Phillip W Schneider Wildlife Area near Dayville closes due to South Fork Complex fires

Aug. 7, 2014

SALEM, Ore.—The Phillip W. Schneider Wildlife Area near Dayville (Grant County) is now closed to the public while firefighters battle the South Fork Complex Fire, which has burned nearly 40,000 acres including about 25,000 acres within the boundaries of the wildlife area.

The closure is to protect the public’s safety and to limit interference with firefighting activities.

Currently there are few visitors to the wildlife area as very few hunting seasons are open (only fall bear, cougar and some youth elk hunts are open). Deer and elk archery seasons are more popular among hunters and open on Aug. 28.

“We’ll reopen the wildlife area when fire and safety conditions allow it,” says Dan Marvin, wildlife area manager. ODFW will announce the reopening on its website.
