Plan B

Postby Lefty » 09 14, 2018 •  [Post 1]

I was smoked out yesterday afternoon
I was ready to leave the area the smoke was so thick I couldn’t see elk. For a short time I had ash drifting down.

This morning I heard what seemed like extra traffic on the forest service road.

My wife sent me an update a local forest service campground and all hunt camps were evacuated .
The Sherriff dept was taking down unoccupied camps .
With the influx of hunters I think I’ll move too

Indian Butte. While hunting

Then on the way home from the hunt, from 45 miles away talking to my wife I could see smoke from the new Michaud flats fire about 5 miles from our househttps://www.eastidahonews.com/2018/09/large-fire-burning-near-pocatello-airport/Closd the freeway. My wife was worried what was burning the smoke was so black,.. sage brush

My wife had the sprinklers on she was worried :? we have a fresh plant of winter wheat, so a dirt field next door. Nasty strong winds blowing. The wind did switch
