Winter Regs Take Effect

The Caribou-Targhee National Forest winter travel regulations for the Teton Basin Ranger District have gone into effect now.  Caribou-Targhee Spokesman Lynn Ballard says the official travel map for the Teton Basin Ranger District describes winter travel opportunities for both winter cross-country use, and winter designated routes.  This map along with the snow machine map produced by the Idaho State Parks and Recreation shows winter recreationalists groomed cross-country ski trails and snow machine trails, areas with seasonal closures, and areas closed to protect wildlife winter range or designated Wilderness.  Ballard says maps and additional information may be obtained through the Teton Basin or adjacent Ranger Districts.  Unless designated or authorized, roads maintained by Fremont, Madison, Teton Counties, and plowed public roadways through state and federal lands are not open to snow machine use.  Additionally, Ballard emphasizes that the Jedediah Smith Wilderness is closed to snow machine use at all times.  Users recreating near winter range and wilderness areas should note that entering one of these areas is a violation of Federal Regulation and subject to fines up to $5,000.00 and or six months in jail.

    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 […]
