No Public Meetings For Winter Plan

YNP snowmobile

Now that Yellowstone National Park’s final winter use plan has been released for public review and comment, don’t look for the kind of presentations seen after the previous releases of the various alternatives for the plan.  Spokesman Al Nash says the next step in the process will be to write a proposed rule which would implement the preferred alternative.  That will be published and subject to a sixty-day public review and comment period.  Once those comments are reviewed, a final decision on the environmental compliance will be made followed by the signing of a record of decision by the Intermountain Regional Director and the publishing of a final rule.  The new plan is to become effective during the 2014-2015 winter season.  The quest for a new winter use plan for the park has been ongoing for the last dozen years.

But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
