Turkey Season - Next Yer
« on: April 02, 2020, 09:16:32 AM »
I just found out that the farm I had permission to turkey hunt on would prefer I not use them due to all the social distancing.  I can sure understand it and it disappoints me but in no way can I be angry. 

Virginia has a Stay at Home order in effect til June 1.

This will be two years in a row I have missed the spring season.

I don't even see the owner's house where I go turkey hunting. If I skip this year, it would be cuz I don't feel like getting up that early.

I do not see the owner either but he has 4 children under 12 years old and he is a rather paranoid type person anyway.  He leases his acres to a real farmer to use and he is trying to prevent the lease holder from trying to farm it out of fear.  I would say he and his wife are hoarders too.....just the types.  Funny they will let us hunt and welcome venison when offered at the end of deer season.

I'm debating whether or not to go myself.  When I go I stay with my sister & her husband, hate to risk carrying anything down there, and then of course the river is up so hunting is going to be a challenge, and it's a 200 mile drive, and . . . .

Need to decide pretty quick, my tag is only good for April 6-10.

Our wonderful state government just announced all state lands are closed to hunting and fishing.  Huh?  On the occasions when I've gone to any of our state lands for those activities, there's rarely another soul in sight.  I think this is just a fine excuse for the goofy lady appointed to lead our DNR to shut things down.  Funny, I get the monthly DNR newsletters and she never, ever says anything about hunting - usually talks about birdwatching and wildflowers.  The last guy we had under the previous administration was awesome - gotta get the Chicago Democrats a one-way ticket outta this state.  I want to send them to Madison so Yari can talk some sense into them!

this is a huge time for LOTW river walleye. just some monsters are caught going to spawn. all the boat landings are closed. folks are absolutely PO'ed.

I also saw Canada has no plans to open the border until july at the earliest. my muskie trip could be off. wait until Canada realizes how much fishing revs they will lose. there will be a lot of bankruptcies up there

good luck to all

Just made the call to skip the gobbler chase this year.  I usually stay with family when I go down there, just don't want to risk taking something to them or stress them out worrying about it.

Hunting and fishing are usually solitary events (or just a buddy or two together)....the US Corp of Engineers have closed the vast majority of boat ramps on our lake.  Most of these ramps never see 10 people per day...

my ramp is busy on opener and not much after that. apparently they think all the fish have been caught?

so far, the WI election is still happening Tuesday. I can't believe that? I already voted and picked up my ramp pass for the year.

I have some places here in Md that I can hunt but, was asked by 2 land owners to please not hunt their places. They will not allow any activities until this mess is over- I told them I understand and would not hunt. But my best three spots are open unless something changes. I am worried that I will not be able to hunt in Pa. We have a camp way out yonder but I am concerned they will close hunting for non residents. Fingers crossed.
