SWF and SSGA Urge Hunters To
“Stay On Track”
For Immediate Release: September 4, 2013
Due to extremely dry conditions developing in several areas throughout our province and the
potential risk of fires starting from vehicle use, the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation (SWF) and
the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association (SSGA) are requesting hunters to take extra
precautions and not drive off roads and trails in the southwest part of the province and other
high risk areas.
“We know that the vast majority of hunters take every step to ensure that they leave nothing
but footprints when they hunt. However, the recent warm weather and the ever present
possibilities of high winds provide the ideal conditions for uncontrolled wild fires.” says Darrell
Crabbe Executive Director of the SWF.
“We encourage all hunters to take extra precautions this hunting season with the increased risk
of fires. These precautions include carrying a fire extinguisher in your vehicle, talking to
landowners before going on land, avoiding unnecessary vehicle idling, walking when possible
and staying on existing trails.” adds Chad MacPherson, General Manager of the SSGA.
