Is the government good for anything? I'm fuming right now, I just got an email from Field and Stream magazine telling about how the government shutdown will affect sportsmen. It says that as a result of the shutdown all federally owned lands will be closed. BS, I thought. There's no way they could even enforce it if it were true since all non-essential government ops are shut down. WRONG. I pulled up the Department of the Interior website and it expressly says hunting and fishing are no longer permitted on federal lands during the shutdown, however law enforcement will NOT be shut down. This should be a crime, we've already paid for these lands with our tax and duck stamp dollars and we don't need to pay anybody to hold our hands while we're accessing these lands. What a friggin' joke!
