Laramie -

Effective immediately Jelm Mountain and Forbes/Sheep Mountain Wildlife Habitat Management Areas (WHMA) are closed to human presence. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is closing these areas for safety due to the Mullen Fire. There is no anticipated opening date for Jelm or Sheep Mountain WHMAs at this time.

The X-Bar Hunter Management Area, located along Highway 230, east of Sheep Mountain, is also closed.

These add to the already numerous closures and restrictions under the Medicine Bow National Forest closure order

The Mullen Fire is currently 77,950 acres with minimal containment. More details can be found on the Mullen Fire webpage.
