Hunters Urged To Be Fire Safe

As hunting season begins throughout Wyoming, officials are sounding emphatic cautions to sportsmen.  The obvious pointers are to observe the fire restrictions in the area being hunted – meaning no open fires are permitted in western Wyoming at this time.  However, Ray Hageman of Wyoming Game and Fish says there are other considerations that may not be immediately thought of.  He says hunters should not use steel-jacketed ammunition, ammunition with steel core-components, or tracer rounds.  Hageman says while using an ATV can be fun and efficient, it should be equipped with a spark-arrester – and if being parked off-road, be sure it is not parked in tall grass where a hot muffler or catalytic converter can easily spark a fire.  Hageman adds that hunters should also pack a shovel, a water can, and a fire extinguisher to be ready to deal with an unexpected situation.  Hunters are also being asked to be very watchful and quickly report any wildfires to authorities.
