The BLM awarded a contract under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to AMJA, Inc., a small fence construction company based in Grangeville, Idaho, to remove and replace four miles of four-strand, let-down barbed wire fence in the North Fork Owyhee Wilderness in southwestern Idaho. A 60-year-old fence was replaced with one designed to be friendly to wildlife. The job included clearing and grubbing, and building rock jacks, gates, juniper structures, and drainage crossings. Steep rhyolite and basalt canyons and rugged juniper-covered terrain did not allow vehicle access to the fenceline. All material for job had to be packed in and out by hand.
