Hunters, please ensure warming and cooking fires are completely extinguished when you are done with them. Build campfires on bare mineral soil, away from flammable vegetation like dry grass, twigs and leaves. Soak it, stir it and soak it again when you are done with your fire to ensure it is properly extinguished.

OHV hotspots


If you are using an off-highway vehicle, remember to stop often and check hot spots. Debris, like grass and twigs, can build up around the engine, exhaust and muffler. This debris can heat up, smoulder and inadvertently ignite a wildfire when it falls to the ground.
