Fire Restrictions Remain

fire ban

It should go without saying, but just to be sure, Bridger Teton National Forest is reminding the public – including hunters coming into the area – that fire restrictions remain in place on all public lands.  Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek explains that this means forest visitors cannot have open campfires just anywhere on the forest – it has to be in a permanent, pre-designated, provided spot in a developed campground.  Cernicek says quite simply, if you are not in a developed pay campground, you cannot have a fire.  She says the forest also has restrictions on the type of stove being used by campers.  It must have the ability to turn the fuel on and off. Cernicek points out that the fire danger here remains very high.  She adds that recreationists also need to be very aware if they are camping or hiking in recently burned areas because there are hazards associated with them including snags, or burned standing tress that could fall over.

  • Show me a line, I’ll show you a wind knot - August 26, 2014
    My fly line tippets never last me very long. Early in the season, I’ll put a new wind knot in a tippet on every cast. I’ve actually gotten two knots on a single cast before. I don’t even know how that’s possible, but I’ve done it. I’ve gotten wind knots in my leader, too, and […]
  • I’ll take a full-size truck, please - August 25, 2014
    I mentioned last week that I’ve had the opportunity for an extended test drive of a Nissan Titan, and I compared it to the smaller Nissan Frontier. The Frontier’s smaller size gives it a little better ability to get through tight spots and over rough roads, but I still like a full-size truck for hunting […]
