    There's never been a federal restriction on carrying in a National Forest. Some states have their own restrictions, however.

    The rule change President Bush put into place that was recently blocked by a judge concerned carry in National Parks.

    Also, you need to know that Tennessee law prescribes carry in National forests as well as parks.

    It is on page 3 of the Acrobat file.

    This is true.

    In general, carrying or using firearms in National Forests is unrestricted, except for some NF land in the south and south-east (such as TN.)

    Firearms in National Parks are severely restricted.

    National Forests are managed by the Dep't of Agriculture.

    National Parks are managed by the Dep't of the Interior.

    Two different Cabinet departments with two different sets of rules.

    To the OP, I strongly suggest you make use of the forum's feature. This topic has been discussed at length.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
