    Question Will the coronavirus affect outdoor recreation in America in any way, shape or form?

    Camping, hiking, ATVing, hunting*, fishing, gun dog training, horseback riding, boating? These activities generally don't require people to get too near one another (except on party boats for angling) but I was wondering if fish and game regulations will have special modifications during this pandemic. Will the law restrict or shut down any of these things because of COVID 19? What are your thoughts on this?

    *dove hunting is highly social in Southern states but hopefully Corona will have died out by summer's end for the upcoming 2020 dove opener. The heat will hopefully kill this bug off for good by then. Many people here are probably now worrying more over empty shelves at Walmart than fun outdoors things.

    It will depend on how the virus progresses in the next few weeks. If it continues to spread, I suspect staying at home will become a mandatory requirement.

    Wife and I shoot USPSA pistol--local matches have been canceled, and several major matches have been re-scheduled out into the fall.

    Oregon Governor has closed all state parks, and cities on the coast are closing beach access. Schools closed so everyone decided to
    go to the beach or go hiking. Trout season, Spring Chinook are going to kick in soon. Guessing it will kill the charter boat business,
    but no idea beyond that.

    Florida just shut down all state parks. I expect county and city will follow suit.

    I do not plan on avoiding the woods. Something that i always enjoyed since i was a kid. Got home from school, Id grab the air gun out i went. Then when i got my hunting license i was out hunting for whatever was in season.

    I have access to some private land in East Texas if I get too stir crazy.
    Seems the woods would be the safest place to be.
    Camping and hiking was the original social distancing activity.
