Fire Danger Still Very High

fire-very high

The recent storms through the area brought some welcome, although all to temporary moisture to the Teton Interagency Fire area, but not enough to douse the fire danger. Teton Interagency Fires point out that once warmer, drier weather moves back in later in the week, the fire danger will be just as high as it was.  Then too, along with the rain came lightning and new fire starts in both Grand Teton National Park and the Bridger-Teton National Forest.  Teton Interagency Fire crews responded yesterday to another start on the Big Piney Ranger District called the Horse Creek Fire. The ¼-acre fire started from lightning that passed over the area Monday.  Lightning fires can often go undetected, smoldering in a tree or in duff until heated by sun or fanned by wind. Fire crews will be on the lookout for smokes from lightning “sleeper” fires as conditions dry.  At this time the fire danger is still classified as “Very High.”  Meanwhile: recent rainfall received over most of Yellowstone National Park has increased fuel moistures to the point that the prohibition on open campfires there has been lifted; although they remain in place in Grand Teton National Park, Bridger Teton National Forest and Teton County.

    Where did that good old, brown, tan and black camo pattern go? You know what I mean. The pattern duck and goose hunters used to wear all the time. It was just splotches of dark brown, light brown and a little bit of black. Big splotches. I’ve been complaining for years that you can’t find […]

    The Wyoming Cowboys much-anticipated opener of the Craig Bohl era is this Saturday in Laramie.  For the first time since 1997, the Cowboys play Montana, an FCS program out of the Big Sky Conference.  The Grizzlies come in as one of the top FCS teams in the country, ranked preseason #5.  They also return a […]
  • Show me a line, I’ll show you a wind knot - August 26, 2014
    My fly line tippets never last me very long. Early in the season, I’ll put a new wind knot in a tippet on every cast. I’ve actually gotten two knots on a single cast before. I don’t even know how that’s possible, but I’ve done it. I’ve gotten wind knots in my leader, too, and […]
  • I’ll take a full-size truck, please - August 25, 2014
    I mentioned last week that I’ve had the opportunity for an extended test drive of a Nissan Titan, and I compared it to the smaller Nissan Frontier. The Frontier’s smaller size gives it a little better ability to get through tight spots and over rough roads, but I still like a full-size truck for hunting […]
