Per our conversation on the phone, you are correct to reference section 790.06, Concealed Firearms Permits.
However, Florida State Law makes other exceptions to carrying a Firearm with no license at all. This includes while Hunting, Fishing, Camping, or Legal Target Shooting, are all explicitly cited in Florida Statutes for Openly Carrying a Firearm. Also, the trip to and from the location of such activities is explicitly cited in Statutes for Openly Carrying a Firearm.
Note that this is not a matter of "The Law says nothing, so that makes it legal." These are explicit statements in State Law declaring the acceptability and legality of Openly Carrying a Firearm while Fishing, Camping, Hunting, or Target Shooting, or travelling to or from the point of such activity.
(3) LAWFUL USES.—The provisions of ss. 790.053 and 790.06 do not apply in the following instances, and, despite such sections, it is lawful for the following persons to own, possess, and lawfully use firearms and other weapons, ammunition, and supplies for lawful purposes:

I have removed the unrelated portions for easier reading. If you wish to read this subsection in it's entirety, I have provided the link here:
If you wish to look it up for yourself, it is 790.25, a little ways below 790.06. ;-)
You'll note that the Statute specifically states that this provision stands regardless of 790.06 and no permit is needed, nor is concealment required. Per other portions of the Law, it may be construed that Concealment per 790.25 is forbidden, and Openly Carrying is Required.
My contact with you is not to stir the pot or create a challenge. But merely to prevent any unpleasantness with individuals who might attempt to enforce their Opinion instead of the Law. I'm well equipped with legal research and counsel. I wanted to make 790.25 clear and available, as it is not popularly known. It is my desire to educate without litigation.
I could have just shown up with my gun and waited for an illegal/uneducated LEO/Park response. But knowing that this portion of the law is not commonly known, I wanted to present it first and not be a dick about it.
