Project Description:
The Coyote Fire was ignited by lightning on 7/01/2013 and contained on 7/02/2013. The Coyote Fire occurred near the western edge of the Owyhee Desert, approximately 1.5 miles South of the North Fork of the Little Humboldt River. A total of 89 acres of BLM managed lands were burned within the William Stock grazing allotment, with 62 of those acres classified as Sage Grouse Preliminary General Habitat (PGH) and 27 acres classified as Sage Grouse Preliminary Priority Habitat (PPH). 100% of the fire affected area is classified as mule deer winter range, and pronghorn summer range. The fire occurred in ecological site R025XY019NV, which is typified by claypan soil, and receives an average of 10-12" of precipitation annually. Ecological site R025XY018NV, in reference condition, is generally dominated by Low sagebrush, with components of Bluebunch wheatgrass and Thurber's needlegrass. The Coyote Fire has not been affected in the past by documented wildfires.
