I saw that and was thinking of the guys that had hunts and fishing trips planned. Hope you and they make it.

I feel ya! I have five hunts booked this year and they're probably all in danger. One has already been cancelled and the next one is scheduled for the middle of next month. Have my fingers crossed.

My cousin and I have been talking about going on a Canadian fishing trip for years, but never pulled the trigger. A month ago, after going to the NRA show in Harrisburg, we planned a trip for the end of June. We put down the deposit, ordered our passports, and started looking into buying new gear. We've been excited for weeks. It would just be our luck if we couldn't go now.

I hear ya on that one. We’re in the same boat here. Both hunting since we were 12 and never hunted out of PA. Finally bit the bullet and decided to do a bear hunt as a “honeymoon” from our 2018 wedding and now this. Fingers crossed everyone. Be safe out there.

hopefully they will get a grip on this virus and things will get back to normal and the guys that have out of state and out of country hunts can take them.

PJ Media has a piece on Trudeau regarding the border closing that may be of interest to those concerned about being able to cross. How true it is? It has exceptions and US citizens are one of them. ????

I know of two different guys that got burned by the Frenchies when the bottom fell out of the Quebec caribou hunts. The herd collapsed, the season was cancelled, and their deposits were lost. I think those outfitters knew that it was the end of caribou hunting, and weren’t concerned about future bookings. They also knew that a US hunter wouldn’t have a lot of luck using legal action in THEIR court system.

The nature of the problem here is different, hopefully short lived, and gets a different response from the Canadians.

If I was betting, I’d say hunting and fishing trips won’t happen this season.

I've seen and read different stories that we could be dealing with this virus for the next 12-18 month. I have a Newfoundland moose hunt scheduled for mid September and I'm not worried about cancellation yet but I have put off buying plane tickets until things start to calm down. Thankfully I have confidence in the outfitter that we can work something out if this season is a bust.
