I feel for those impacted. Kind of frightening!
I suppose that the fires will impact game in a major way.
I'm thinkin' it may make woofs a bit easier to hunt.

And you bet I'm keeping er wet---got all the irrigation I can on about 200 acres.
Went through a big fire deal (Poe Cabin Fire) here on the north end of Hells Canyon five-six years ago. Two "Hot Shot" teams with all their resources stopped the fire from breaking over the ridge right above the ranch. Would have kissed each one if I could have lined them up. Did personally thank the fella in charge of the fire on this end and the leader of the Hot Shot crew that did the backfiring. Two very talented men.
The point I want to make is the deer and elk were right back in the burn as soon as it cooled off. One neat thing about hunting burns and I have done that a lot in the Coast Range of Central Ca. when I was young is the horns when rubbed out on burnt brush in the following seasons are very dark with ivory tips.
Anyway it gets pretty stressful getting all the stock to a safe zone. Makes one wish the root cellar had been built larger. Hope everyone around Ketchum and Sun Valley stays safe.
