Can a NON- resident hike with me and carry a gun for protection

My Buddy (A NON-resident) wants to hike with me . He does not hunt and does "not" want to harvest a Deer or an Elk . He does want to hike with me during hunting season but would feel more comfortable having a holstered pistol on him for protection. Esp. with all the Wolf tracks we are seeing in Unit 25 . Is it legal for him to carry a gun in the field.


Yes, he can carry a gun for protection even if he is not hunting.
