Bingo. See the other exclusions listed in the thread.

How can go to someone elses property and hunt? There has to be other exceptions 46.02, but I can't find them. Thanks for the help.
You're incorrect, but it's hard to keep it all straight:

http://law.onecle.com/texas/penal/46.15.00.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

§ 46.15. NONAPPLICABILITY. (a) Sections 46.02 and 46.03
do not apply to:

" is on the person's own premises or premises under
the person's control
unless the person is an employee or agent of
the owner of the premises and the person's primary responsibility
is to act in the capacity of a security guard to protect persons or
property, in which event the person must comply with Subdivision "

"is engaging in lawful hunting, fishing, or other
sporting activity on the immediate premises where the activity is
conducted, or is en route between the premises and the actor's
residence, if the weapon is a type commonly used in the activity;"

Texas is strange.
Your visitors can't legally open carry on your property (at all) unless:
1) They're in control - leasing it or renting it.
2) You guys are hunting.
3) You're target shooting.

(those are the exclusions that I remember)


Basically, it's not possible to give another person permission to open carry a handgun on your property without one of the above cases.

In fact, I don't understand how you legally take a gun from your car into a buddies suburban home unless you have a CHL.

Business are different. It may be if you're in "control" of the business - IE represent the owner or somehow manage, that may be allowed... :tiphat:
