Bridger-Teton extends winter wildlife closure

JACKSON, wyo – The Bridger-Teton National Forest is
extending some winter wildlife closures on the Jackson Ranger
District.
The agency says its winter travel plan will remain in effect and
some areas in the Gros Ventre (GROW-vaughn) area will remain closed
through May 15. The winter closure orders earlier had been set to
expire on May 1.
Forest Service officials say winter range is still under snow
and says there are no other suitable areas for wildlife to go.
Areas that will remain under winter travel restrictions include
Horse Creek, Wilson Creek and Josie's Ridge.
Jackson District Ranger Dale Deiter says some areas popular with
people who search for shed antlers are covered by the extended
closure.
