French Creek Fire

I have not seen any post on this yet. A total of 500 acres burned, how does this affect hunting this year in those wmu areas? I know that iv read that a fire can help a forest and wildlife sometimes aka new growth ect...look foward to see how you guys feel on this. I wonder how badly it effected the number of deer in the population.

Re: French Creek Fire

There is a post started yesterday.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: French Creek Fire

Wow,500 acres.Depending on the severity,this year may have slim pickens but within another 3 years,it should be an oasis for deer and other game.

Re: French Creek Fire

Fire is good for the land just not the nesting birds.

Re: French Creek Fire

If I`m not wrong,I think it was mostly underbrush that burned.If thats the case the forest floor should be lush and green next year.

Nature can teach us alot.
