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.

    The Wyoming Cowboy football team will have one more practice before Saturday’s spring game.  The major focus this spring, at least for the offensive line, is to be more physical and deliver the blows.  As offensive line coach Scott Fuchs tells the unit, “be the hammer, not the nail”.  That’s a difference in philosophy between […]
  • Find some new places to fish - April 16, 2014
    Instead of fishing the same old places this spring, do something different. Find a new honey hole. You don’t have to go to the same place every time you go fishing. When you find a good spot to fish, it’s nice to know you can go back there and catch fish. But if your honey […]
