Sierra Access Coalition Alert!

Just posting this Access issue for the Western folks
I haven't researched it or have an opinion ...... yet!

Sierra Access Coalition Alert!
The USFS Regional Office in Vallejo sent out new information last week
regarding the OHV Route Designation process as it will apply to
"dispersed camping" and "big game retrieval".

Last month, the Plumas NF cut all routes under 0.5 mile long out of
their route designation process. The Regional Office in Vallejo is
saying the public can't travel more than 50' off of a designated route
to camp or for hunters to retrieve their game. But apparently the
Plumas is choosing to limit this distance even further--to one vehicle
length off a designated route. This creates alot of areas that will
potentially be restricted from camping and hunting.

SAC needs input from it's members. We will be asking the USFS for a
specified distance off designated routes for game retrieval, for the
retrieval of a legally taken animal only (one trip in and one trip
out). This distance will not be for hunting, but only for retrieval of
a shot animal. As a member, what do you think that distance should be?

SAC thinks the USFS should consider designating routes to dispersed
camping sites, or else designate a resonable distance to drive off a
designated route to a dispersed camp site. Again, what do you think
that distance should be?

You are encouraged to let Sierra Access Coalition know your opinions, so
we can take them to the USFS and fight for your rights. All members are
also strongly encouraged to contact the USFS officials listed on the
website to voice your opinions.
