July 20, 1921: " 'With the hot dry winds of the past ten days sweeping the Big Horns, making the forests almost as inflammable as tinder, the forest fire hazard has never been worse with the possible exception of the summer of 1919, which was undoubtedly the driest in Wyoming's history,' declared Deputy Forest Supervisor F.L. Archer yesterday. 'However, the danger is reduced to the minimum by the lookouts we have stationed both at lookout Mountain and at the Hunter ranger station' since the beginning of the fire hazard. From these two points the men can clearly see every acre of forest land in the Big Horns and are constantly on the watch for the tell-tale curls of smoke." (Sheridan Post)
November 9, 1925: "The annual fire report for this Forest, Form 926, is attached. I very much regret having to inform you that we were unable to employ a man for the Lookout Mountain Station who was competent or willing to make the reports desired, and no record was therefore obtained of lightning storms. Next season it is planned to use every effort possible to employ a man for this lookout who is competent and willing to do the work required." (Letter to the District Forester from Forest Supervisor, Bighorn)
1935: Two men from the Tongue River CCC Camp staffed the lookout from July through September.
