GFP FIRE CAUTION… The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department is cautioning the public to keep fire danger in mind when accessing lands owned and managed by the agency.
In western South Dakota, where several forest and prairie fires have occurred, GFP has closed several vehicle-access trails in Game Production Areas. Closure signs are being posted at those trails, and some vehicle-access trails will even be gated to indicate closure.
Access trails on other Game Production Areas in the state will remain open to public use for the time being, but extreme caution is advised for people who use those lands.
Assistant wildlife director Emmett Keyser encourages people who use public lands to limit any activities with the potential to accidentally start fires. He says people who use those public areas carry firefighting equipment, such as water and shovels, so any fires that start can be quickly extinguished.
