Hunters Affected by Shutdown

Many hunters along with duck hunters will see a direct impact from the Governement shutdown.   The shutdown forces all government and federal workers to go home without pay.  This also goes for USFWS workers who help provide hunting opportunities.

Across the nation, thousands of Federal public land areas will be closed prohibiting hunters from accessing.  Contact your State’s Wildlife Department before heading out to your spot.  To read more, click here:  http://www.doi.gov/shutdown/fy2014/upload/FWS-Fact-Sheet.pdf

We don,t need the federal fish and wildlife service at all. All their land should be turned over to the state game and fish department Every state has their own game dept. how many layers of the same thing do we need. Last week end they told 12 year old kids they could not hunt fed land for the youth season that is only for a couple days each year
