    Default fedral lands?

    In WI the DNR has been reopening boat launches and gates to lands. I talked to a warden today who said that most of the federal lands were bought with a mix of state money any way. He said they will not enforce any violations for trespassing on fed lands as long as it was legal to hunt there before the close. What is happening around you?

    Sabine, Cameron Prairie and Lacassine NWR are closed until further notice. With all of our fresh water the skrimps and crabs will be thick in the refuge with nobody to catch them.

    With the storm in the Gulf, I might have to go to Lacassine this weekend to fish, I'll just wear my RTF cap so no one bothers me. Cocodrie is loaded with shrimp right now, they are catching them with scoop nets!

    the NWR in AZ are reportedly closed, but since waterfowl season doesnt open till the end of the month it doesnt matter that much, the budget cuts were so deep they were staffed with bare minimum personnel anyways, and maintenance was severely lacking
