Feedground Permit Sought

Alkali Creek Feed

Bridger-Teton National Forest has received a request from the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission to continue to use facilities at Alkali Creek Feedground for winter elk feeding and related management programs.  An environmental impact statement studying six existing and two proposed feedgrounds had been prepared in 2008 but a decision was not made on Alkali Creek feedground.  As a result, Bridger-Teton National Forest intends to supplement that EIS with information concerning changed circumstances.  The proposed action now is to authorize Game and Fish to continue to use of Alkali Creek Feedground for up to twenty years.  That use would include the maintenance of corrals, sheds and one hay stack-yard at the site. Comments concerning the scope of the Forest’s analysis of their proposal are to be received by May 23rd. Public comments will also be solicited upon release of the draft supplement to the EIS, expected in July 2012.

  • Shouldn’t my dogs be KEEPING their hair now? - November 21, 2014
    I don’t understand why it’s happening now, when the temperatures are dropping well below zero, but my golden retriever’s blowing her coat. In a big way. And it’s not just her. Our collie’s doing the same thing, and to a much bigger degree. At least the golden has some abilities that allow me to overlook […]
