Huh. In all honesty, I rarely drive offroad in the winter time anyway so I don't think it's that much of an impact. I'm also a hunter and care deeply that my state maintain a healthy deer and elk population.
That said, these closures lasting Jan-June seem excessive and misplaced. Mating season is in the Fall (Sept, Oct) not the Spring and staying closed the mid June seems crazy. They should open up in April I'd say.
