    Gov Shutdown and Federal hunting lans

    So does anyone know the ins? Most federal websites are shutdown and the BLM plan has noting in it about hunting.

    So...can we still hunt on National Forest and BLM lands?

    I just called the DOW here in Colorado. They said as long as there's no gates up it's ok to hunt/fish the land.

    Your state may be different.

    Our National Wildlife Refugees are now officially closed, just got the email. Still waiting to find out about our National Forest and National Rec land.

    Just got an email that was sent out to Conoco Phillips employees concerning activities on Federal lands. The email said that hunting and fishing were not allowed as long as the shut down was in effect. I have an elk tag in Wyoming and hope to be able to use it, but the unit is BLM and it does not look promising.

    Did some more checking and found the following information. You will be able to hunt and fish on Federal lands that are not developed recreational sites. BLM lands will be open. You can check on other areas by going to www.doi.gov/shutdown. This site gives the activities that are allowed during a shut down.

    Would be pretty messed up if you missed a hunt over that

    Sounds like a poachers dream with the rangers sitting at home. Hope they figure that crap out in DC.

    I just can't see not hunting OUR public lands, just because a bunch of idiots in D.C. don't know how to do their jobs. It's probably in my best interest that I'm done hunting out West for the year.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.
