We are hoping that by fall we can cross the border to moose hunt October 4-11.

I sent the outfitter 50% for my son and I; other guys sent theirs as well.

The outfitters everywhere will be in touch shape if hunting is Cancelled for non residents or residents as well.

Spring and summer fishing travel will tell the tale.

As I have seen on the this site, some of you in the business are bracing for cancellations.

I’m sure there’s a lot of us that are checking the news daily (multiple times ) hoping for some positive news on the border situation. I am supposed to be heading to the NWT In July. Plane tickets bought and a lot of money spent.. I am hoping for the best but at this point... I honestly don’t see it being open. I hope and pray that I’m wrong.

I am another with two Canadian hunts this fall, fingers crossed.

I've got NF moose booked for mid-September. I'm giving it a 50/50 chance personally. My outfitter swears that if something beyond my control cancels the hunt he'll end back my deposit. Fingers crossed here too.

I spoke to the outfitter today and she said as long as the number of cases go down like everywhere else in the world , hopefully all will go well in the fall.

We are all hoping thats the case. Our summer fishing season is just about certainly down the tubes. The Yukon outfitters I know think there is only a 25% chance they will be allowed to operate come August. The Territorial Govt has been slow to give us details about a re-opening strategy. They are even talking about NOT re-opening until a vaccine is available if you can imagine that. I think we will see the provinces open quite a bit differently and the Yukon will be one of the last to open. Our Liberal Govt has fumbled the ball on this from the very beginning so most of us are not to optimistic at this point. The hunting world will look a lot different once the dust settles. I know a lot of outfitters that wont be able to make it if they lose a years income.

With zero covid cases 13 days running, we're all on a positive note here on the Rock! Can't drop much lower than zero,eh?

Last I saw, the Yukon has no CV19 cases.

The border closure was just last week extended to June 21. I looked for articles about that. In an article, some "experts" were saying that they don't expect the border to open for "several more months".

I'm not blowing my Wyoming antelope points on a "maybe" (plus the exchange rates are terrible for us), so I am not applying this year. We'll just buy another preference point.

If you've booked a hunt and paid a deposit, I'd be really worried.
