I just read a Forest Service memo dated March 2008 stating that it is illegal to carry a handgun in the entire Superior National Forest (which includes the BWCA) unless you have a Minnesota conceal/carry permit.

I have never heard of this before.

What's going to happen during hunting season if someone chooses to deer hunt with a pistol and doesn't have a CC permit?????

This could get very interesting!!!!!

I received a call from the head of the Forest Service Tuesday morning at 9:30.
It appears that he caught some political heat and are back tracking on this.
It seems (from what I got from the conversation) that it's business as usual and no special permits, etc are required to take a handgun on any trip into the BWCA or Superior National Forest.
The original idea came out of the Duluth office, but he would not give me the name of the person suggesting it.
