Deer Hunting Roads Closed In Calaveras County

Arnold, CA — Due to the continuing search for missing hunter Devin Smith northeast of Arnold Sierra Pacific Industries has closed several roads to deer hunters immediately.

Forest Road 7N08 at Hwy 4 and roads on the Blue Mountain side have already been closed. Sheriff’s deputies will be stationed at these roads to turn back any potential trespassers.

S.P.I. is fearful of an accidental shooting due to the number of volunteers that are and will be involved with the search for the 37 year old Douglas Flat resident.

Smith failed to return home Monday evening from his one day hunt. The search and rescue effort was initiated Tuesday noon.
