The Forest Service says it is still deciding how to proceed following last week's shocking loss to one man's challenge to the recently revised Forest Plan for the Huron-Manistee National Forest. The Forest Service has 90 days to decide whether to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court (highly unlikely), request Reconsideration en banc (possible) or simply accept the decision and move on with a revised Forest Plan. The potential for a new Forest Plan would require the agency to more seriously consider closing off portions of the Forest to the public for recreation and hunting.
