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.

    This shutdown is such a joke. One example: They have went out and barricaded tons of boat ramps that sit unmanned year round, so normally they don't cost anything to operate but since the gov is "shut down" we have to spend millions (thinking nationwide here) to go close down these boat ramps.

    We need some serious change in this country...

    Well, according to the BLM website all BLM lands are CLOSED to the public and outfitters with permits cannot operate! Looks like I'm screwed for Elk hunting next week (I hunt BLM) Unless those worthless S.O.B.'s in Washington do something very soon. I have my Grandson coming out for his first Elk hunt this year....Obama & Biden and the Democrats and the Republicans are all to blame.
