    A buddy and I are planning on doing a canoe trip starting this coming Sunday from Raleigh to Kinston, NC. We are planning on putting the canoe in near Falls of the Neuse by the dam and taking out in Kinston. Was wondering if I open carried a pistol if it would be legal on this trip? I am 21 and he is 20 if that makes any difference. Thanks in advance.

    But, if memory serves, it doesn't say anything about having a loaded gun on the water. Makes no sense, but hey, thats the world we live in.

    I've done it, Just not that far down the river. I would not do it without my gun.

    On a side note, Good Luck. The river is low right now, and when you get tothe Neuse Low Lands (between Smithfield and Goldsboro) expect to do some walking with it. Lots and Lots of trees all the way across. We had planned to float from Smithfield to a ramp just before Goldsboro last year, but we ended up taking out about half way there on a guys property that my buddy knew. It took us a day and a half to get that far. But we were ina 14ft Jon boat, you should have better luck in a canoe. You will also have to take out at Milburnie Dam. It is near US Hwy64. I imagine it is about a 6 or 8ft drop right now.
