    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

    During the "shut-down" of the Government in the mid-90's, My wife drew a Wyoming moose tag for area#15 (between Grand Teton & Yellowstone national parks. They closed the only road to the area (moran junction) and without access, my wife's tag went unfilled and we both lost our vacation time for the hunt. To say I was pissed, would be an understatement. I still hate Newt Gingerich!

    I would of been well beyond pissed too! They shouldnt be able to close roads. If they want to shut down they need to start at the top with the president, congress, senate, and house. If they were doing the job they were elected to do we wouldnt have this problem. besides they all have plenty of money and most if not all of them could live just fine if they never got another pay check.

    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.
