Wildfire Awareness Still Necessary as Additional Deer Season

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Wildfire Awareness Still Necessary as Additional Deer Seasons Open Sept. 24

SEPTEMBER 19, 2016

California’s 2016 deer season continues with the opening of the D3-D5, D8-D10, X8 and X10 Zones on Sept. 24. Drought and dangerous fire conditions persist in many areas of the state, and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) urges hunters to be mindful of wildfires and forest closures that could affect the area where they plan to hunt. CDFW does not refund tag fees due to wildfire closures.

CDFW does not close or open areas due to fires, but leaves that authority to incident commanders with CAL FIRE and the U.S. Forest Service.

Current information on forest closures can be found at the following links:

CDFW: wildlife.ca.gov/hunting/area-alerts
CAL FIRE: fire.ca.gov/general/firemaps.php
U.S. Forest Service: inciweb.nwcg.gov/closures
Hunters are encouraged to check these links frequently in order to obtain the most up-to-date information.
