This temporary area closure affects public lands in the Challis Herd Management Area (HMA) south on U.S. Hwy 93 from the junction of U.S. Hwy 93 and Idaho State Hwy 75 to Custer County. The majority of the temporary closures will be located around Spar Canyon Road and Road Creek Road. The location and duration of the closure will depend on the location of the wild horses and the time needed to move the horses to the gather corrals. The legal description of the closures, with their potential capture sites, is in Custer County, Idaho and more particularly described as:
The area closure is necessary to ensure the safety of the contractors, employees, public and the horses while gather operations are under way. Capture sites will be closed one at a time when being used for capture operations, rather than simultaneously. Closures will be limited to the smallest area needed to conduct the daily gather operations and will move from capture site to capture site to ensure the public has access to their public lands when operations are not occurring near the capture site or holding facility. Where possible, closed areas would be open to traffic when directed by a pilot car. The area affected will be posted the evening before, by 8:00 p.m. MST, at the Challis Field Office and also on the BLM Idaho Web site at:
This closure order will be posted in the Challis Field Office on the date this notice is published in the
43 CFR 8364.1.
