The USFS Nez Perce - Clearwater Forests have made significant openings to the forests. They were able to open up areas because of cooler, damper weather and good progress on those fires. However, we ask everyone to be extremely careful out there as fire activity may cause slowdowns. Always respect the closure boundaries for everyone's safety.
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.
To add layers of information to the advanced map, click on it and go to the upper left corner and click on the “Turn Layers/On Off” menu. Check the boxes of the layers you want to add. Use the scroll bar on the right and scroll down to find "Wildfire & Closure Related Layers."
Hunters and anglers: Here are the current Forest Service fire closure areas (As of 9/3/2015 4:15pm 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.
