It will continue to burn..untill they learn

I would like to sit here and go on and on ranting and raving about the numb sculls....knuckle heads, city slick'n folks that are leading me to this post.
I'm referring to the people other then one such as this hunter chick that use our woods....or shall I SAY MIS-USE our woods.
This is the time of year when the ground is dry, the grass turns brown, and every step you take through the mountains is so dry that an elk within a mile radius hears it crackling. One of my very favortie areas to hunt was burning this month..thanks to some careless individual(s).
I don't feel like i should have to say this but here it goes:

YOU CAN'T cut fire wood, when it's been 2 months since any kind of rainfall in the summer...
YOU CAN'T ride a dirt bike that lets off any kind of sparkage...
YOU CAN"T throw a cigarette butt out the window and think it won't cause a fire.
YOU CAN'T burn a campfire in 105 degree dry-ass conditions.

I know this all seems like common knowledge for most, but sadly it isn't. Their is so many people out their that just don't respect our forests, and mountains. This carelessness is causing elk,deer bear and many other wildlife to lose their habitat.
So, at the risk of sounding like a bitch..please help spread the word this summer...use common sense, know your burning restrictions and help keep our forests standing, and mountains huntable as kill'n season is just around the corner!!!


  1. Amen!
    Needs to be said, over and over till they get it!

  2. There will be benefits from the fire. New growth and reduced invasive weeds. The animals will return and it will be better in the long run.
    After years of fire supression let's not forget what happened in 1988 when Yellowstone went up in flames.
    I agree that some people lack common sense, no doubt about it. As the saying goes; If common sense is so common how come more people don't have any?

  3. yes... u r so right Terry! Their will for sure be benefits from the's just so hard to swallow when it's your fav area.. thanks for helping me look at the positive side! :0)

  4. Rachel,

    We get the same down here when it's dry. The palmetto litter will light up if you look at it sideways.
