      Anyone else had their hunting season totally impacted by fires this year? I have had 2 wilderness areas closed, 1 entire hunting unit shut down, and almost all the public land around me is smokey.

      We did get 1/2″ of rain the other night, so I hope that will help things out there. If this drought doesn’t let up we are in for some real changes.

      northwestern CA had a half dozen fires, and this spot in northeastern Oregon I was heading to is on fire. I don’t know about Colorado.

      Colo. Has the least fires but it is smokey over into Utah and Wyo. from those western fires. Just hoping there’s no smoke when I get to this mountains.

      Getting some good rain right now in northern Idaho that should help the fire fighters and the hunting.

      My elk hunting area is south of John Day OR. I am just hoping my buddy gets to keep his house.

      Washington State is getting hit the hardest. Drove back from Seattle last week and we could hardly breathe, friends are having homes threatened but so far no loses among people I know. Air quality has been bad in central Montana but rain yesterday helped. Lots of local closures, but nothing state-wide. Check with FWP online.

      Ptaylor there is over a 100,000 acres that will not be available this season until the snow falls I am afraid.
