Hunters are urged to use extreme caution when hunting south of Highway 16 to Ootsa Lake as fire crews are still in the area managing the West Nadina and Binta Lake wildfire complexes.
Specific sites of concern are:
The West Nadina and Binta Lake wildfires are now 50 and 90 per cent contained but crews and equipment will be on site for most of September to patrol containment lines and extinguish hot spots. Smoke from these fires could hamper visibility.
Some Skeena region hunting seasons began Sept. 1 2010, and will run until the end of November.
To report a wildfire or unattended campfire please call *5555 on your cellphone, or toll-free to 1 800 663-5555. For more information on open fire prohibitions, area restrictions or for updates on current wildfire activity, visit www.bcwildfire.ca .
