CUSTER, S.D. (AP) - Officials at Black Hills National Forest are urging hunters and other visitors to be vigilant and attentive to activities that could start a wildfire.

The Black Hills turkey hunting season begins this weekend and runs through May 22.

The temporary closure order for the recent Cold Fire area remains in effect until rescinded or through April 2017 to protect natural resources and public safety. Officials are reminding people that open fire is not allowed within the Black Hills Forest Fire Protection District except in established metal fire rings or grills at designated sites.

Off-highway vehicle travel is allowed only on roads and trails designated open to motorized use.
