Yellowstone Fire Danger Drops to Low

fire-low

Yellowstone National Park Tuesday afternoon reduced its fire danger rating from high to low following the onset of cooler temperatures and some rain showers.  Park Spokesman Al Nash says the reason for the move came primarily as a result of the combined fall conditions in the park.  However, he quickly adds that visitors still need to be careful with fire in the park and surrounding areas.  “While conditions are less conducive to a fire getting out of hand, we can’t ever rule it out.”  As such, he says the fires that have been burning for the last month are not out and will not be declared so until they’ve been covered by a significant snowfall for some period of time.  Meanwhile, the fire danger rating remains high in Grand Teton National Park, Bridger Teton National Forest and Teton County, but fire officials believe the moisture and cool temperatures here will also enable a down-rating of the danger here before long.

  • Estimating range on waterfowl is easy - October 22, 2014
    If you’ve done any goose hunting, you’ve probably heard the term “skybusting.” You may know it means shooting at birds that are out of your shotgun’s effective range, but do you know if you’re guilty of it?
