Early Mountain Lion Season Closes Without Meeting Quota

Early mountain lion season is coming to a close with only 2 cats harvested. In past years, the season has usually closed early with the quota being met before the season end date.

Early mountain lion season is coming to a close with only 2 cats harvested. In past years, the season has usually closed early with the quota being met before the season end date.

This year's early season quota is 14 and only the two lions have been taken. It could be due to many factors including fewer hunters out this year and mountain lions getting killed in snares meant for other animals. The early season ends on Sunday. The late season opens November 26th and will run through March 31 or until seven lions are taken.
