Redbird Trail Clearing for Idaho Fish & Game
January 13th eleven of us spent most of the day cutting blackberries and cutting low hanging branches. A lot was accomplished, but we did not finish. The temp was cool, but had sun most of the day, so was a fantastic day to be out.
Wow, what a change in the weather for our second trip to finish the clearing and brushing on Feb.18th. Snow was deep enough that we were afraid to drive into the parking lot so we unloaded by the county road. We had a great crew clearing blackberries, Rod Parks, Carl Paulson, Rich (new member), Don and Ethan Klement, and Lorelei. We saw 100 plus whitetail deer and 2 wild sheep, 1 of them was a 3/4 curl ram. We celebrated today, as we finished cutting back the blackberries. We hope that some of the cut blackberries can be burned after the snow melts.
