Tree Hunters Cautioned

snowy forest road

This week, many will be heading into the forest in search of that perfect Christmas Tree.  As they do, Bridger-Teton National Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says forethought needs to be given to the conditions they will encounter as they drive up into the mountains.  She says road conditions differ depending upon where on the forest you will venture into.  In some of the higher country, she says, there are impassable roads that have already been drifted shut with snow, and there will be icy roads in other locations. With that in mind, Cernicek says people should not venture out unless they are prepared for the conditions and any potential mishap they might encounter while out. Says Cernicek: “We absolutely encourage those who recreate on the Bridger-Teton to be able to take care of themselves, and to self-rescue should the need come.”  She urges people to always be prepared with light, a heat source and additional food – and make sure people know what your travel plans are. Cernicek also reminds those on those forest roads to take it easy and watch for people on foot, people on snow machines, or wildlife.  Tree permits are available at any forest office or the interagency visitor center on North Cache Street and must be in hand when tree harvesting.

  • Don’t commercialize hunting - November 20, 2014
    The state of New Jersey is dealing with a huge whitetail deer overpopulation problem. To get more people to get out and hunt those deer, and hopefully bring the population down to a more manageable level, the state is toying with the idea of allowing the commercial sale of meat from wild deer. It’s a […]
