I think the state has bigger problems than turkey seasons and no fishing:

Boeing sitting still
Paine field minimal commercial flights happening
Teachers and students at home for the year
Unemployment ratcheting up
Commercial crime rates increasing
Gas tax revenues plummeting
Elections approaching
Professional sports cancelled indefinitely
Sales tax revenues in the dumper
Just a few that come to mind

Yea, forget about your favorite boat ramp being open in 2020.

Correct GobbleDoc.  Am I mad we have no fishing or turkey..yes.  I am not worried about the China Cold...however the economic shut down could make this worse than the Depression.

To see what they can get away with before we start fighting back. You watch real statistics of this virus are gonna come out later on down the road and people are gonna laugh and then get pissed because of the repercussions we are having to deal with. My personal opinion let the thing run its course and if you get it and get over it good the next time it mutates and surfaces your body will know how to handle it. New York is kinda in that boat right now.

Jj. But I do believe the cure is more harmful that the problem.

A test of what? Compliance? If so, they got their answer because the sheeple have spoken.

I have a hard time calling folks who complied 'sheeple'...I see a lot of great Americans pulling together, looking out for one-another, sacrificing and serving their country.

I think some have forgotten this. It is also taught in hunter education.
 Some people believe hunting is a right similar to freedom of speech and freedom of religion. It isn't. Hunting is a privilege—one that can be taken away if you fail to meet certain standards. A right cannot be taken away from an individual; a privilege can.

You mean sacrificing:
Jobs,houses,cars,toilet paper,Hunting/fishing privileges,Retirement funds.
For everyone your saving there is thousands of peoples life your hurting by a complete economic shutdown.
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.

In some states it is a right, enumerated in the states' constitution.   There's been attempts to make it a right in our state's constitution but it doesn't get any traction.

Nice to see other states embracing hunting and upcoming seasons.

From Utah fish and game today.

I think the state has bigger problems than turkey seasons and no fishing:

Boeing sitting still
Paine field minimal commercial flights happening
Teachers and students at home for the year
Unemployment ratcheting up
Commercial crime rates increasing
Gas tax revenues plummeting
Elections approaching
Professional sports cancelled indefinitely
Sales tax revenues in the dumper
Just a few that come to mind

Yea, forget about your favorite boat ramp being open in 2020.

State income tax out of this whole thing. Didn’t cross my mind until now. You’re right, Olympia will have more ammo for this now. Socialism at its finest. Hand out stimulus money and institute a state income tax. Brilliant. I won’t be seeing a cent of stimulus money but I am 100% certain I am paying for everyone else’s.
