The only problem with setting cameras now is come rifle season odds are those bulls wont even be close to there summer range.
Wants pressure hits think steep and deep for your bigger bulls. JMO

Just curious but why would you hang cameras now for the rifle hunt?  Do you expect them to be in the same areas or are you just looking to inventory them?

Luckily that tag encompasses a huge area, so he'll have options. It would be crappy to have the area you've scouted pulled out from under you though.
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.

Any idea how much they are thinking of expanding the closure?  Is this because of the American River fire? 🔥

Plenty of land to hunt in the 356 south of bumping road unless the district ranger closes the whole district which I can picture happening.

Probably will only happen if another lightning bust happens and the Ranger closes the district  to the public.

Going to be crowded in the areas that are open.  Unfortunate that 1502 is out as well.

How likely is this?  Is it actually being discussed?

please let's have learned from 2015, no campfires means none at all.  If we have even a small fire as a result of carelessness I would be surprised if they didn't close it all down.

According to inciweb map 1800 road is open so that would mean bumping unit is mostly still accessible?

The road is open to the marina but it's all under a level 3 evacuation.  They won't let you park along there.  The road is completely closed at the marina.

I ran across a post from their facebook that says "Update: The map shows that Bumping Rd is open, that is a mistake, it is closed".

Bethel unit is unlikely to be affected by anything but smoke. 

Sucks to all the Goose Prairie permit holders.  WDFW sure as hell better give you your points back.
