How many Tmenbers could not come up to Canada to hunt/fish/ ice fishing this season because of covid?
Don't let it go sideways because of politics

As much as I would love to I can't justify the cost so covid had nothing to do with it.


I do sign up to win free trips all the time though.

According to the bait shop and area guides I've talked to there has been a lot of people up here that had cancelled Canadian trips but still wanted to get away. The lakes were crowded compared to the last 15 years or so.

Covid has even affected, the numbers of Canadians going to camps this fall. Our deer camp usually has 8 to 10 hunters. This year will be 5or 6. All older folks. I think the younger hunters can't risk or can't afford to go. My son says he won't go because, he can't risk being tested positive, it would shut down his whole construction crew. They have been a very closed group this year. Our moose group went in two mostly family groups, no tags, so mostly a work party.old243

Should be a busy time up there for you folks when things open up again. Lots of pent-up demand!

North..
I had a very busy year scheduled up there this year. My busiest ever for upscale fishing groups. My fishing groups would have brought long over 130k American to Canada. May not seem like much but I am only one person. I cannot imagine overall what Canada lost.
This does not include fall bird hunting groups.
Someone mentioned a big year of recoup for Canada next year, Im not so sure it will be that great as most places I booked into flipped all current depositors to next year rather than refund. A lost year for Canadian outfitters for sure.

Osky is right, the vast majority of us rolled our bookings over to 21. Going to be lots of outfitters out of business by spring.

Im not sure I fully understand the question. No one could come up to Canada to hunt or fish this season??

Osky what type of business do you run a booking agency ?? I might be interested in talking to you if thats the case.

No one from the states that I know of were allowed across the border, to this day. Essential services only tho I do not know what those were.
I have handled fisherman across the border for decades. Sons of fathers who used me way back when and more and more business people call each year to have trips set up for exactly what they want. From the arctic to Costa Rica.
Id happily answer your questions or refer you to someone who could do so better than me.

I was up on the motorized edges there with people twice this summer, not my norm. Beautiful country but the steady stream of people, and I do mean steady, going by was surprising. Not my cup of tea.

Here in Missouri we barley shut down they said The state said nonessential workers dont go to work here is some subsidized unemployment get outside and enjoy the out doors they even waived fishing liscence requirements . The crush of people[ many from states that were shut down ] on the lakes rivers was unreal . If Canada had not closed the boarder you would of had a record year .

Absolutely. Between Minnesotans getting covid money and money saved not going on vacations south last winter combined with the hot economy I think Canada lost out big time. Instead here in northern MN I thought I would never see in my lifetime the number of atv and side by sides on the trails here this past summer. New boats everywhere. I guess people stayed home and spent.
I could not get across this fall for the snow goose migration with my groups either. I know safety but what a revenue loss up there.
