EARLY HUNTING SEASON FIRE SAFETY

08/30/2012

It's hot, it's dry and wildfire prevention must be the top priority for all early season hunters in Montana. “Governor Schweitzer’s Executive Order Declaring a Statewide Fire Emergency speaks to the dire conditions Montana is currently dealing with” said Fish Wildlife and Parks spokesman Ron Aasheim. "While FWP has not closed or delayed any hunting seasons as early season hunters take to the field we are especially concerned about accidental fire starts caused when dry vegetation accumulates in a vehicle's skid plate or catalytic converter," Aasheim said.. "Hot temperatures have cured summer's lush vegetation, increasing the likelihood of grass fires."
