 :z-twocents: :z-twocents:

This crisis can go a multitude of different ways ...the worst case scenario is ITALY ,SPAIN ETC ...well on it's way is nyc , where they busy doing a favorite socialist pastime of not accepting responsibility and blaming others ( with that said both the mayor and governor both insist on keeping the subway and bus system open ) those subways are so filthy and poorly ventilated,  they are a gigantic disease petri dish o


A second scenario , we let people go back to work and school in short order and we have issues like new Orleans pop up , all its gonna take is 1 sick kid to go.to school and the whole town is infected with multiple deaths , and by the time ...you get the drift

3rd scenario,  we lock down for a few more weeks , the stricken are identified , and the case load does a sharp decline....like what China is doing right now ...and they are whole RESPONSIBLE for this and should be held accountable ,

Going out of the house and going hunting , or whatever solo ...isnt going to do anyone or anything any harm , so long as you dont touch anything

It’s easy to look around and see how this crisis has brought out the worst in some people — from some entrepreneurs over charging to revelers crowding bars and restaurants despite public-health guidelines. But such irresponsible behavior, I believe, is more the exception than the rule. Time and again, individuals, organizations, and communities have demonstrated that the worst situations tend to bring out the best in people and the organizations to which they belong.  So I'm doing all I can to limit my exposure to others and I hope everyone else will, too, but I can see that there is a % of our population that is completely ignorant and irresponsible.  They're the ones who are exacerbating the problem and will ultimately be responsible for more people dying.  One of my buddies is always saying, "You can't fix stupid".  That's what we have to deal with, unfortunately.

This lengthy thread is a microcosm of society and I am very glad to see that the vast majority of folks are caring and considerate.

What kills me is the New Yorkers fleeing the city, some unknowingly infected, and spreading the virus all over the place.  Florida is placing many of them on quarantine, but one has to realize that is how it spreads.  A scary disease.  I’m going hunting alone and not stopping anywhere, coming and going.

New York City residents, not New Yorker's, please don't put us all in the same box. Thank you.

There is a fourth scenario to what OG mentioned and that is develop a vaccine and drugs to combat the symptoms/out breaks as they occur. The medical research is the US is some of the best in the world. The reports seem to indicate there is some hope in these areas.

 I think that in the midst of this virus taking over a lot of people have forgotten that other medical emergencies have not stopped. People are still having heart attacks, are in car accidents, having appendicitis, cutting a finger off with a skill-saw, getting bit by rattle snakes, falling & breaking a leg/hip, etc.

Sooner or later we open business and life goes forward. The virus will spread and we will have a big spike.  Early on they said pro a lying 60 percent get it. 
I will travel to hunt if I can do so with reasonable safety.  We will see what it looks like as my trip date approaches.  So far my travel plans hAve been a bust, the virus being a partial factor. 
Love to hunt the King of Spring!

In Summary:
1)  Listen to the professionals, not the naysayers (they might get you killed!)
2)  Be smart,... not stubborn, arrogant, or influenced by your politics
3)  Use your common sense!

I am hunting, I will limit interaction with strangers and social distancing is not very difficult.  I need to buy food regardless of weather I am on a hunting trip so will exercise distance at the grocery store.

Gas stations I rarely go into so paying at the pump I can keep from spreading or contracting with some wipes or gloves.  I can take pit stops to address the call of nature anywhere for the most part.

As far as the Dems, I could not agree more, but if you don't think repubs are a problem that is a whole other can of worms!

Be careful, hunt safe and enjoy the great outdoors!

I am staying away from people as much as possible. But real hard if you have to travel by plane. Tag out in Hawaii, more on that later. Head home tonight rest of hunting will be by auto. So have that figure out, I hope. And  if I screw up and infect someone else I also will maybe have paid the price. Because I am getting up in age and have extra health problems.
As far as both parties go I think they both better learn to give and take better

Hey what's that thing you call "common Sense", is that a new sub-species of turkey. You wouldn't have a picture of it would you? I don't believe I've seen many of those critters
