How is everyone handling deer camp this year? We formulated our plan last evening. We usually have 9-10 people in camp each year and we come from various places around the state. We have two guys over 80 so that is an issue that has weighed heavily on our decision making. We considered not having it this year but this camp has been together since before I started hunting 38 years ago. And I'm one of the young guys. That's a hard tradition to break. So our plan is to stay in our respective "bubbles". We have a cabin, two houses and a camper at our disposal all within 15 minutes of each other for sleeping. I get the camper to myself since I come from a high risk area. We will eat breakfast and supper together in a large heated garage on my cousin's property, within our bubbles but socially distanced. There will be no card table this year. Evenings will be spent either around a bonfire or in the heated garage, socially distanced. There will be no trips to the bar for the Friday Night Fish Fry, the buck boards or the Packer game. Maybe this is too much but I wasn't going to go unless these things were agreed upon. I don't want to learn of a death between Thanksgiving and Xmas. Or worse yet, be responsible for it. 

So what's your plan? Doing something similar? No change of plans? Think I'm nuts because COVID is going to disappear after the election?

Very well said BT. Our camp has gotten smaller over the years by attrition unfortunately. This year looks a to be even smaller with some choosing to hunt from home. Looks like about 6 guys.

Na BT, you’re not nuts, you are doing what’s right for your situation.  This will be a deer camp to remember for you for reasons you wouldn’t normally think of.  My son got his first deer during the youth hunt this year and I made sure to get some success pics with masks on.  We will look at that pic mixed in with the others every year and remember this year for his first deer and COVID.

Nothing different in our deer camp this year. We have 3 guys in the 30s 1 in the 40s and the rest are 60 or above. Theres no social distancing in our cabin not enough space. Most of us have all been together at various times through out the summer and early fall. Got 4 guys sleeping in one room and 3 another and 2 in my brothers big snowmobile trailer he converted in to a place to sleep last deer season since we ran out of room in our cabin. Cant wait look forward to it every year and now I got my son joining too. We do the gun hunt in the U.P to at our camp.
