Dry timberlands closed to deer hunters

Friday, October 12, 2012by  Jon Osterberg

Lingering fire danger means thousands of Southwest Washington hunters will find their favorite areas closed for the Oct. 13 opening of deer season.
     Officials say the fire danger remains as high as it was in August, and it will take at least an inch of rainfall to make a difference. The closed forest lands – thousands of acres near Mount St. Helens and in Cowlitz, Lewis, Klickitat, Skamania, and Yakima counties – might offer poor prospects for deer hunters, anyway, as dry groundcover makes it tough to be stealthy.
