    state shut down, what wuold you do in my shoes

    I had planned on going to the BWCA in northern Minnesota next week for some fishing.

    the problem is, with the state shut down, they have decided that the issuing of licenses is non-essential, while enforcement of licenses remains essential. (to make them look irreplaceable IMO)

    So would you:

    1 cancel the trip
    2 go anyway. don't fish, but enjoy the wilderness
    3 screw them. fish illegally and if fined, ignore it/fight it
    4 screw them. fish illegally and if fined, pay it.

    I'd say 4. What are the chances you'll get caught? And the fine isn't even that heavy. If you go illegally, though, be prepared to face the consequences. Better assuming you're paying the fine and being pleasantly surprised, after all.

    Go and have fun without the fishing. If while there you get a "vibe" that you will be cool/ok to fish? Risk it. If not? Don't. Have fun dude

    Does these kind of laws actually stop anyone from fishing in the first place?

    I say go fishing.

    Do not fish without a license. Especially if you're from out of state. The game warden can confiscate all of your prized tackle, as well as giving you a large fine. Change destinations.

    Is it just a fine? How large? If they ain't gonna take any of your stuff (which government likes to do), and it's just a bit of a fine; I would probably take the chance. Then come election, I'd vote against all the incumbents.

    If they are shut down, who's going to write you a ticket.
