2014 digest is specific to shotgun/muzzleloader shells/loose shot.

http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/publications/pwdpubs/media/pwd_bk_k0700_1014.pdf

I would review "legally carrying" though, as it relates to public hunting land and potentially army corp property around Texas lakes, because there are some regulations there that would keep you from "legally carrying" regardless of the activity.

Yes you can. It's legal to posses on your property plus it's not a legal means mad method for said game thus they can't enforce it. That is unless you are attempting to shoot ducks with it, but we all knew what your question meant.

2013-2014 Texas Waterfowl Digest- NONTOXIC SHOT
No person, while hunting waterfowl anywhere in the state, may possess shotgun shells containing lead shot or loose lead shot for use in muzzleloaders. Approved shot includes steel, including copper, nickel or zinc-coated steel, bismuth-tin, tungsten-iron, tungsten-polymer (i.e., moly-shot), and any other nontoxic material approved by the director of the USFWS.

On my lease, even the grasshoppers have teeth. If I were to get ticketed for carrying a sidearm while taking game by legal methods, there is going to be one heck of a sale in the classifieds, because I would come back to town and sell every sporting firearm I own.

I've been checked by the game warden the last two opening weekends. Both times I was carrying 3 12 gauge slugs for hogs. Both times i took them out and showed them to him and he didn't even look at them...he knew why I had them. Even made the comment, "If you can hit a duck with a slug, I wouldn't write you a ticket anyway". We all laughed and he went on about his business. I realize some of the wardens aren't as friendly but the majority of them are outdoorsmen just like us.

As far as your question, I haven't the slightest.

Why would you carry one anywhere?

Ya never know what you're going to run into and there's no good reason to NOT carry.

i am new to to texas but im am for florida and the law is simple. you can not have lead shotgun shells wile waterfowl hunting, it does not mean you can not carry concealed or open other firearm different than a shotgun with lead shells. you are not allowed to hunt waterfowl with a hand gun.

i asked once to the gw on a public wma, that i will be duck hunting in the morning and hog hunting in the afternoon so obviously i had a combination of shells with me, and didn't want to come back to the car to change shells he said as long as i don't catch you using lead on ducks you are fine.

there is a thin line and it all depends on the game warden or the law enforcement officer that you talk with and the situation.

now the hand gun....... i carry i always concealed to avoid problems, even when i have the right by law to wear it open wile involved in a hunting activity. i carry it for the pure purpose of defense against two and four legged threats, a fine or citation is nothing when you life is in danger. just my opinion.

Take your .22 rifle with you and let me know how that works out for you.
