Tis the season for a little Elk Hunting and State Forest Discovery

August 31, 2011 7:09 pm Published by

Rounded a bend in the road near the big cut I posted a couple years ago and what did I find?

A big, nasty landslide directly above a tributary of one the most productive winter steelhead and fall chinook rivers in our state. I can hear ODF’s line already, “Our Geo Tech checked that site and determined that it was an active site and logging or road construction had nothing to do with it”. Well I’ve been hunting in this area for over 30 years and all the 100 year floods and water events didn’t make that slope slide. But that one logging road cut into the hill at the top did.

Shame on us for questioning ODF State Forest Practices.
