Skyline Forest Deer Winter Range Closure in effect

Dec 01, 2011
As of December 1st, Skyline Forest is closed to all motorized vehicular traffic.

Skyline Forest is currently under a Deer Winter Range Closure that is in effect until March 31st. The Tumalo Winter Range Cooperative Closure closes the winter range to motorized vehicles from December 1st through March 31st.  The closure area is jointly monitored and enforced by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Oregon State Police. The unauthorized use of the area by motor vehicles is prohibited and can result in prosecution and significant fines.  While the Deschutes Land Trust has not yet acquired Skyline Forest, we strongly urge the public to respect all private property in the area and comply  with the Winter Range Closure and related regulations.
