The letter says that private timber is shutting down a major line and it will affect access to certain parts of the unit... they didn't say what road. But we will know on 4/8

I will make a WAG and say either the 300rd, or the 310 Rd gets axed.    I'm also curious to see what weyerhaeuser roads get added to the hunt.

310 Rd being axed would cut a lot of damaged area out...

The Scott paper mainline is getting shut down for work soon.  Probably what they are referencing  in the letter.

Anybody know what road system they're shutting down? Ex. 100,200,300 line?
Also the 300 no longer is a thru road.  It blew out last year and is not likely to be rebuilt in the near future.

WDFW will give you a map at the meeting, it isn't the best quality but it is navigable.   Or If you get one of these local boys to ride along with you they know the roads like the back of their hands.

Yeah I knew about the 300 Rd wash out. Not an easy fix on that one.

That washout looks mild in that pic.  Looking down makes you pucker!

From the 2016 big game hunting regulations:
It would make sense if they connected the two at the 151 and wickersham. There is a ton of peels on   both  tree farms in that area.
