Southeast Region

Introduction

  • Remove quotas Region wide to provide statewide consistency.
  • The use of electronic calls are currently allowed for lion hunting in many areas of the state. Harvest using this technique is low and likely occurs incidental to calling for other predator species. To provide additional opportunity the region is proposing to allow the use of electronic calls to harvest lions

The statewide mountain lion proposals are intended to:

  • Help alleviate human conflicts and livestock depredations,
  • Provide statewide consistency in harvest management,
  • Increase hunting opportunity, and
  • Reduce predation in areas with underperforming deer herds or elk populations below management plan objectives.
