BLM Fire Restrictions
« on: Yesterday at 11:52:54 am »
I just saw on another site that the BLM has lifted the fire danger target shooting restrictions on BLM land.

I have checked the BLM sites and can find nothing to confirm this..in fact it is still clearly stated that target shooting (among other things) is not allowed.

I really can't imagine why the restrictions would be lifted at this time.  It has not improved.  Most likely the other site was lip flapping.

Am I missing something.

    Someone told me I was not allowed to have a fire in my steel fire pit in my yard.  Do any of you know if that is true?  I have a large steel pit with a  screened cover on it plus my yard is mostly dirt anyway... I am miles from any town off the 89 in Yavapai.

    I think Yavapai county has a county wide fire ban on all private and public lands.
