First- Great pics. Thanks for sharing.
Regarding carrying/ hunting- head over to the Calguns.net forum. They have a wealth of knowledge there. There is even a hunting/ fishing section.
If you were openly carrying, I would imagine most people might give a sideways glance but that would be it. A few might gasp(!).
If you looked like a hunter (camo, orange vest/ hat etc), they’d probably assume you were hunting or perhaps some “official”. Although, I didn’t even realize there were hunters on the trails until I ran across them the first time.
With your California CCW, you can carry concealed however you like as long as it’s concealed. I would think a simple molle attached chest pouch would give you quick access and still abide by the concealed carry laws. I can’t imagine trying to carry in a hip holster with a backpack!
I’ve been backpacking a few years now in and around the SGWA and the only deer I’ve seen was the one a group of hunters were carrying out. I’ve never seen a bear.
