The results of the March 25th meeting with the Vilas County Forestry Committee resulted in a denial of the Vilas County Snowmobile Alliance request to return to a December 1st opening date in our county snow conditions permitting. THAT MEANS IF THE MUZZLELOADER SEASON DURING CHRISTMAS/NEW YEAR WEEK HAPPENS VILAS COUNTY TRAILS CAN'T OPEN. At the meeting the Forestry Committee stated that they would not open the trails. After the Forestry Committee Meeting in an interview with the media they have said they will revisit this issue if it passes.
April 13-Conservation Congress Hearing-Held in all 72 Counties at 7PM. It is very important that Snowmobilers attend their local county meeting. There are 2 questions proposing a Muzzle Loader Gun season during the Christmas Holidays. If this would take effect snowmobile trails would not be able to open until AFTER THE CHRISTMAS/NEW YEAR HOLIDAY in Vilas County.-Vilas County Location-Sayner Community Center
