New Fires Erupt In Yellowstone

Druid Fire

Yellowstone National Park reported two new fire starts in the park’s back country yesterday – believed to be the results of recent lightning strikes.  The Alum Fire is several miles west of Mud Volcano near Mary Lake while the Alder Fire is located on The Promontory at the south end of Yellowstone Lake.  Park officials say neither fire poses a threat or impact to visitors and each of the fires involves less than an acre.  Meanwhile, the Druid Fire spotted Friday on Druid Peak above the Lamar Valley continues to burn on three acres as a managed fire, and the Snake Fire continues to burn on the Yellowstone/Bridger Teton National Forest boundary as a managed fire.  It currently involves about 200 acres of heavy dead and down timber. Yellowstone officials raised the fire danger rating in the park yesterday to “very high,” but no restrictions have been put into place as yet.

If you’re a predator hunter or a trapper, that’s your cue. The pelts are coming into their prime right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re at […]

  • Tame that recoil - November 25, 2014
    You don’t have to put up with nasty recoil when you’re hunting. Even if you’re hunting our state’s bigger animals, like elk, moose, or even bison, today’s technology can take a lot of the sting out of your hunting rifle. A friend told me he developed a bad flinch while sighting in his .300 Win […]
