A New Forest Merger In The Making?

National Forest

Even before a decision has been rendered on a proposal to merge the Bridger-Teton and Caribou-Targhee National Forests, meetings have been scheduled to discuss potential ways the Bridger-Teton and Shoshone National Forests might be able to share work or employees in order to be more efficient.  Those meetings are similar to ones that led to discussions of merging the Bridger-Teton and Caribou-Targhee last year.  A Bridger-Teton forest management team is to submit its recommendation on that proposal before traveling to Lander next week to examine a cooperative arrangement with the Shoshone.  The Bridger-Teton National Forest covers 3.4 million acres including 1.2 million acres of wilderness along Wyoming’s western boundary, and it adjoins the Shoshone National Forest southwest of Yellowstone.  Shoshone National Forest encompasses 2.4 million acres including 1.4 million acres of wilderness, and is considered the nation’s first national forest.

  • My hunting dog has been pouting - September 15, 2014
    I finally got my dog out for a day of hunting last week. It was almost too late. She’s been pouting for months, and I realized a while ago it was because I hadn’t gotten her on a bird since last November. I figured it out when I took her out to get her tuned […]
