Fall Safety Reminders from Shoshone National Forest

The Shoshone National Forest encourages all visitors and hunters to take the time to review applicable rules and regulations prior to heading out to the Forest this fall.  The Shoshone National Forest has a motor vehicle use management plan which limits ATVs and ORVs to designated roads and trails. Motor vehicle use maps are available on the Shoshone National Forest website ( and at all Forest offices in Cody, Lander, and Dubois. Ensure that your ATV or ORV is in compliance with all state and federal laws prior to use.

Although there are currently no fire restrictions on the Shoshone National Forest, dry conditions exist in parts of the forest. All individuals hunting, recreating, or working on the forest are reminded to remain cautious when building and attending campfires. Despite the lack of a visual flame or embers, many campfires that appear to be out hold enough heat to potentially ignite adjacent fuel sources. Ensure your campfire is cool to the touch before you leave.

Hunting in bear country requires extra vigilance. Shoshone National Forest Wildlife Biologist Andy Pils stated, “Bears are very active during the fall months as they search for food in preparation for hibernation. This activity increases the chances of people encountering bears and is why we all need be extra diligent about storing food and game carcasses properly while also exercising basic precautions for safe hunting in grizzly bear country.” To learn more about hunting in bear country, visit the Wyoming Game and Fish website at
