    Can I carry a shotgun in Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, CA?

    I plan on going backpacking at the Virginia Lakes in California. It's right near Yosemite and obviously bear country. Now that I can't take my .357, what can I take for self defense? Can I keep an unloaded shotgun in my backpack with the slugs in there, or in a separate pouch, or in my pocket? Or am I stuck fighting a bear with my knife? The Virginia Lakes are in Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest but we might stray into Yosemite in case that makes a difference.

    Find someone to go with you, and make sure they are fatter and slower than you.

    Registering gun owners to prevent crime, is like registering Jews to prevent a HOLOCAUST.

    Carry a baseball bat along to break your hiking partners leg with.

    Enjoy your trip.
    If you woke up breathing, congratulations! You get another chance.

    It's a lot lighter than a baseball bat.

    Seriously though, has those petty despots in Sacramento made it unlawful to carry a loaded handgun while hiking or camping?
