So we have a bowfishing trip planned for 6 months. Going to Tennessee from Wisconsin. Do you all think the roads will be open in a week? We plan to bring all are food and drinks so no need to go into stores or anything while there. Just pay at the pump and the same hotel room everyday. Any thoughts from you?

Not only would your group risk exposure to COVID-19, if anyone already has it, the risk is extended to others. Each pit stop and the hotel would create an exposure risk to you and a spreading risk to others who make the same pit stop or stay in the same hotel.

Recently, the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department recommended the following for the upcoming spring turkey season: "Hunt only with people living under your roof, bring all the food and drink you'll need, sleep in a tent or your vehicle, carry plenty of hand sanitizer and use it. If you've been sick in the 2 weeks prior to your hunt, stay home. As always, safety first."

For the present, sounds like good advice for bowfishing too.

Well both places have confirmed cases near by. So no chance of bringing it from here or back home to a new area.
Staying in a cabin by our selves for a week. Payment is over the phone. So no contact there.
Food all from home. So no restaurants.
Gas station is our greatest chance of contact and i will do pay at the pump.
So i think i have the social distancing down.

Thats a pretty nice advice from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Please take the precautionary measures stated to avoid being infected. Stay safe!

That's awesome! How you liking the control of the new rig? I am upgrading in the next year or 2 and am torn between the dual mud rig and outboard/troller fan combo since we can't run airboats here. I hate the boat control of the troller fan, but I would really like to hit 40-45mph when traveling as well.

I like them alot. We run 10-15 mph a lot looking for good pockets to hit. Boat only does 33mph. Which is fast enough for me on most night. We fish lacrosse wi area a lot. If thats within your driving range you are more then welcome to tag along some time.
