Longview Fibre Co.'s Oregon timberlands west of Interstate 5 are now open for the bow-hunting season, the company said, because recent rains were sufficient to reduce the forest-fire threat.

The areas now open to bow hunters include the Deer Island, Nehalem and Coast Tree Farms in Columbia, Washington, Clatsop and Tillamook counties. Also being reopened are the company's southwest Washington tree farm lands west of the interstate in Cowlitz, Lewis, Wahkiakum and Pacific counties. All other Longview Fibre timberlands in Oregon and Washington remain closed to hunting and public recreation because of the fire danger.
