Was checking up on the Aspen fire and found this on the Incident report...
"The closure of Stump Springs road remains in effect. The Sierra National Forest has issued a Forest Closure Order for the Kaiser Wilderness."
Hopefully, this will not remain in effect through the season. I don't hunt the Kaiser Wilderness, just thought it might interest some who do.
"Democracy ends when the government takes from those willing to work and gives to those who aren't" Thomas Jefferson.
“There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation. One is by the sword. The other is by debt.” John Adams 1826
"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." Benjamin Franklin
The fire is still burning in the Kaiser Wilderness...
The fire has been kept out of the Kaiser Wilderness so far, it is to the west down along the San Joaquin River below Stump Springs Rd. What I am concerned with is campground and road closures in the areas near this fire. Beasore is closed past Clover Meadow and it could extend to Mono Hot Springs before it's stopped.
Go to the inciweb website to see the latest including the fire map...

http://www.inciweb.org/incident/3552/The Aspen Fire was discovered on Monday, July 22 burning on the Sierra National Forest- High Sierra Ranger District. The lightning caused fire began burning below Stump Springs Road north of Aspen Springs.
Sierra National Forest's initial suppression efforts, crews were able to keep the fire from burning into the Kaiser Wilderness. Firefighter and public safety will remain the highest priority.
I have not been up there, but this is off of the inciweb website, with the map...
Word is they kept the fire west of Stump Springs Rd.

The incident management team Is demobing tomorrow and will hand it over to the Sierra national forest. The report puts it at 85% contained .... Which means it a done deal. Mop up and rehab from here. Roads may not be open by archery but should be by rifle.
Heading up to scout this afternoon and tomorrow morning. Will post any negative conditions or concerns I find. Good luck to everyone next Saturday who are going out.
Yep. All trail heads and trails in the kaiser are closed. Saw six doe and 2 legal bucks. Not with in arrow range though, hopefully their still around by rifle opener.
