Is there hunting allowed in any of the National Parks?

    No, it sounds like hunting is illegal within National Park boundaries based on some searching on the web. However, a law that was passed in 2009 now allows people to carry concealed firearms into the parks. Opponents of the law believe that this compromises the safety within parks and also poses a threat to wildlife because it may lead to poaching. The law allows guns into “all but three of the nation’s 391 parks.”

    ghuang278 is right; National Parks by definition do not allow hunting, mining, or any other type of “consumptive activity,” according to the National Park Service website. National Preserves, however, which share some of the same attributes as National Parks, do offer hunting and trapping opportunities to the public and may also be used for oil and gas extraction. For example, hunting is permitted in the Mojave National Preserve in California, as well as the Big Cypress National Preserve in Florida.
