Montana Hunters Make Sure Your Warming Fire is Dead Out

Hunting seasons are exciting times for for many Montanans. As you prepare for your hunting trip, make sure you have plenty of water to put your warming fire out completely. Vegetation is dry and and wildland fires can still occur. Do your part to insure you do not start a wildland fire. Here’s a quick checklist for you.

Are warming fires allowed in the area you are hunting?

It is best to keep your fire small and manageable, no larger than three feet in diameter.

Make certain you have an adequate clear zone above and around your fire, a four foot area cleared for every one foot of flame height.

Never leave your fire unattended.

Drown your fire with plenty of water and stir. Dirt comes in handy in putting out a fire too.

Ensure it is cold to the touch before leaving.

And of course, have a safe, fun and successful hunting season.  DB
