The Elk and Pony Fire closure is now open to foot traffic for Unit 39 sportsmen

The Boise National Forest just advised us of changes to the Elk and Pony fire complex closures.

The Forest Service has opened the area in Unit 39 to foot traffic. Please respect the closure areas and the motorized restrictions. 

A PDF map of the updated and reduced closure areas is available here.  Note, the area in Unit 43 still is closed to foot and vehicular traffic.


We plan to get this information updated in the Hunt Planner a.s.a.p.  We'll update this blog entry if more information is available.

This closure change has a significant impact on the Elk controlled hunt in 39-4, but all 39 sportsmen may be affected by this change.
