Hunters, Outdoor Recreationists Alerted to Special Restrictions and Closures Due to Wildfires

As California’s 2015 deer hunting season continues with the opening of additional hunt zones this weekend, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) is urging hunters to research where they plan to hunt in advance, as access to some areas may be restricted due to wildfires.

Current information regarding closures and restrictions can be found on CAL FIRE’s California Statewide Fire Map webpage, www.fire.ca.gov/general/firemaps.php.

CDFW does not close or open areas due to fires, but leaves that authority to incident commanders with CAL FIRE and the U.S. Forest Service.
