Brownlee Zone A-tags can be exchanged at any Fish and Game office through the close of business (5 p.m., local time) Friday, September 18.
Hunters and anyone else heading into the backcountry are advised to check with Forest Service ranger district offices or county sheriffs’ offices in their hunt area before heading out. Fire updates can be found online at: https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/?state=16. Additional fire
