For those of you that observe in the Tonto National Forest, the Travel Management Plan is well underway. The following is contained in the Travel Analysis Process Report regarding "dispersed camping" (which is what most observers do): "Motorized Dispersed Camping and Big Game Retrieval Roadside parking up to one-vehicle length from the edge of the road (FSM 7716.1) would continue for purposes of dispersed motorized camping, but motor vehicle use off designated roads and trails for purposes other than dispersed camping would not be allowed" Please take this into account for future observing sessions to avoid an unexpected visit and possible fines from forest rangers. All of the national forests are in the process of setting up the Travel Management Plan and are in different phases (I believe Prescott and parts of Kaibab are complete), and the different forests have different rules for dispersed camping. For more information, refer to the Tonto National Forest web pages below.
