Sunday marks the start of winter travel restrictions on much of the Jackson Ranger District on the Bridger-Teton National Forest.  Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says these restrictions include areas of crucial wildlife winter range in Teton County that are closed to all human presence; including Josie’s Ridge, the K-C Trail, Wilson Canyon, portions of the Gros Ventre Drainage and slopes above the Putt-putt Trail in Cache Creek Canyon. Cernicek says these winter wildlife restrictions are issued each year to allow the wildlife there to forage, rest and be those areas without the interruptions from humans. Additionally, Cernicek says those heading into areas that are still open need to be ready for rapidly changing conditions. Cernicek says, “A lot of our roads could be drifted with snow or frozen, impassable due to landslides or flooded out as a stream gets dammed up and then washes over a roadway; and so we really encourage visitors to the forest to always be prepared for the unexpected.” Cernicek urges those venturing into the forest this changeable time of year to let someone know where they are going and when they expect to return.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
