Deer Season ends 15 January, but the stupid camping Rules require camping in Hunter Camps until 1 February (but next year, On Trail Camping will be allowed during Hunting Season as long as you wear Blaze Orange.Pursuant to Title 36 C.F.R. 261.50(a) and (b), the prohibitions listed in Order number 08-13-
04-13-08, applicable to the Sam Houston National Forest, dated May 16, 2013 and signed by
Forest Supervisor Mark E. Van Every are hereby terminated.
So what's the earliest date in February for an LSHT Hang?
I'm thinking Parking Lot #3 to "Hurricane Cove" near Parking Lot #6, about 7 3/4 miles. We'd meet at PL #6 and leave some cars there then shuttle over to PL#3 and camp per the 200 foot rule. Hurricane Cove is close enough to Parking Lot #6 that a cooler can be carried from there for Saturday Night silliness
14 Feb is out---that's Valentine's Day, and I think Significant Other and I are making a Bed and Breakfast trip on the 21st----so that leaves 30 January, 7 February, & 28 February.
BTW, there's a rumor that if Snaggleroot hikes this Section, he'll complete the LSHT.
