With prime summer habitat for mule deer, elk and moose, forest grouse and other game species as well as non-game species, hunting has been a major recreational activity of resort owners. Except for 1994 and 1995, when the Board elected to prohibit deer hunting primarily due to low numbers, hunting of deer has occurred annually. Elk, moose and small game have been hunted most years.
