First off let me say I sincerely hope KP residents escape this fire unharmed.
That said, this fire will ultimately have a net positive effect on hunting on the Kenai that will last decades. This will be particularly true for moose hunting because nothing regenerates ungulate habitat like fire. The Swanson River fire in the 60's, once it recovered, made the Kenai the moose hunting mecca of Alaska, and it look like it will again. In 10 years or so things are going to get good.
I know this fire has folks worried, and with good reason, but the sooty black silver lining in all this is it will recover and when it does it will be great again for about 30 years.
If some feel this is a bit premature, I apologize.
