The hunting of all mountain lions in northcentral Montana hunting districts 405, 447 and 471, in portions of Cascade, Chouteau, Judith Basin, and Fergus counties, closed at one-half hour after sunset on Sunday, November 20, 2011. These hunting districts will re-open for the hunting of all mountain lions for the winter season beginning December 1, 2011.

The order halting the hunt came shortly after Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks officials received word that the pre-established harvest quota for the districts combined had been met.

  A great success for the FWP


A great success for the FWP and for the Montana hunters who were able to fill their tags and assist the state in the management of the mountain lion population there.  Congrats to them and best wishes for success to those going out for the December 1st mountain lion winter season.  Another bucket list hunt for me someday!
