525 doesn't appear to be in the closed area on that map/flyer; it's south west of Sedona, mostly perpendicular to the northwest of 89A. Should be A-OK for dispersed flameless camping, right?

Well, looks like they should've closed it...

Some of these fire maps can make it look like everything is closed. I camped at Woods Canyon Lake last week. Knoll Lake was closed and everything south of 260 as well. Here is a number you might call for clarification if headed up near Payson. 928-535-9859

USFS, along with BLM and AZ Forestry released this statement. They announced that due to the Monsoon rains, and projected weather forecasts, that Fire Restrictions are lifted as of today(7.13.1Cool:



www.fs.usda.gov/detail...EPRD586953



Release Date: Jul 12, 2018

Tucson, Ariz. (July 11, 2018) --- Effective Friday, July 13 at 8 a.m., the Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management, Bureau of Land Management Gila District, all districts of the Coronado National Forest, Saguaro National Park, Casa Grande Ruins National Monument, Coronado National Memorial, Chiricahua National Monument, Fort Bowie National Historic Site, Tumacácori National Historical Park, Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, and the San Bernardino, Leslie Canyon and Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuges will lift all fire restrictions in southeastern Arizona. Due to widespread precipitation across the area, additional rain in the weather forecast, and a rise in fuel moistures, it has been determined that the likelihood of wildfire has lessened to the degree that the restrictions can be rescinded.

Forest Service Takes Steps to Reduce Wildfire Caused by Recreational Shooting in Arid Areas

Tucson, AZ – May 5, 2020 – The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Forest Service, Southwestern Region is enacting a recreational shooting restriction for the Coronado, Prescott and Tonto National Forests to reduce wildfires and to protect the health and safety of employees and communities.

Beginning May 6, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. and until July 31, 2020 or until rescinded, recreational shooting is prohibited in the Coronado, Prescott, and Tonto National Forests due to current conditions. These forests are experiencing an increase in drying trends of extreme grass fuel loads resulting from above-average winter moisture. When you factor in the current pandemic, the assembly of wildland firefighters engaging in suppression efforts becomes a public health concern. Under this restriction, discharging of a firearm air, rifle, or gas gun, except while engaged in a lawful hunt, is prohibited on the listed national forests.

“The decision to implement a shooting restriction is driven by the amplified risk of wildfire in areas increasingly vulnerable to drying conditions combined with the likely resource shortage due to COVID-19 mitigation within our fire organization,” said Acting Regional Forester Elaine Kohrman. “This restriction also attempts to reduce smoke emissions that compromise first responder and public respiratory health.”

The Coronado, Prescott, and Tonto National Forests have a history of shooting related fires. Current conditions, in addition to the global pandemic, indicate that shooting will lead to shooting-caused fires if these preventive measures are not taken. Within the last two weeks alone, these forests have experienced seven wildland fires likely caused by recreational shooting, resulting in hundreds of acres burned. As a reminder, in accordance with 36 CFR 261.5(b), tracer and incendiary rounds are prohibited on National Forest System Lands. Additionally, exploding targets and fireworks are prohibited on all National Forests and Grasslands located in the Southwestern Region per Order #03-00-00-19-001 dated June 30, 2019.

The following is prohibited under the May 6 shooting restriction order:

• discharging of a firearm air, rifle, or gas gun, except while engaged in a lawful hunt.
Violating the shooting restriction may result in an appearance in federal court, fines, or other penalties. Forest visitors will still be able to engage in lawful hunting activities. While these restrictions are in place, most of the Coronado, Prescott, and Tonto National Forests are still open for dispersed recreation activities to include hunting, camping and hiking.
