much of what i said may be incorrect, as the info was possibly taken from wilderness act of 1964, and each and every wilderness area may differ on exact terms and conditions. But keep in mind that the US Forest Service only includes a measly 18% of National Wilderness land.
the bulk of Wilderness falls under National Park Service jurisprudence. (56%)
SO, even if you can carry loaded guns anywhere you dang well please (which should be the case) you cannot.
I dont think Fossil Springs is any place to be carrying anyway, because it would take some extreme caution to discharge anywhere that is not in the vicinity or direction of people.
i said: "In some
wilderness areas, only rifles and shotguns are allowed. Sidearms and pistols are illegal, fired or not."
that is fact. some wilderness areas does not mean ALL.
