Lucerne and Holden is open this year. Rio Tinto will never be finished working here but you can hunt a "couple of bucks" and eat with the special people from this village.  Good Luck  :)

Its too bad to hear about that nice older gentleman that was out in the middle of the lake and watched his cabin burn up.

Sky...the older gentleman is Sid, he took over the Domke Lake cabins after Gordon Stuart passed away, those cabins were build by Gordon a long time ago...

For everyone else thinking they are going to get some "prime" hunting in an area that hasn't been hunted in a few years, you might want to keep in mind most of it burned up just 2 years ago (little feed/forage for the long haul, just mostly light vegetation as the fire burned really hot, creating deep ash/no soil) and as of last weekend my dad's cabin at Lucerne had 39 inches of snow on it...39 inches in mid-February...he saw two does (doe & a fawn) at twin harbors, both were just skin and bones, and the doe was trying to reach up and eat pine needles off of the tree (that is a last resort food source for mule deer that often leads to death).

Just being real here and letting everyone know before they rush out and think they will find the big bucks up there...no food, harsh winter...it will take some time for it to get good again.

Yep.  The mule deer populations are getting hammered this winter.  This might be the first time in years we decide to do something besides High Buck.  Give 'em a rest before the state, in their infinite wisdom, let's wolf populations get totally out of control.  :rolleyes:
