John Day River, Oregon.
Camera crews from Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB) have used drones to film presentations in wilderness areas and on wild rivers including the John Day River.
Recently I asked the Director of the Prineville BLM to notify OPB that the use of drones on certain sections of the John Day river was not allowed.
I contacted Dennis Teitzel, Vale BLM District Manager on October 25, 2017. A response was promised by early December. At this point, I am still waiting.
