    Ummmm.....hate to ask, but...

    Steve, didn't we plan on having the first Hoosier Hang in the Deam, but had to move it to the Nebo Ridge area due to the number of attendees? Since the Deam is a Wilderness Area, isn't there a limit of 10 in a group? I don't think this hang has ever been below twice that number....

    "I fish because I love to; because I love the environs where trout are found, which are invariably beautiful... because, in a world where most men seem to spend their lives doing things they hate, my fishing is at once an endless source of delight and an act of small rebellion; because trout do not lie or cheat and cannot be bought or bribed or impressed by power, but respond only to quietude and humility and endless patience...." --Robert Traver

    Ah, Shucks,,heres the rules..

    US Forest Service
    Brownstown Ranger District
    811 Constitution Avenue
    Bedford, IN 47421
    Phone: 812-275-5987
    Hoosier National Forest website



    WILDERNESS ETIQUETTE AND REGULATIONS
    All saddle, pack, or draft animals must be kept on trails posted or otherwise designated for horse use. Trails authorized for horse use are marked by brown plastic posts with a decal depicting a horseback rider. Other areas are closed to horse use, but hiking is allowed anywhere within the area. (See map on reverse for trail system).
    Trail Use Permits are required for riding a horse on the Hoosier N. F. Permits may be purchased as annual permits ($35/year) or day-use tags ($5/day) from Hoosier N.F. offices and some local stores. A tag is required for each adult rider. Horseback riders 16 years of age and younger are exempt from the permit requirement. A permit tag is not required for foals without a rider or pack stock. Annual permits must be signed.
    Camping is prohibited within 100 yards of Tower Ridge Road between Highway 446 and the junction of Hickory Ridge Road (1500 W) and Maumee Road (1150 N). Note: Camping is still permitted within Blackwell Horse Camp.
    Camping within 100 feet of ponds, lakes, trails, or streams is allowed only on designated sites. Walk-in camping throughout the rest of the wilderness area is not restricted.
    Parking is allowed along Tower Ridge Road in only three locations: Blackwell Horse Camp, Grubb Ridge Trailhead, and the Hickory Ridge Fire Tower.
    Use of wheeled vehicles, including carts, wagons, or bicycles, is prohibited within the wilderness area.
    Campsites must be occupied the first night, and may not be left unattended for more than 24 hours without permission. Camping is limited to 14 days.
    The only food or beverage containers permitted within the Wilderness are those intended for reuse or burnable packaging. Spray paint is not allowed in the Wilderness. Cans and glass bottles are not allowed. If you packed it in, pack it back out. Never bury garbage.
    Hunting is permitted in the Wilderness. Target shooting or practicing is not allowed.
    Stock may not be tied within reach of any living tree.
    Group size is limited to 10 persons or less.


    Now that I think about this,,we are not hiking in as a group,,just meeting in the woods,,,and your definitely not going to run into a Ranger back in the woods. Besides,,they have been sequestered.

    Does anyone have a real problem with this? We will split up in several groups once most of us gets there.
