I am, if they'll let me into Canada in October and Colorado (stupid hippies) in November.

Planning on heading to Montana first week of novemeber for my first elk trip. I haven’t heard I shouldn’t come, so I am going.

I have flown and travelled since this whole covid thing came out, so it doesn’t scare me at all. I am
Not concerned about flying to Montana nor driving home with my meat for the two day drive in a rental. Plan to fly to NO at end of August for my wife’s semi annual doctors appt too, we just aren’t going to stop living confused2

I am still going hunting like I always have, but mine are all lease hunts or invites so far. I am lucky in that I can walk out the front door and start hunting without having to see another person here on my place for whitetail. My mule deer hunt will be a little different in that we stay in a hotel in town for 18 days, so that will be where we have to be a bit more careful due to most of us being in the high risk category due to age or health issues. The places that I go hunt on invites may be different this year but still plan on going if they ask me to. I am sure they will do things a bit different though. I put in for as many WMA hunts as I normally do and even added a couple of new ones this year. If I could find a reasonably priced mule deer hunt out of state or in state(MLD) I might go this year.

I still plan on going to a couple of dove hunts that have been organized by a veterans group. I have a pheasant hunt invite in Kansas, but I will wait on making a decision on that until the week before to see the long range weather forecast,

Still doing black bear and Coues whitetail here in AZ. Still planning to go to KS in early December for whitetail. Still planning to hunt Carmen Mountain whitetail in Texas in December. Fingers crossed for Coues in Mexico in January but we'll see.

In all cases I am hunting solo, with friends, or am friends with the outfitter.

Hope you get a big ol' speedgoat

Wife and I saw some absolute toads between Logan and Clovis coming back home last Thursday. I bet we saw 20 of them over 15".

Headed to Montana for a back country elk hunt first week of November. Plan on camping on the way up and back to avoid hotels and stay safe as possible. Just retired so I plan on being at the lease a lot this year as well. At least that is the plan for now. Who knows if they start shutting states down, plans could change.

Hope you have a good heater bud. Can’t speak for Montana but Colorado in November is Cold!

Should be safer in the hills or mountains rather than the city, fewer people around. No plan to hunt out of state but would if the opportunity did come up.

Pending government some how blocks us. Full steam ahead. All the vacation time has been reserved for Nov./Dec. May have to make some minor adjustments. We will be staying in Texas but I travel for work. I have drove across country and fly too. Seems the level of anxiety around corona in state/area dependent. Some areas are still pretty laxed but others not so much. Some food are down right scared. Anyway spend all year waiting for the fall and not gonna stop now. Fortunately hunting at a fundamental level is the truest form of social distancing!
