Hunters Should Use Caution in Centennial Valley


DILLON (Oct. 12, 2012) – The Bureau of Land Management reminds the public that logging operations are currently active in the Price Creek drainage of the Centennial Valley in southwestern Montana, and will continue to be active in portions of the contract area Monday through Friday throughout this year’s general rifle hunting season.  The public is advised to use caution when hunting in the area, and to watch for heavy equipment and log truck traffic.

Logging activity during rifle season will be within 275 acres on the west side of the Price-Peet Road, about 2 miles from the South Centennial Valley Road.  The spur roads accessing the logging units are closed to the public and signed to mark where logging is occurring.  Logging trucks travel down these spur roads to the Price-Peet Road and out through the South Centennial Valley Road to Interstate 15.

Maps of the active logging area can be picked up at the Dillon Field Office, 1005 Selway Drive, in Dillon.  For more information, contact Aly Piwowar, BLM forester, at (406) 683-8000.
