    Carrying While Hunting?

    I'm coming up to MN at the end of October for hunting and had a question about carrying. Namely I was told that I can't carry a .40 while hunting because it isn't large enough to hunt with; even though I'm not carrying it for hunting reasons. I've tried to search for the law but have no clue where to start and when I tried searching online I wasn't having much luck on Google.

    You didn't mention what you were hunting.

    The only game that has ammo restriction is Deer.

    If you have a permit to carry, carry away. Until recently, it was only a crime to carry while bow-hunting. We successfully got that changed last year.

    2011 hunting regs. Page 17-18

    Handguns
    Persons age 18 or older may carry a handgun in the woods and
    fields or upon waters to hunt or target shoot. Persons under age 18 may
    carry handguns for hunting if in the actual presence or under the direct
    supervision of the personís parent or guardian, and if they meet firearms
    safety requirements (see page 14). Except those licensed to carry a concealed
    weapon
    , a person may not possess a firearm while bowhunting for deer.
    Now I have to figure out where I can get a license to carry a CONCEALED handgun....

    I sometimes carry my Sig P6 openly while small game hunting, primarily because I just feel like it.
