B. C. STATION IVIRY SATURDAY 2 P. M. PACIFIC WAR TIME HUNTERS WARNED ON FIRE SAFETY DEER SEASON WILL OPEN SEPTEMBER 16 With tin? opening of door season on September Ifi, a large number of hunters are expected to pursue the wily buck within the Sequoia National forest. Forest rangers report that bucks appear to be as plentiful as in past years. The fire situation this season Is critical due to the recent adverse weather conditions and the shortage of fire fighting personnel. Often at this season of the year fires that start are charged to hunters. This is not a true statement, as hunters as a class of forest users are very careful. I,nst season one serious fire occurred in the Hume lake district of the Sequoia National forest, which was caused by hunters. A camp fire permit should be obtained from the nearest ranger or guard station before building a fire. AH hunters are requested to be on the lookout for tracer ammunition that may bo used by inexperienced or careless hunters. Such ammunition is prohibited on national forest lands. Since men arc scarce for fire fighting, it will again be, necessary to use hunters to fight fires if they are in the area where a fire occurs. It is hoped that this will not be necessary. However, a hunter's best insurance against a disruption of his him tine: trip is to use extra care with fire and insist that other members of his party do likewise.
