Public Service AnnouncementAnnual Shooting Restrictions Begin Monday on Pole Mountain (LARAMIE, Wyo.)

(LARAMIE, Wyo.)  March 28, 2014 – The Laramie Ranger District would like to remind the public that annual shooting restrictions will take effect on Monday, March 31.  These restrictions, which are authorized by Forest Service special order, prohibit the discharge of firearms within the Pole Mountain unit of the Medicine Bow National Forest from March 31 through Sept. 10.  Hunters who possess a valid Wyoming hunting license and are in pursuit of the species for which their license is valid are exempted.  This includes spring turkey hunters.

Discharging a firearm during the restricted period is prohibited to provide for public safety.  The Pole Mountain unit is one of the most highly used recreation areas on the National Forest.  Visitor safety is of the utmost concern and stray bullets pose an unnecessary hazard.  This is an annual renewal of a special order which has been in effect since the late 1990’s.

Wet Conditions and Violations Prompt Temporary Forest Road Closures

Public Service AnnouncementWet Conditions and Violations Prompt Temporary Forest Road Closures (LARAMIE, Wyo.)

(LARAMIE, Wyo.)  March 25, 2014 – A combination of wet conditions and illegal off-road travel are damaging roadbeds, as well as soil and vegetation resources, prompting the temporary closure of roads on the Medicine Bow National Forest’s Pole Mountain Unit between Laramie and Cheyenne. 

After Forest personnel monitored ground conditions over the past couple of weeks, Laramie District Ranger Frank Romero decided to temporarily close most Forest Service roads within Pole Mountain.  The closures, which will be implemented later this week, will not affect access to private lands, Forest Service permit holders, or users of the Tie City and Happy Jack Recreation Areas.  Until conditions improve, closures will prohibit wheeled motor vehicles, while still allowing non-motorized access for activities such as hiking, bicycling, hunting, skiing and rock climbing.
