According to information released by the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife, the reason for canceling the annual Turkey Hunt for youth slated for April 4-5 and the spring bear hunt, is travel.

Fish and Wildlife officials are concerned that hunters traveling to areas of the events might help spread the COVID-19 virus. The Department says on their website they will reassess on April 6 whether to re open several "impacted" hunting areas and will re-examine several other hunting seasons coming up.
