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.

Did they also close up the south side of the unit along with Nile?

There's still a lot of area to hunt with the Goose Prairie permit. The Bumping GMU goes south all the way to the White Pass highway.

My mistake.  I did realize the entire GMU was open to the Goose Prairie tag.  I wonder why they used such a specific name for the tag rather than just calling it "Bumping"?  Probably to confuse noobs like me...

It still sucks from a concentration perspective.  Less room to spread out.

It includes the bumping and nile units.

Yeah it looks like the north part of the unit is inaccessible, so its gonna push a lot of hunters to the nile or the south side
