This is an update to all Conservation Area big game hunt lottery winners as well as other visitors to our Conservation Areas. As many uncertainties have continued to ensue due to the coronavirus problems occurring throughout our country, these properties has been closed to the public since March of 2020 as decided by the Warm Springs Tribal Council in an attempt to follow safety guidelines recommended by governmental and medical professionals.
Be advised the Warm Springs Tribal Council will continue the closure to the public for the remainder of the 2020 year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. As a result, no public hunting, camping, hiking or other access will be authorized on the properties until further notice. Please visit www.wslands.org for more information and updates on property access – if this changes we will post an update.
We would like to personally apologize for any inconveniences this may cause to hunters who have drawn a successful tag for affected hunt units in the region. We realize a lot of planning is always involved in conducting a successful hunt and wanted to afford hunters to utilize this information to alter plans as required with as much advanced notice as possible.
We appreciate your understanding and patience under these unusual circumstances this season and hope that next season will offer uninhibited hunting opportunities for all recreational hunters within the region. Please remember these Conservation Areas are private lands owned by the Tribes, and regulated public access is at their discretion. Thank you.
