Here in South Dakota you have to have a concealed carry license to carry a pistol with a bow. Resident or non-resident doesn't matter as long as your state has reciprocity with ours. Now I am not sure if that is how it is with all states. Make sure to read all of the hunting regs and it should tell you there. I hqve also emailed or called conservation officers to get their opinion as they will be the ones enforcing the rules. Hopefully you can get a specific answer soon.
