Things are a little different here than in Colorado (or California, or pick a state).
If you're walkin' around in the woods with a hunting rifle and all cammo'd up when its not hunting season, yeah, someone might inquire as to what you're doing.
I don't hunt, but carry a large frame revolver each and every time I've been in the woods. I've yet to be stopped and I have yet to ever hear of anyone being charged with anything for doing so. My wife and I fart around in the woods almost every weekend throughout the year.
A Ranger would probably be more interested in what you carrying instead of why.
I wouldn't worry about it.
I 'spose you could go to the nearest office and ask them to clarify things as well.
