    I do a lot of Fly Fishing; alone, in areas generally unpopulated. For my own protection from rabid animals, etc. I have a .22 cal western-style revolver I wish to carry in an open-style hip holster. I fish primarily in Ohio and Pa. - any thoughts /comments would be appreciated.

    It's not unlawful to OC on foot in Ohio - no permit needed.

    There may be some conflict with State hunting regulations (since it's hunting season). Since I don't hunt, I don't keep up on it, but you might check out www.buckeyefirearms.org to be sure.

    It probably wouldn't apply to you if you're not hunting, but with the maze of laws you can't be too sure.

    i don't think anyone will be alarmed if they see you carrying a gun while your fishing, are you going to be in a boat? some laws on that but I never plan on being in a boat so i don't read those. Also some new hunting regulations will start allowing people to carry their CCW (liscensed) while they hunt deer. Previously was illegal to have any gun with you while hunting deer unless it was the type allowed to take a deer with. As far as any other game you should be fine unless it is deer.

    Keep you takedown tools and some dry rags in your car in case you take a little dip just so you don't get the rusties. > )
