Thanks buddy, I thought that was the case, I don't know how I missed that, my nephew was wanting to make sure he was legal, folks had been telling him it was illegal, and I didn't think it was but started second guessing, I told him they probably were referring to wma, not nf land outside of wma, thanks again.
