Wonder how much we will have to pay for the Lincoln?
 
I doubt that they will charge an access fee, there are too many access points to monitor, and they have been open to free access, Hancock and the other companies have more of a history of charging fees than Weyerhauser (other than North Bend), but I could be wrong....

I hope not, but Rayonier (Copalis) has just as many access points and they charge.

It was just a bad rumor! I talked to sierra pacific today and they told me flat out there are a lot of bears on there land this spring and they want some gone so they are giving out keys. The only thing different he said was that the dnr put locks and pulled locks off certain gates for access to certain areas. The other thing is that we will get our keys from the dnr not sierra pacific.

I hope the area takes in some of the East Shannon Lake Sierra Pacific/ Longview Fiber land. The Longview property is gated but they allow access on bicycle or foot. I know a couple areas that they put the feeders at to try to keep the bear from killing the trees. They still kill more every year in a few reprod stands I know of- I just hope they are in the unit. It's so close to home as well. I'm stoked!

unless they change it this year, that area is outside the boundary.

The areas that longview has the feeders in is done by houndsman.        And the keys for the bear hunt have always come from dnr.   Always a toss up what areas they will allow vehicle access to.   Another 2 weeks and we should know!
