Arizona: OHV Restrictions in Kaibab National Forest Allow for Big Game Retrieval

Friday, August 20, 2010

The Tusayan Ranger District of the Kaibab National Forest has issued a draft plan for managing off-highway vehicle (OHV) use.  OHV use will be restricted to those roads and trails designated in the plan, depending on which management alternative is selected following public review and comment. 

Tusayan Ranger District offers four plan alternatives for managing OHV use.  Alternative 1 is the status quo and is used as a baseline to compare the changes to be made in OHV use by the other alternatives.  Alternatives 2 and 3 allow motorized big game retrieval up to a mile off of a designated road or trail.  Alternative 4 allows no such exemption for hunters using OHVs for game retrieval. 

Comments on the plan are being accepted until August 30th and can be emailed to comments-southwestern-kaibab-tusayan@fs.fed.us.  The plan can be found online by going to http://fs.usda.gov/goto/kaibab/projects and look for the Tusayan Travel Management Project.  If you have questions about the plan or need additional information, you may call 928-635-5649.
