Past burn sites
« on: September 13, 2019, 07:47:30 PM »
Anyone have experience with blacktail and past wildfire areas? I found an area that looks like it was burned a few years back and thinking about checking it out. Any input?

Burns and new growth are always good
Keep the wind in your hair, and the sun at your back.

A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

For sure, check it out.  Not many burns in BT country, but the results are generally predictable.  Lots of rapid new and varied browse for the first few years and after a few years, a ballooning population of deer.  Early on, the area should attract many local deer once the burn is really re-growing.
