Stewardship Message of the Week:

With moose season starting soon, the Forest Service would like to provide a reminder that there are free permits available for possession and/or use of motorized winches and chainsaws in the Stikine-LeConte Wilderness. Winch permits are used by moose hunters for dragging out their harvest, and chainsaw permits allow for the gathering of subsistence fuelwood from non-green trees. The use of these motorized equipment in the Wilderness without a permit could be a violation. Call the District Office at 907-874-2323 for a free permit.
