If you are allowed to hunt with hounds, that will be the way to acually bring that population down. Hunting lions by chance is kind of like hitting the lotto.

They absolutely are in California.....

yea and ca, is starting to feel the effects of there votes.  they are haveing the first attacks on humans.. since the late 18 hundreds untill the early nintys 1990s when the hunting with dogs was stopped, there was really no known killings or maulings on a human from a mountain lion that I read of in the past history,  and I did a lot of searching.. and was suprised and found it hard to believe,,  wow  I guess the old timers did keep them in check with dogs,  they also wiped out the grizzlies, wolfs, and anything that threatened there well being. so the deaths from cougers was almost next to none.  But,, We have forgotten the past,, and now banned the use of our cainine friends.  and  Now  how many deaths have ocured since the laws have changed..  more then in the 100 years before.  ca.  leads the way for deaths, and Im not sure but I think they where the first to change the laws anyway. and its only been a few years since they got there way,,   it will only get worse as starveing young and older weaker cats are pushed closer in desperation to survive.   top of the chain predators only starve off when they run out of food.. and with smaller deer herds,,   WE WILL BE THERE ONLY OTHER HERDS TO HUNT   its allready starting in a supriseing short time,,   just jive it another ten years and see    or read the facts and see whats happening right now,,  I was suprised

There certainly are ALOT of

There certainly are ALOT of cats in Oregon. And while its true Lions take alot of deer one would be suprised how much deer is killed annually by coyotes particularly at birth. Not long ago a study was done and found up to 68% of deer mortality can be attributed to this. I hate to say it but habitat loss is another factor with Mule deer and gross mismanagement by ODGF certianly isnt helping.

I agree with you Romey,

I agree with you Romey, coyotes are doing a number on the deer herd as well, thats why every time I'm in my hunting grounds I take a day for predator control and kill as many yotes as possible. Odfw with any wildlife agency has mis managed game herds, but since we got a new director a couple years ago i have seen some real improvements.
