BTNF Begins Accepting Credit Cards

BTNF

Now you can enjoy natural products with plastic thanks to a decision by the Bridger-Teton National Forest to accept credit and debit cards to pay for firewood, post-and-pole permits, Christmas tree permits, recreation passes and map sales.  Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says as such, Bridger-Teton becomes one of the first forests to begin accepting credit cards for such activities.  She says hopefully this added convenience will be very noticeable for Forest customers.  She says, “It’ll reduce some of the wait time and it will speed things along as folks come in, whether it’s to buy their Christmas tree permits or their recreation passes and we’ll be able to take care of them in an efficient manner.”  What’s next?  Cernicek says this could be the first step toward more a convenient way to do business on such an expansive forest.  She says while the Forest cannot now allow for people to obtain those permits on line, but potentially down the road as the Forest Service gets additional secure systems in place that could be something that may be offered.  Already, Cernicek says instead of mailing payments for such things as range permits or special uses owed to the forest, they can be paid online using a credit card.  Acceptable plastic cards include credit/debit cards include Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover, among others.

    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 […]
  • Cowboy O-Line Being Told To Be the Hammer, Not the Nail [AUDIO] - April 16, 2014
    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 […]
