Is everyone getting a stimulant check? I might not qualify


I wasn't sure so I looked it up. Looks like direct deposit checks go out first. Then for mailed checks they are going to go lower income first all the way into September. They will mail 1200 per single filer, 2400 married joint filer, and I think 500 per eligible child.

See this for the who, how much, and when.
Here is a snap shot of who will receive
Single Filer: $75,000
Head of Household: $112,500
Married/Joint Filer: $150,000
At what income level will I not qualify for a stimulus check?

Single Filer: > $99,000
Joint Filer (no children): > $198,000

Thanks Neil. I'm already getting nervous about the cameras showing my da stumbling around the woods spooking turkeys. I don't think they will want to keep up with me to video, so unless I self incriminate and carry a camera, I should be able to tell any lies I want.

Hey Hawthorne 2 questions.
1. Where did you find that info? I believe you just want to read the order.
2. What is your opinion of pressure on public for opening day of turkey? I am hunting ZF but this is the first year I am hunting public, and have no idea what to expect for pressure.

Someone on another forum emailed the DNR. They said an hour drive from your home or 50 miles. These rules make no sense. If your property has a home and it’s your second residence your not allowed go there and hunt it. But if you don’t own it and just going there to hunt your ok

Last year was my first year turkey hunting public. I shot my bird opening day but that was a Monday. I didn’t see any other hunters. This year it’s a Saturday opener for the first time not sure how that will change the pressure

The guidance on the dnr site says "Yes, licensed individuals may still hunt while following social distancing guidelines. The executive order states that individuals may leave their home or place of residence, and travel as necessary, to engage in outdoor activity, including walking, hiking, running, cycling, or any other recreational activity consistent with remaining at least 6 feet from people outside an individual’s household". That was updated april 1. There were a lot of other questions under the hunting, fishing, camping ect areas that had changes specific to the new order and were updated april 11. Theres no mileage or time constraints that are posted on the dnr site

Uncle Lou: Good luck man! Hope you and the crew have a great time. You made me laugh out loud at the camera following you :lol: :lol: :lol:

I always thought if a camera followed me, it would have to be a bloopers episode or a comedy flick

Thanks for the info guys, I could not find anything on the DNR site either. It’s honestly hard to keep up with this stuff. All my spots are less then 50 so I have nothing to worry about.

Dnr site changed today, now it says "We are asking all park and trail users to stay local and not travel far distances for any activity, including ORV riding, fishing, boating, hiking or other outdoor recreation activities." They havnt defined what local or what a far distance is, I bet that's coming before Saturday tho

I see they've revised the dispersed camping statement to public lands instead of state owned lands, so I assume they intend to try and enforce it on national forest lands as well.

So when I started this thread I actually thought, Tony, Michael Shane, and I would find a bunch of turkeys and put together some brilliant plan, kinda like the one netguy wrote about on his 2018 three man rifle hunt (I hope I got that right, that was a good read).

Anyway, I think the plan is try to find some toms and try to shoot them in the face. Not having such good luck making this plan. It has been cold, and maybe they will heat up, but right now I am not feeling very brilliant. Oh, bumped a tom this morning, had no idea he was that close. Then bumped two more stumbling around. I should have filmed my scouting and have my opener filmed - the title could be how not to scout and hunt turkeys, by da

I feel it’s going to take a good week or so for the birds to start splitting up, which should in turn make them more visible. I am currently seeing groups of 3-5 strutters with hens, with a lone dominant bird off to the side with his own hens. Once guys hammer on them this weekend they will scatter a bit. Warmer temps should help too.
