Lockdown Scorecard

FOR MANY OF US, staying away from people isn’t exactly a hardship. Yet there does seem to be more competitio­n in the woods and on water. All told, Covid-19 measures have been a mixed bag for outdoorsme­n. Here are some ups and downs:

- —Dave Hurteau

Resident hunting and fishing license sales: way up. It’s not a long-term recruitmen­t strategy, but we’ll take it.

Nonresiden­t sales. One week of hunting; two of quarantine.

Odds of seeing a whooping crane, as staff cuts at zoos have slashed fall releases of the rare birds.

Gun sales: Also way up. After all, the apocalypse does seem increasing­ly imminent.
