Honestly I've calm down a little since my post.
I rarely see anybody in the spring where I hunt anyway and also have private ground I can hunt so I have no need to block you guys out.
Closing season fishing or hunting just doesn't sit right with me .
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

We’re all just pissed in general right now. A lot to be concerned about and high uncertainty. Now the prospect of losing temporary access to something we all love is a bitter pill.  My family’s been sheltering in place for 3 weeks now and it’s my daughters last turkey season before heading off to start college in the fall. Having another hunt together was something we are both looking forward to. But life isn’t always fair and we have to do what’s right.  We’ll see where things are in a few weeks.
The lazy do not roast any game, but the diligent feed on the riches of the hunt.

Ynless it is your private property.  I am guessing most land iwners are not wanting people coming to their property.  My land owner seemed pretty happy that I cancelled my hunts till this had a chance to settle out.  Remember season is still aways out.  Youth season I believe is going to be looked at pretty hard.

All I can say about region 4 or 5 is that is a personal choice to live where ya want.

Coming to a GMU near you.  We are at least a couple generations in on the eastward movement.  Get ready to bang elbows with your neighbors, unless this thins the herd.   :twocents:

I've grown to love spring Turkey hunting.

I will be very bummed if they close it.

Interesting. I went on wdfw to see how much everything would add up to, and got this mssg when I tried to select a turkey tag. 🤔 they won’t even let u buy a tag. Doesn’t look promising, guys.

The likely reasoning why you can’t buy tags right now is because those working to print and mail these tags are NOT essential employees. They aren’t working, hence why they give you the covid 19 message.
