Fall weather is in the air and it seems to be helping with fires. However, your vigilance is important as there is still plenty of fire danger! Today's map includes reductions to closures for the Tepee Springs Fire and Jay Point fire areas are reduced. The Lochsa South Complex fire closure has also lifted.
If you'd like to plan your hunt, however, we hope the maps below are useful.
These closure are available in higher detail to plan your hunt or outdoor excursions on the Idaho Hunt Planner Map Center.

Hunters and anglers: Here are the current Forest Service fire closure areas (As of 9/8/2015 10:30am MT). This a basic map graphic that we will periodically update. It's intended to give people an easy way to see if their hunting or fishing areas are blocked by fires or access closures. For the best available information, browse to Inciweb.
Note: There are smaller fires around the state that may have local road and trail closures not shown here. Fire maps also do not reflect private lands closed as a precaution during high fire danger.
