Q: Is a gun inside a gun sock considered encased when walking to and from your stand outside of legal shooting times?
A: A firearm that is completely enclosed within a gun sock is considered to be encased. The firearm cannot be partially sticking out of the gun sock. Also, remember that the firearm needs to be unloaded.
