    The road was signed for two hour delays. I came through last night, and the Overpass was mostly done.

    Thing is: There aren’t many deer here anymore. The big fires burned a lot of country. Many areas are just ground into dirt by grazing.

    How many miles of deer-hazard fence exist on Elko BLM lands????? When will we get rid of all of that? Lots more people needing jobs could be put to work dealing with fences.
