Fall Creek Road Closes

December 17, 2012 Bridger Teton National Forest, Jackson Hole, Teton County No Comments
National Forest

A portion of the Fall Creek road accessing a favorite local Christmas tree harvesting area closed to wheeled motor vehicle travel today. Closure gates are located at the south end of Red Top and just past Dog Creek Ranch near Highway 26/89.  Fall Creek road remainedopen longer than many other areas of the forest due to the lack of snow on the road, but now the snow is sufficiently deep there that vehicles risk becoming stuck.  Forest officials say the closure of the road has been made to ensure safety and prevent damage to the road surface.  However, snowmobiling, skiing, snowshoeing and other non-motorized winter activities are permitted along the road.  Further winter travel information is available to the Bridger-Teton National Forest website.

IGBC Grizzly Bear Hunting Position Statement

In recovered and delisted grizzly bear populations, the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee (IGBC) supports the use of regulated hunting following the principles of the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation (Geist et al. 2001) as one approach to help manage numbers and distribution of bears to promote coexistence and help minimize conflict.  Although specifics regarding the hunting of a recovered grizzly bear population will be unique to the ecosystem and legal jurisdictions involved, IGBC supports hunting regulations that reflect the best available science, are adaptable to changing factors, are established in a public process, and are consistent with standards in the ecosystem specific Conservation Strategies[1].

    Thank goodness for non-hunting spouses. If it weren’t for our better halves, most of us who hunt would be completely unprepared for fall holidays.
