Make Sure Your Warming Fire is DEAD OUT this Hunting Season

Hunting season is a very exciting time for many Montanans, as well as out-of-state visitors who come to hunt in Montana. 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 wildland fires can still occur. Do your part to ensure you do not start a wildland fire. Before you head outdoors know the below items.

  • 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 warming fire unattended.
  • Drown your fire with plenty of water and stir. Dirt is useful in putting out a fire.
  • Ensure it is cold to the touch before leaving.
