The Wallow Fire that occurred in the summer of 2011 significantly impacted various areas, resulting in obvious changes to the habitat. It burned in a mosaic pattern and some areas were impacted much more severely than others. For restrictions on camping, refer to the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests website. Game retrieval is allowed throughout the unit, except in those areas that were closed prior to the Wallow Fire, such as wildlife habitat areas. Hunters are reminded that their safety is their responsibility. Remember to Look Up, Look Down and Look Around.
