If the China virus rebounds again in Fall as expected, will that be another opportunity for the liberals to harm gun owners, this time by cancelling deer and elk seasons? That would really tick me off.

I can see it happening. The lib tards are having a field day with this. We recently had our wonderful governor shut down a private golf course that the county sheriff refused to enforce a shut down.
It’s an out door activity at a private club. If someone wants to use their paid membership to go out and smack a ball alone, why not?

Um, I'm gonna throw a News Of The Weird in here.

Something in the woods is hunting humans...in various locations.
Especially at our National Parks.
They actually shut down a large section of the Naval Live Oaks in Gulf Breeze, FL,
before the COVID problem emerged...also a large section of Ft. Pickens is now Persona Non Grata.

So who opened up the Hellmouths??

Is this why they don't want folks out late at night now??

I see no reason for any hunting season to be cancelled ever. What better place for a person to be than out in the woods enjoying nature. The trees sure ain't gonna give you the COVID. Go camping, go fishing, go hiking, plant a garden, plant a tree, get out the ball gloves and play with your kids/grandkids. There's nothing better you can do for yourself right now than enjoying the outdoors, as long as you're not doing with a group of 50 strangers. And if you are, good luck on the hunting!?!?!

I agree Animalspooker, get out and play with your kids. do a what is allowed in your state search and make some memories instead of all the whineing.

I can't go to the golf course and drink beer rideing around on the cart with my buddies, You know very well you will not play alone.

Fishing is allowed here from row boats canoes and kiyaks. No power boats because theyuse gasoline and a lot of people don't use gloves when handling the pump handles.
plus the DNR told her the clowns were backed up at boat launches and mingling close together.

Fishing for steel head at Tippy dam was shoulder to shoulder and the dnr told them to clear out or seprate for 6 feet or more. they gave him a hard time so the county sherriff came and told them the same thing. they refused so a bunch were arrested and more ticketed for refuseing a lawfull order.
Now no one fishes there just because the fool wouldn't seprate.

Hunting and Fishing fall under "being in nature" in MN. Turkey season started on Wednesday, and there are a TON of new hunters. Parents are taking their kids out with them, it seems.

MN makes way too much money to cancel hunting seasons.

This will be a state by state decision made by each one's Fish and Game department (via the body that oversees them). Some will decide to keep seasons open, while others will cave.

What is already happening is non-resident tags will be taken off the market. This sort of makes sense, considering rural towns not wanting a bunch of out-of-staters coming in from potential hot spots and hanging out in their bars, motels, restaurants, and the like.

States, towns, and fish and game departments will lose money, but if your state decides to keep the seasons open and you live near good hunting, the woods should be less crowded this year.

Yea, the 3 guys I hunt with already have a social distancing rule. We stay about 800 yards apart on the long narrow 1,700 acres we hunt. Now the 3 guys in the el cheapo hotel room could be a problem, may have to get a spare car battery so I can use my CPAP in a tent. LOL Nothing could be safer than putting tens or thousands of guys way out in the boonies for a few weeks. Duh. You are so correct.

Alaska issued an order closing Spring bear season to non-resident hunters extended out to May 31st.

...now if they could only do this for the entire year for all species and reissue the tags to residents! I still can't believe I didn't get drawn for ANYTHING this year after applying for a dozen different tags! In fact, I can't think of anyone I know who won a tag this year. The non resident list was sure fat though! Glad I at least still have resident registration hunts to rely on for Moose.

I didn't get anything either, but my neighbors son, who is in college in Arizona got a nice Bison draw. Go figure.
