I am planning a primitive camping trip with my wife in Uwharrie National Forest. I possess a NC concealed handgun permit and know it is legal for me to conceal a handgun on national forest land, but I was wondering if any one knows if open carry is restricted in Uwharrie. Also, I know there are certain hunting regulations, but I want to know if carrying firearms besides handguns is permitted. Since I see myself as responsible for the safety of my wife, I would appreciate being able to have something more than a handgun for protection. It would be extremely obvious to anyone and everyone that we are not in any way hunting. So is this legal? I could not find anywhere that says it was illegal, but I wanted to make sure. Thanks for your time and knowledge, guys!
