Today's legal question


Recommended Posts

Where you live (because I'm sure every state has their own rules) is it legal for someone to go hunting with you if they do not have a hunting license? You are going out after deer, and you bring your friend Bill along for company. Bill is not planning on hunting deer. Bill is not going to carry a gun. Bill is just going along.

 

Legal?

No gun = not hunting.

If you hunt game or attempt to hunt game by any method or if you assist someone else to do so, you must have a valid hunting license. There are some exceptions...

 

Bill may just be along for company, but it may be a hard sell to a warden given the wording here. If he helps carry any gear or haul out your trophy, he is assisting you.

 

To be legal here, he would have to be useless.

Indiana, yes.
