Default hiking/camping/hunting with long gun after 1/1/13

Hello I'm planning a hiking/camping trip but i plan on leaving on foot from a populated area and getting to National forest will there be an issue with carrying a long gun? I might decide to hunt small game once at my designated spot( I am licensed to hunt). the thing is this trip will be right after Christmas and go in to January and i know that open carry of rifles from that point will be illegal? so how am i suppose to return if a ride is not available?
any feed back would help everyone i talk to just thinks the trip is dumb decision

Wherever it is otherwise legal to discharge a firearm you should be legal to carry it openly. If your legal to hunt/shoot you can have it openly.

Yes to above, and the open cary ban I believe is only for incorporated areas, there is also an exemption if you have a hunting licence but I am not up on all the details of that.

I'm new, so please forgive any errors. What do you need to have to legally carry a semi-auto shotgun? Just curious and ignorant.

Since it's unclear.... it seems like you will be striking off on foot while still in a town or city with only your backpack and your gun? You are wondering about the legality of having your rifle strapped to your backpack as you hike through town- is this correct?
