You would be surprised at how much area is set aside in stevens +ferry county for lynx and all kinds of critters .Not that you can't hunt it .They just won't log it .maintain roads,or general access .But your allowed to still hunt it.Its just walk in only.I'm fine with that.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

Is there any official maps off the boundaries of these areas?

To tell ya honestly never seen any maps or such.But worked in the woods for many years doing contracts for the forest service and can tell ya there where areas that was off limits to any tree cutting .Believe it or not that's up to you.

Oh I definitely believe it I was just curious about an official maps. Would be nice to know just from an access standpoint but I have no doubt such areas exist.

These animal protection groups need to get real. It's not like this road is going to have any volume of traffic on it. It's just going to be a border patrol vehicle once in a while.  I've lived around grizzlies/brown bears for over 30 years and I can tell you they don't avoid roads as a matter of preference, in fact they like to use roads themselves. Much easier meandering down a road than fighting heavy brush. I even have a photo I took this summer of a grizzly walking down the Alcan highway near Kluane Lake. The cars didn't bother him at all. there were about 10 vehicles stopped getting pictures of him.  I finally went down the road and got ahead of him and stopped and rolled my passenger window down and as he walked by my truck I snapped a picture. He never gave me a second glance.

What does affect their use of roads and areas close to roads is people shooting at them. As long as vehicles full of hunters or I should say poachers aren't using this road, the bears will think nothing of it except for it will be an easy way for them to get around.

I dont believe there is anyone map for the entire region. Every sale area goes through the NEPA process and lynx habitat is identified at that time for the potential sale area. Someone may be compiling each mapped area into one master map but ive never seen it. NEPA documents are public information, so if you were curious anout a speciific area you could probably track it down on the USFS website. That would be easiest to do if you knew the sale name.

Page 57 through 65 in the management plan outlines habitat objectives.

Actual mapped boundaries would be done at the project level.

Humans causing 77% to 90% of Grizzly deaths in North America is an absolute lie. The #1 cause of Grizzly deaths is other Grizzlies.
When you align yourself with people who beat up grandma's with strollers your opinions are from that of a psychopath. Jaded and worthless..
