    Tygarts State Forest Closed to All Public Access & Hunting Nov. 15 through March 31

    Frankfort, KY - October 13, 2003 - The Tygarts State Forest in
    Carter County will be closed to all public access beginning November 15 to
    allow a salvage timber harvest operation through March 31, 2004, according
    to officials with the Kentucky Department of Natural Resources' Division of
    Forestry. The salvage harvest is necessary to remove downed and damaged
    trees resulting from the ice storm last winter. Removal of these trees will
    improve the overall health of the forest and decrease the wildland fire
    danger.
    During this period, no public access will be permitted, which means
    after Friday, November 14, no hunting will be permitted in Tygarts State
    Forest for the remainder of the fall hunting seasons.
    Deer (or other) hunters will not be allowed to hunt Tygarts Forest lands for
    the rest of the 2003-04 deer and small game seasons once the salvage
    operation begins.
    It is expected that open hunting on Tygarts State Forest will resume after
    the salvage operation concludes and in time for the statewide general spring
    turkey season set to open April 15, 2004.
