    Fish and Game rescues hikers not prepared for terrain, weather

    I hope people don't interpret the reporter's statement at the end as a free pass to be negligent.

    Perhaps F&G or whoever has decided that the threat of monetary fines won't really sway anyone (who cares about fines if I know I'm too smart to wind up in trouble, I mean it's just a dayhike.....) and they're trying to emphasize the risks/hazards? eg, if you get hurt, it's going to be a loooong time before help arrives.
    Never try to teach a pig to sing. It wastes your time and annoys the pig.

    I dont think the wmur new report reflect official F&G policy. Surprised I havent seen an official F&G release, it usually follows a pretty standard format and includes the obligatory plug for the Hike Safe card.
