Please visit before you go. While out hunting and recreating, please remember to use caution in the forest. During the fall, dry grass and branches can be ignited into a wildfire when campfires aren't properly extinguished. If you have a campfire remember to soak it with water, stir it and soak it again. The fire isn't out until it is cool to the touch.
