Fires in and around Stanley

Does anyone have any news on the fires in Stanley, Idaho or Unit 36? I have been keeping an eye on the Idaho Fire Web Site, things are not looking good! We all need to pray for rain!

Dude, don't fret over the fires, the elk will be fine. The pine beetles and dense forests that need some thinning will burn this year but next year the browse and graze will be twice as healthy. Hunt the burns next year and elk will be feeding in them. Stanley's forests are all half dead anyways. The fires are natures way of healing since we won't mange forests. Elk can't live in dense pines. They need grass. I'm surprised you expect to see elk anyways. Wolves maybe, but elk? just kidding, well for now anyways.

Elk

Have seen about 2 dozen elk this year in our area. Fires are pretty much out but due to so much equipment many areas are still closed. So no hunting those areas this year.
