Mountain lion take season closed in Units 66A and 76

Harvest limit of female lions has been reached

The take season for mountain lion has closed in Game Management Units 66A and 76 effective March 8. The 2017-2018 Big Game Regulations states that the mountain lion take season is to be closed when five female mountain lions have been harvested.  The dog training season will remain open in these units through March 31. Hunters will be allowed to keep mountain lions taken prior to this closure and must report them within 5 days of harvest.

As a reminder, the take season for mountain lions closed in units 71, 72, and 74 in southeast Idaho on January 19.  Here is current information on whether a quota has been met or the season has been closed for a particular game management unit anywhere in the state.
