I know there’s a couple *censored*s that want to play the number game with the tests and they’re right to an extent. Test more people = more people sick. Survival rate high?  Yup. But, the real problem Is the limited space in hospitals. Most hospital beds are being used by the normal, everyday problems. Now, you throw in a large number of convid patients and the hospitals are over whelmed. There’s no where to put everyone. Hence the combat hospitals that are being built. But those only add 296 beds. This country has a large population that has issues: fat, high blood pressure, diabetic, cancer, asthma, HIV, old, etc. Those are the people that potentially will end up in an ICU on a ventilator. So please tell me what they are going to do when everyone is using  all the beds/ventilators and there’s still a line of people waiting.  It just from the disease, but maybe you have a heart attach or get in a car accident. I can tell you what they do, but I’d rather have someone post a worthless Wikipedia article.

Good thing all the walking and cycling paths are still wide open and packed then!
I agree with you but close ALL outdoor activities or what's the *censored*ing point?!

There's a good podcast by the WDFW director on the subject.

So he said there will be an announcement on monday about spring bear snd turkey.  He also said they dont feel the need to close cougar / coyote since those arent destination hunts thst have a lot of participation or traveling involved

If all fishing and turkey and bear and everything else closed then they may become destination hunts. Kind of like people fishing humpies when other salmon is doing poorly.  I got dogs visiting me every night in my back yard but some will travel to find one.

Nobodys been out hunting lions for the last 3 months at least, no new closures.  Whst makes you think people will start now?  Besides, its open pretty much statewide, so people dont have to travel for it like they do for turkey or spring bear.  Coyotes likewise are open statewide year round, so no need for significant travel, and those who want to do it are slready doing it
I think that with the land closures that you’re right. I was just thinking that there is a possibility now that some would take up cougar just to have an excuse to get out in the woods who wouldn’t have thought about it a month or 2 ago.

I just seen on the news channel 12. That Orygun has a drive-through farmers market unbelievable.
Hey! I'm not a complete idiot I have parts missing. Though sometimes I wonder.

If you want to make God laugh tell him your plans.
