PRESCRIBED FIRE INFORMATION ~ In the fall of 2013, prescribed burns may be conducted in portions of Hunt Areas 1 and 2 on certain days. Please click HERE to see a map of these areas. Prescribed fires are planned ignitions that occur under very specific conditions. Prior to a prescribed burn, roads in the burn area will be barricaded and are monitored for smoke issues. Officials in local communities, near the areas to be burned, will be contacted before the burn takes place. Prescribed fires improve overall wildlife habitat diversity and helps promote many native tree and plants such as oaks, hickories, forbs, and wildflowers.
