The application period is now open in Idaho for moose, sheep, and goats. Deer, elk, and pronghorn applications will open May 1.

Some wolf seasons are open year round. The rest will close during July but are open the other 11 months. You can take 15 wolves per year. Come and get them.

Big game hunting in Idaho is an excellent way to self isolate, one of the best.

Santiam, is the article wrong? Here's the quote:

Quote
The response that came Thursday, March 26, was not only to close all campgrounds, trailheads and day-use areas in the gorge – what are typically referred to as “developed recreation sites” – but to shut down all forest land completely.

Pawlitz said the strong response stemmed from the way the gorge is set up. Unlike other national forests in Oregon, there are no winding forest roads with dispersed campsites and remote hiking trails. Everything is accessed through busy highways, which forces a bottleneck at the entry points.

“People will try to use creative access points to trails,” like bushwhacking through the forest from the side of the road, Pawlitz said. “When we had to look at the big picture, we realized that there wasn’t a simple way to do a developed site closure.”

Same here. That's shooting the messenger. It's not the DNR's fault, it's a requirement enforced by Gov't to protect our societies. Still sucks, but not a reason to take it out on the DNR or to break any laws.

I really hope they don't shut us down. I look forward to my elk hunt every year!! Was hearing it on the radio today though. They are definitely going to shut down the national forests here PDQ... Sucks...

I don't see it and haven't heard it...Right now the beaches and forests are open,just the facilities are closed. In the beaches case,most facilities are also the access points. .If you can think of one rational reason to close the forests I would like to hear it. smile

Once the weather breaks,looks like Wednesday, I am going bear hunting. smile

Yes,but not until September..In its infinite wisdom ,ODFW has seen fit to offer 2 general season fall bear tags good for the entire state.. We have a trip planned and will stay there a week or two...With two tags I don't have to be so picky. wink

I have a SW spring tag so will be on the coast..

Good luck, I hope you get some nice days.

Spring, as you know, can be a real "bear" over that way.

I think it was around '93 or '94 in Humboldt county I counted 9 days of partial sunshine, if just a peek, out of 45 days in a row of rain and mist.

Enjoy the hunt, nice color phase bears over there in NorCal, imagine that holds true in SW OR too.

It would seem that hunting would be the ultimate act of social distancing.

Hunting is a go here in PA so far. They did close state run shooting ranges on state game lands due to no staffing and social distancing. Millions of acres open here.
I'll be hitting the ground hogs with my AR14 after some eggs and smoked salmon.

Tonight she said law enforcement could give up to $1000 fines to enforce social distancing. One sheriff already said they will not be writing tickets or arresting, only advising.


Got an email from the Michigan DNR saying spring turkey is open - and suggested limited travel.

State state allowed me to buy my license on April 1st knowing my address and that Area K is 200 miles away.

If I‘m suppose to limit travel then the state should have prevented me from getting that license.

If my motel is open I’m going. I’ll keep everything under the tonneau cover and put a pack of TP on the back seat. If I get stopped I’ll just say I’m taking TP to a family member who’s out. crazy

Both the WV and VA orders exempt outdoor activities from the shutdown. We'll continue to fish, and in a couple of weeks I'll be hitting the turkey woods. I suspect more hunters will be out with so many staying home from work and school. We'll see.

My IWLA chapter has issued rules for distancing and cancelled matches and other events.

My grandson is going for turkey tomorrow with my new Henry .410, on private land.
