Can't carry on COE lakes/property; no matter what Texas law says ... UNLESS you get written permission from the District Commander (like asking the U.T. President for the same thing ... good luck with that)
So, for example ... in addition to CHLs carrying in canoes/kayaks going down the San Gabriel river (Brazos River Authority) and having someone in a car meet them twice at each lake to have them drive the gun around the lake and meet on the other end ... there will also be unlicensed "MPA types" in canoes/kayaks/boats/jetskis .... meeting cars at the upper ends of COE lakes, to have them drive the gun around the lake and meet on the other end .... so they can be armed on Brazos River Authority waters .... until they reach the next lake where ....

Texas laws aren't recognized by the USACOE; in a nutshell, you can't carry on COE property/lakes... I'm sure all the MPA carriers know not to have a gun in the car on their parking lots So of course all boaters/canoeists/kayakers will know to have someone "portage" their gun around the COE lakes so they can put them back in the boat on the other end .... all the while keeping them concealed while transferring but
"directly en route to a motor vehicle
Should cover the transfer from car to boat and boat to car for unlicensed people ... I hope.
If it's not in plain view ...

Wow,,, I haven't heard of this before. I have a fish camp on Sam Rayburn and have grown up hunting and fishing around that lake since I was a toddler. If this is the case, how is it that duck hunting is allowed ON the lake?
