IDAHO FISH AND GAME
HEADQUARTERS NEWS RELEASE
"The Forest Service has reported to us that fire conditions are extremely volatile out there," Kelton Hatch, Magic Valley regional conservation educator said. "Hunters need to adhere to the rules and think before acting. If someone starts a fire out there, the person responsible could be held liable for the cost of putting out the fire and the loss of resources and be arrested and fined."
"We will have thousands of people out pursuing game animals this season,"
Hatch said. "All it takes is one misguided step from one person to close
down a whole area for the season or until snow flies."
