I have a CC license here in KY where I live. Am I allowed to carry my weapon while 4 wheeling, and hiking in the woods? I am either camping, or renting a cabin.
it is against the law to have a firearm (even unloaded and encased) in a public park (or any other public place)without written permission. class A misdemeanor.
loaded it is a felony. my suggestion is leave it at home.
technically it is also a class A misdemeanor to have an ax or hatchet or a knife with > 3" blade in the park without written permission as well, but I suspect that is far less likely to get you in trouble.
