Dawson County Commissioners have decided to ban all campfires in the county due to continuing drought and fire danger, so Fish, Wildlife & Parks will follow suit and ban campfires at Makoshika State Park effective immediately. Signage at the park will reflect the change.
Prior to today, the park had been the only remaining site in FWP’s Region 7 where campfires were allowed in established rings, so this change means that no campfires are allowed at any FWP sites throughout Region 7. Stage 1 fire restrictions are in effect across Region 7, meaning that people cannot build or maintain a campfire or smoke – except within an enclosed vehicle or building, a developed recreation site, or while stopped in an area at least three feet in diameter that is cleared of flammable materials. Recreationists may cook on a liquid petroleum gas or propane stove that can be turned on and off.
Archery and upland game bird hunting seasons are under way, and hunters should use extreme caution as they enter the field, due to fire danger. There are no hunting season closures, but as of Tuesday, there are 25 closures and restrictions in place on Block Management Areas in Region 7. To check for additional closures, visit FWP’s website at http://fwp.mt.gov/hunting/hunterAccess/blockman/. Clicking on Region 7 will show updates of Block Management properties impacted by closures.
